So Many Excuses

Luke 14:18-20

18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

Here lately I have found myself making excuses. I have preached against doing this many times. I have spoken that we have to push them aside and get to work. This morning it hit me that I was doing the very thing I had preached against. I would get busy and not do what God put on my heart to do. I am not alone. Many other Christians have done this. I have put off things and claimed I will get to it tomorrow. However, tomorrow may never come. God opened my eyes to a few things and now I see that I had no reason to make excuses. I see that God will make a way for work to be done. If you are making excuses because what God is telling you to do seems impossible, stop and know that God will make a way. Know that he has a plan. It may take you out of your comfort zone, but it is worth it. You become bolder, stronger, and more blessed the more you move for God. So stop making excuses and trust God in his plan.
