Have you read something in the Bible that you sense God asking you to apply to your life? Do you hear His voice in your heart asking you to do something for Him that seems really big? Do you feel the Holy Spirit pulling you to make a change in your lifestyle? Are you waiting for God to fulfill something you believe He has promised you?
God is as eager to bless you, heal you, give you good things, or fulfill a big purpose in your life as a father or mother is to give good things to their children. (Matthew 7:11) Most of what He wants for you is bigger and more eternal than you could imagine for yourself.
But too often we humans are so short-sighted, selfish, or afraid that we don’t take advantage of what God offers. It’s like a child afraid to get onto a bicycle or jump into a swimming pool. The joy of swimming or riding a bike is waiting for you, but it takes being willing to risk, and trusting that your parent (God) will be there.
God has been dealing with excuses from us humans for a long time. Moses complained that he couldn’t speak well when God sent him on a big mission (Exodus 4:10-12). The children of Israel saw themselves as grasshoppers, and failed to enter the land of Canaan when they could (Numbers 13:33). God had to warn Jeremiah not to worry about his young age when God called him to speak for Him (Jeremiah 1:7). God certainly understands our human emotions, but He still expects us to step up and respond when He speaks.
