It's an uneasiness in your spirit that says, "This just isn't right." That's probably the stirring of the Holy Spirit. Listen to that inner warning.

It doesn't say like it did on the house that I bought: "Sold." The sign on your life and mine says: Bought. You are a purchased person. You belong to the person who paid for you. Are you living that way? Are you living for the One who gave His life so you could have hope, so you could have a life, so your life could have meaning, so you could have an eternity in heaven, who paid with His life for yours?

Be the person that God made for a unique role that you are destined to fulfill. You compare with somebody else? You'll never get off the ground. You try to copy someone else, and you will never be the person you were created to be.

We're not talking about some legalistic ritual where you have check the box Christianity: Read my Bible and prayed. No, not doing your duty. It's a love thing. Your Share of the Load - #6798 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-personal-power/your-share-of-the-load-6798 2013-01-30T09:46:44-05:00 God has a part of His load for you to carry. No child of God is exempt. "To whom much is given, much is required." So begin on your knees, "Lord, break my heart for something that breaks Yours." Take some ownership for one of those needs. And what will God do with your willing heart? I don't know, but He'll make your life bigger as you get beyond caring about what just concerns you.

And then, what am I going to do differently today because of what He said?" The Bible isn't just to be mastered. It's to be obeyed.
