Default Do What You Can Do

Do What You Can Do

And there was a man called Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector, and [he was] rich. And he was trying to see Jesus, which One He was, but he could not on account of the crowd, because he was small in stature. óLuke 19:2-3

You canít add anything to your life by worrying. I enjoy people who donít worry but are confident and really know who they are in Christ. That is why Zacchaeus is one of my favorite people in the Bible (see Luke 19).

Jesus was coming to town, and Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus, but he was so short he couldnít see over all the people in the huge crowd. I love what he did. He didnít go sit down and have a pity party. Instead, he ran up ahead and climbed up in a sycamore tree. When Jesus came by He said, ďZacchaeus, come on down here. Iím going to your house for dinner!Ē

Instead of whining about what he thought was a problem in his life, Zacchaeus had a positive attitude about it. Instead of worrying about what he couldnít do, he found something he could do. And God so loved that spirit of determination that He said, ďOf all these people, I am going to go home with you!Ē

Stop worrying about what you canít do. Stop comparing yourself to everybody else and wishing you were them and being jealous and envious of them. Whatever your inabilities are, say to them, ďIt is what it is. And Iím going to deal with it. Whatever I donít have, God is going to make it up to me in another way.Ē

I like to talk; I am a good communicator and it is working out really well. Iíve got a lot of good common sense and some business sense and Iím good at managing people, but mainly I talk. I encourage you to start using the abilities that you do have, and donít be concerned about the ones you donít have.

Trust in Him: If youíve already wasted much of your life worrying or comparing or complaining, make a decision today that you are going to trust God instead. Do what you can do and trust Him to do the rest.

From the book Trusting God Day by Day by Joyce Meyer.

God says that each of us is worth loving.
