Just Do It!

just-do-itYears ago, Nike had a commercial that had the tag line… “Just do it!”
That’s exactly what God wants us to do at times… Just do it!
I believe in prayer. I believe that God does mighty things through prayer. I believe that God wants us to pray to discern His will. But, there are times when we don’t necessarily need to pray; we need to act! Now, don’t start throwing religious tomatoes at me. Let me explain.
In the book of Exodus, the people of Israel have been freed from Egyptian bondage. They are leaving Egypt when all of a sudden, Pharoah changes his mind. So, Pharoah and his army begin pursuing the people of Israel. Moses looks behind him and sees the Egyptian army coming. The people of Israel cry out for Moses to do something. Then, Moses prays and asks God what to do?
God says, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving” (Exodus 14:15)!
I love that verse! “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get rolling…(My translation).”
That’s exactly what God wants us to do at times… just get moving. Folks, we don’t need to pray to ask God if we should worship. Find a church and worship!
We don’t need to pray if God wants us to tithe. Just do it!
We don’t need to pray if God wants us to resolve a misunderstanding between us and someone else. Just do it!
We don’t need to pray if God wants us to serve… Just do it!
Maybe you have been praying about something and God’s answer is, “Stop praying and get moving!”
