What are you waiting for?

What more do you need in order to proceed to the next level of God’s will for your life?

Is it the approval of men?

More money?

Another confirmation from God?

I’ll tell you what most likely is the challenge.  You see what God is calling you to, but you have yet to become what you see.  The creative person can sing, dance, write and express wonderful and profound concepts.  The danger, however is when the creative person rest their hope upon the actual gift and fail to associate their lives with the giver of the gifts – Jesus Christ.  This is what hypocrites means; “to act”.

Is it amazing at how even the secularist who have yielded their gifts to the world’s agenda and the message of the flesh, attribute thanks to God when they receive a reward. Why do they do this even though they are not living for God?  Because their spirit recognizes that God is love and that the gift they have could in no way come – but from God.

Fearless acts of obedience is about arriving to a place of perfect love and submitting to it.

It is enjoying this perfect love that God has for you whether you “do” something for God or not.  It is no longer seeking to earn this love by way of your gift as to earn being approved by God.  That is the law and by the law shall no man be justified.

Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

The highest expression of your gift is not a song, a dance, a poem.  It is your heart in constant rhythm with God regardless of who you are, where you are or what your gift might be. Whether in your bathroom or on stage, fearless acts of obedience are a result of fearlessly presenting your heart before God for God.  Your fears, tears, hopes, failures, and expectations are all laid bare before Him. Being satisfied and overjoyed with such a relationship, will alone, enable your gift to be elevated and therefore elevate others to an expression of arts from above the realm.

This is the most fearless “act” you’ll ever do… become ONE with God as you only desire.
