Appropriate Expectations

“For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach.” (Deut. 30:11)
 
If God expects something of you, He will provide the strength to do it. Excuses are lists of what is preventing us from doing something, but God has removed all things that would prevent us from successfully serving Him.
 
You are smart enough, strong enough, rich enough, and talented enough to do what God has commanded – you may just not be brave enough or faithful enough. That is the blunt truth of God’s Word. It isn’t that the command is too hard, it is often that we are too soft. Excuses are our way of avoiding the hard truth that our shortcomings are personal and not circumstantial.
 
When it comes to following the Bible, it is never ‘I can’t’, it is only ‘I won’t’.
 
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14:23)
