About this event:
What kind of Limp do we use to ignore God’s direction?
As I stood in line at the election polling station I saw a number of persons pass by who struggled to get in the long line behind me. I was there early so I only had 50 persons in front of me but behind me before the doors opened there were at least 500– 600 persons. I saw persons limp by with canes, walkers, carrying children and strolling children. It was an impressive statement to voice your vote.
But how did all of those persons get that limp? Was it from an injury? Was it from birth? Was it self-inflicted or from an accident?
Sebastian Janikowski experienced a real injury in the Cowboys-Seahawks wild card game in January 2019. Following a missed field goal, Janikowski was out for the rest of the game because of a torn hamstring. But sometimes players get up limping when nothing is wrong at all. Particularly if you watch a pro-soccer game you see the best actors in the world.
The limp implies that the player is not at full capacity. The limp declares that I am not able to function as good as everyone else. The limp is a sign that I am not able. I am not able to run, to walk, to do what I used to do, to go where I used to go. Sometimes a limp is just an excuse so that we don’t have to do what we don’t want to do.
Don’t allow our imperfections to keep us from the perfection of Christ plan for our lives. It is easy to say I can’t do it, I am not able to do it, I don’t have the ability any more to do it. It takes great faith and courage to say, “With Christ’s help, I can do all things.” God wants to use us in far greater ways than we imagine, we dream or we think that we are able. He uses us to accomplish things that we never believed we could accomplish.
Philippians 2:13 “For it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.”
Ephesians 3:20 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work with in us.”
Put your faith and hope in the Lord and see what great things he has in store for you.
