“Do not ask the Lord to Guide your Footsteps if you are not willing to move your Feet.”
I don’t know who wrote this, but I think it’s magnificent.
I am quick to ask for something, yet neglect to put any effort into the change I seek whatsoever.
And isn’t that the tendency?
I have to ask myself why I feel so entitled. It may be cause of the way I grew up. If I was hungry, I told someone and food arrived at my fingertips in mere minutes – if not moments.
It is most difficult to realize that the Lord does not owe me a single thing. I owe him my life and devotion. Without him, I wouldn’t have life.
Instead, I live most of my days quite the opposite of the way I should.
The ultimate compromise: if I am eager for him to change my circumstances, I need to be equally as eager to actively change them as well.
