Hey guys! So… recently the Holy Spirit has asked me to do something that most people would think was absolutely crazy! It’s not completely unheard of… But definitely something that’s not really done.
I have prayed about this and done tons of research! But the Lord gave me a dream that I believe was confirmation. Do you guys remember when Noah started building the ark? And people thought that he was absolutely crazy? It had never rained before but he knew that he knew he knew that God told him to build an ark!
That’s kind of like the position I’m in right now…
But Noah continued to build it no matter what everyone said! They ridiculed him, told him that he was nuts, and still he worked on the ark… he spent 120 years building the ark! 120 years! That is dedication and grit if you ask me!
At this point I feel a lot like Noah, or at least how he must’ve felt. Because I am pretty much in uncharted territory. But God has given me the specifics of what he wants me to do! All I have to do is trust him even through the craziness, even through the ridicule, even through the doubt!
If God has given you something to do, you do it! It might seem like absolute craziness to everyone but God knows what he’s doing… God has a specific plan for each of us and this is His plan for me!
So I encourage you today that if you are doing something that is considered absolute craziness, but God has given you the specifics and the plan to do it, then trust God and He will guide your steps!
I love you guys.
God bless and peace out peeps!
