You Can’t Handle the Truth! Part 1

RobDevotions

So many people say they want to get better…

Get smarter,

Become a better athlete,

Draw closer to God,

Make the world a better place

Stop poverty

End Terrorism

Take your pick. I got more!

The list goes on and on, but today I was wondering why so few of us ever get very far with these lofty goals.

As you probably guessed by now, I have a theory.

It’s multifaceted.

First, there is a difference between a vision that God wants accomplished and a dream that an ordinary person has.

I used to dream of being an Olympic downhill racer!

Not God’s vision for my life.

I used to dream of going somewhere with my guitar and singing!

Never got much past singing in the shower.

I used to dream of reaching thousands with the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is where the dram and the vision meshed!

As an Olympic skier I wanted to win a gold medal and stand on the podium giving glory to God.

That would have been fleeting.

As a Singer/Song writer/Guitar player extraordinaire, I could have uploaded some dribble to itunes maybe…

Not sure God would get anything out of that.

But, as the pastor He called me to be, in the city he called me to, at the most amazing church I’ve ever seen?

These verses become reality!
