Expendable.

This is a reminder more for me than for you.

God will do what He said He will do.

He will bring His kingdom. He will wipe away tears. He will bring about justice. He will do exactly what He said He would do. He's already doing it.

So whether I choose obedience to what He is calling me to is of little consequence to what He will do.

I'm expendable.

So are you.

God will do what He said He will do.

It's not that you ought to do what He says. It's not that you have to do what He says.

It's that you GET to do what He says. You have the privilege of being a part of what He is bringing about.

Success isn't that you achieved some mark, hit some milestone, reached some goal...Success is that you were faithful in obedience.

It's not that you have to follow rules to appease the vengeance of a wrathful God.

It's that by grace, you have the opportunity to join Him in what He is doing.

Bringing Shalom. Bringing Reconciliation. Bringing Hope. Bringing Glory.

But make no mistake.

He will do it with or without you.

It's just that you will come alive like never before if you say Yes.
