The other day I had the pleasure of serving cupcakes to 16 kindergarteners as we celebrated my daughter Aaliyah’s 5th birthday. After the festivities had died down the teacher asked Aaliyah what she would like to be when she grows up.
I knew the answer and I sensed it wouldn’t go over very well.
Some of the kids laughed–Aaliyah looked at them puzzled–then the teacher quickly interjected, “and what else?”
And what else. Why does there need to be a something else?
Okay, sure, growing up to be a princess sounds pretty farfetched, but for Aaliyah that is her reality. And for reasons unknown to us she acts like a princess; she is ultra feminine. She insists on wearing skirts every day, she loves wearing lip gloss and nail polish, and she carries herself like a lady.
For the last week or so we’ve declared that Enough is Enough! But ask yourself: Are you acting like Enough is Enough or are you going on with business as usual? If the latter, your belief in what God says He will do, may be weak.
As we heard today on the Morning Prayer Call unbelief plaques most Christians at one time or another. Sure, we all believe that God exists, but at times it’s hard to believe that He will do as He has spoken.
But the word reminds us, “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19).
Of course not! Every promise of the Lord comes to pass. Therefore act like you believe God. Stop complaining, whining, and worrying. Take action as He directs and do whatever He says to do.
Two years ago was the first time Aaliyah announced that she would grow up to be a princess. Both her older brother AJ and myself laughed, but something in my spirit felt uneasy. So now I don’t laugh.
Some of you are doubting what God has told you because others are laughing and they are insisting that you change your mind. But either you are going to believe God or please man, the choice is yours.
But if Enough is really Enough I believe you are going to chose to believe God. He can be trusted!
And as for me and my house, we choose to believe Aaliyah is going to grow up to be a princess :).
With God all things are possible,
