God may be calling you to do something greater that you feel you’re not ready for - Daily Bible Reflections August 15,2014

Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary            
 
GOD IS READY
 
“The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is his name.” – Luke 1:49
 
       Have you ever done something that you weren’t prepared for? In the Bible there are many men and women who weren’t ready when God called them. One of the best examples of this would be Mary. God called her to be the Mother of Jesus. At 15, without any relations with a man, this was a shocker. She definitely wasn’t ready. But what was more shocking was her response. “Be it done to me according to Your word.” In other words, “Yes, Lord, I trust You.”
       Friend, God may be calling you to do something greater that you feel you’re not ready for. God’s message for you is that He doesn’t need you to feel ready. He just wants you to follow and obey.
       Blessing is God’s department, obedience is ours. Even if you’re not ready, God is saying you can get ready on the way, because He is ready. He is ready to empower you and provide for you.
       So today I encourage you to say yes and trust God for the greater things He has envisioned for you. Mike Viñas (mikemichaelfcv@yahoo.com)
 
 
Reflection: Interestingly, Mary pronounces the verse above even before she did what she was called to do. In faith, she was already trusting God for the greater things that will arise in her life because of her obedience.
 
Father, I may not fully understand, but help me to completely obey.
 
St. Alipius, pray for us.
