Crisis People

I go to a lot of Christian programs, events and functions and frequently someone stands up and says: “Take on a project that is so big it’s certain to fail unless God intervenes.”

What these people fail to add is that God presses us beyond anything we can imagine and usually only shows up way beyond the point we can handle. We say he’s never late but when we are all hung out there to dry or die alone it feels like he’s abandoned us. He’s the same God who made Sarah wait until she’d celebrated her 80th birthday before he allowed her to get pregnant.

My point in this is most people are crisis oriented when the temperature rises above 72 degrees and they panic. I see them all the time and they want me to bail them out. My name isn’t God. If you weren’t prepared to fail or to wait on him till you were 80 why did you start to begin with?

Just a minor complaint.
