Big brass ones

Do you have the cojones to obey God? Can you say God and cojones in the same sentence? I may have just lost some readers right there, but you know what? The truth is, sometimes it takes big brass ones to obey God. To obey God when it seems like there’s no way, when He tells you to do something that’s bigger than you, when He asks you to walk a path that is dicey and treacherous. That when it takes guts.

Recently as I’ve been on this kind of path, the Holy Spirit has often directed me to verses like Psalm 56:11, In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? And Psalm 118:6, The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? And Hebrews 13:6 . . . The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

God is like a big old German Shepherd that’s walking right beside me, ready to protect me. And when the problems come, and they definitely come, He’s right there to help me through them.

The bottom line is, I’ve GOT to obey God. I just don’t see any other way. I walk the path He asks me to walk. I want Him to find me trustworthy, I want Him to say that’s my Juli, I can trust her to do what I ask. She trusts me to take care of her. He wants you to trust Him to take care of you too.
