The Excuses Stop Here!

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever known someone who makes excuses about everything?  No matter what you ask them to do they always make up a reason not to do it.  Have you ever been surrounded by coworkers who want advancement but offer no service?  They always complain about the office but never offer solutions to the problems.  Have you ever been overlooked because of your outer appearance?  Since you did not fill the “description”, you were looked over.  Have you ever wanted to do something but talked yourself out of it?  You never saw it done before so fear causes you to change your mind.  Have you been there?  Are you there now?


This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, The Excuses Stop Here!  If you ever want to enjoy the blessings of God, you must learn to move beyond the excuses.  The Lord is aware of your mistakes, but He still desires to use you.  He knows your limitations, but He still desires to use you.  The Bible declares in Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.  When the Lord called you, He called you as you were.  The Excuses Stop Here!  The excuse that you are not ready to come must end today.  In spite of all you have done in your life, God has remained faithful toward you (Lamentations 3:23).  When you were in your sins, God remained in-love with you (Romans 5:8).  After all He has done for you, the least you could do is stop the excuses.  Stop creating reasons to avoid living for Him.  The Excuses Stop Here!


My brother, my sister, what reasons are you using to prevent yourself from serving the Lord?  What if God used the same excuse when it was time to answer your prayers?  The Excuses Stop Here!  The excuses you use prevent God from working mighty in your life.  Excuses place a wall between you and the Lord.  The Bible declares in Hebrews 12:1 - Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.  Beloved, the enemy desires for you to use excuses when it is time to praise and magnify the Lord.  The enemy will use anything to keep you from serving the Master … anything.  You must become determined to quench every excuse.  God deserves more.  The Excuses Stop Here!  Challenge for the Day: Make up in your mind that you will not allow anything nor anyone to stop you from living for the Lord.
