Be Strong and Courageous and Do It

And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever. Be careful now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong and do it. ... Then David said to Solomon his son, "Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished."... And David the king said to all the assembly, "Solomon my son, whom alone God has chosen, is young and inexperienced, and the work is great, for the palace will not be for man but for the LORD God."

-1 Chronicles 28:9-10, 20 and 1 Chronicles 29:1


Being called by God to do something that you alone are not capable of doing is a weighty thing. But, being called by God is not about your ability to do the work, it is about your ability to serve Him with a whole heart and with a willing mind. God has always promised us that the work He calls us to do, will be accomplished by Him. In starting Go Do Something we have felt the weightiness of our own inabilities. But, we find peace in God's promise to those who are obedient to what He has called them to: He is our strength and our provider, nothing is too difficult for Him. We hope and rejoice in the fact that He can use our uselessness. We were greatly encouraged by reading the verses above because we are young and inexperienced, yet we know that God has called us to serve Him through this ministry.

When we look at the vast majority of Christians, we see a watching and waiting world, trembling to do God's will. Rather than, humble servants ready and passionate to fulfill all His commands. We hope these verses move your heart to action for God's glory,"Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you."

Grace and Peace- Go Do Something

    GDS Theme Passage

    "For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus
    Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for
    Jesus' sake. For God, who said, 'Let light shine
    out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give
    the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in
    the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure
    in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power
    belongs to God and not to us."
    - 2 Corinthians 4:5-7
