God is not interested in your ability, He is interested in your availability

If you say go is the word for today. This week I have been studying about obedience in our women's bible study. As I was studying last week, the Lord laid If you say go on my heart and into my margin it went. Today as I was sorting through all the emotions from yesterday's events, this song was playing through my mind. When someone you know has passed away it really makes you think about what you are doing. Sometimes we don't understand what God is doing yet we can take comfort in His word and His promises. He is an all knowing God and His ways are higher than our ways. No matter what life throws at us, He is there with His hand extended out to us. There is nothing that will happen in our life that God doesn't know about or that He can't equip us to handle. Therefore, if He is calling you to do something, don't you think He will make sure you have everything you need to accomplish His will? Obedience is the outward sign of our love for Him. If He says go then go! If He says wait, then wait! Here are the lyrics to If you say go. May the Lord give you the strength to do what He is asking you to do and may you do it whole heartedly today!!

If You say go, we will go
If You say wait, we will wait
If You say step out on the water
And they say it can't be done
We'll fix our eyes on You and we will come

Your ways are higher than our ways
And the plans that You have laid
Are good and true
If You call us to the fire
You will not withdraw Your hand
We'll gaze into the flames and look for You
