I often feel that I am in the midst of a great adventure from God. We talk about “calling” in our culture a lot, and going on “missions” for God.
Sometimes, though, I put tremendous pressure on myself to make sure I don’t mess up that mission. Deep down, I secretly feel that if I fail, God’s design for my life, my community, Nashville, the world, etc. will not come together.
But here is something I recently wrote on a note, for me, that might also be a note for you:
The success of God’s plans are not dependent on my ability to execute them.
He will not be handcuffed by my failures or unleashed by my accomplishments. He is bigger than that.
The next time the enemy tries to tell you otherwise, remind yourself that’s a lie. God invites us into his story out of love, not employment. The pressure of perfection is off. We’ve got a perfect God.
