Living Free From Excuses by Brent Phillips
We are living in a culture where everyone is told they are doing just fine. That won’t motivate us to do better. We have to have something to aspire to; to fight for. Life is not meant to be lived on the couch. God has a better purpose for us. The Bible talks about running a race not kicking back in your beach chair.
Speaker: Brent Phillips
We find all kinds of reasons why something can’t be done. When we make an excuse the only person who is being disadvantaged is ourselves. Just because the world accepts your excuse, don’t think it’s not a lame excuse. When there’s no room for excuse, you’ll make a plan. When you give up your excuses you can begin to experience the life God created for you. It’s time to let go of the excuses and burst out. Go for it! What excuse do you use that keeps you from all that God has for you? You are in bondage from your excuses. If you want to stay exactly as you are, God can do nothing for you. If you say “that’s just the way I am” you are denying God’s power to change you.
When we always make excuses, we will apply it to God’s word and start to make excuses why He won’t do what He said He would. God does not make excuses. He does not lie. We need to stop making excuses and be what God called us to be. Don’t cross out the verses that talk about always and everything and no limits. We need no excuses because we can do all things through Christ. Don’t excuse yourself right out of the plan and purpose God has for you.
Take God at His word. Whatever excuse is holding you back, God has a promise to destroy that excuse. But we have to want to grab hold of it. All things are possible.
