“The Delivery Room…”

hospital-207692_640Hopefully I just got your attention. That was the title of my Pastor’s sermon yesterday. Let me ask you a question that was ask of us yesterday. “do you really trust GOD to bring forth the things in you that He is trying to accomplish and develop?” What has God been trying to work out in your life? My life? How long will it take for you to DELIVER? When Pastor spoke those words yesterday it was like an ICE PICK jamming me in the chest.
Looking back it appears I’ve fought my entire life to NOT DO what I felt God calling me to do at 15. Now for those of you who have problems with math like me, that’s a 46 year problem. That’s 6 years past the 40 spent in the wilderness. What about you? Could there be something in your own life that GOD has been asking you to do or something He wants you to accomplish that you’ve turned your back on?
How long will you Labor? The good news is, It’s NOT TOO LATE…. Life can definitely get you off track. Too busy, too costly, too demanding, what might people think and the list goes on. GOD however is standing still just waiting for you to SEEK HIM OUT. He has the plan, he is holding it in HIS hands and He is simply waiting for you to DELIVER……
In John 16:21 scripture says “It will be like a woman suffering the pains of labor. When her child is born, her anguish gives way to joy because she has brought a new baby into the world.” The scriptures prior to this one talk about being in anguish and grief and coming back to JOY…. Something I”m learning now.
So are you holding back from GOD? Are you in anguish over that “thing” He has pricked your heart to do but you’ve never done? I can relate cause in my own life i’ve used every excuse whether I did so willingly or unaware. WILL you join me in 2016 and SEEK GOD with your whole heart? It doesn’t mean being perfect, it doesn’t mean we still won’t slip from time to time, it doesn’t mean you have to give up living… IT simply means you have to DELIVER…..
