It’s been said,Guest Posting “You can’t steer a parked car.” How would you
ever get anywhere if your car is not running, let alone steer it?

If you have a big dream that God has placed in your heart are you
pursuing it? Are you in motion, or are you sitting idle? Maybe
you’re waiting for God to do something.

Some people would say that God can do anything. I disagree. God
cannot do just anything. He has a nature and he will not act in a
manner that is inconsistent with His nature. For example, God
cannot lie. It’s against His nature to lie. It’s also against His
nature to make you do something that you refuse to do. Like,
accept His Son who died on the cross to save you from your sins.
Jesus only saves you according to your belief and confession in
Him (Romans 10:9,10). It’s your responsibility to ensure your
salvation just like it is your responsibility to accomplish your
dreams.

It is your responsibility to accomplish your dreams, but remember
what Jesus said in John 15:5, “Without Me, you can do nothing.”
Obviously, we need the Holy Spirit’s help in everything we set
out to do. In our own strength, it’s fleshly, weak, frustrating,
and it will surely fail. “Unless the Lord builds the house, they
labor in vain who build it” (Psalm 127:1) We simply must be in
agreement with God by aligning our will up with His.

If you know what you are supposed to do, do it. The Holy Spirit
releases His power the moment you take a step of faith. Just like
a parked car cannot be steered, God cannot steer you, unless you
are moving.

God waits for you to act first. Just like when Joshua faced an
impassible obstacle, the flooded waters of the Jordan River
receded only after the leaders stepped into the rushing current
in faith (Joshua 3:13-17).

Step out in faith and go after those things that God has called
you to do. Time is wasting. If you are not sure what you are
supposed to be doing, find out now by asking the Holy Spirit. He
will reveal His desire for you if you will seek Him.

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God
has revealed them unto us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searches
all things, the deep things of God.” And then verse 16 says, “Who
has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we
have the mind of Christ.”
