The Empty Stage

“I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;                                                                                        I will glorify Your name forever.” – Psalm 86:12

 

If you could do anything in this life, beyond what you think is “possible”, what would it be?

I used to answer that question with, “Become a famous music artist, travel, and play shows.” That was literally all I wanted to do.

The thrill of the stage, the lights, and the pounding of the music. Having people in the crowd below you shouting your lyrics and being moved by what you created. It’s adrenaline-inducing and addicting. To be known as your music and identified with your ability and praised for it.

And then, life shifts that perspective.

In the grand scheme of things, music will always be a part of who I am. But it’s not my identity. I needed to learn that when I faced my surgery and recovering in the months after. That need to be known as my ability was washed away, replaced with a new identity — my worth in Christ.

Bold Humility

“Caleb asked her, “What can I do for you?” She replied, “Do me a special favor. Since you have given me land in the Negev, give me also springs of water.” So Caleb gave her the upper and lower springs.” – Judges 1:14-15

There’s a bold ask deep inside each and every heart.

It’s that desire you’ve been pondering, hoping against hope for, wondering if and how God will come through.

So, what holds us back from asking? You have not because you ask not…

Acsah had a bold ask. And she knew the only way she would know the answer was by boldly and courageously approaching her father with it. With respect and humility.

I love this tiny snippet of Hebrew history and a painting of God’s great love and favor toward His children. Mentioned twice in the Old Testament, this story is so important to our walk with God. You might glaze over the short paragraph in Joshua and Judges, but it deserves a second look.

Acsah (daughter of the famed man of God — and Joshua’s trusted friend — Caleb) saw a need and went to her father for the means to fill it. She needed streams of water in the desert lands she had been given. And she knew he loved her enough to listen and grant her request…and he gave her all that she asked and more.

Don’t we all long for streams of blessing in the seemingly desert areas of our lives?

Yes, God already knows what we need. He knows before we even think of it. But He’s a good Father who loves His children so much that He wants us to come to Him with our needs and desires. He wants to hear our voice. He longs to draw near and show us His goodness in the desert.

I have “desert” places in my life that I am lifting to the Lord daily. We all have them. We have been blessed beyond measure as it is — our lives are rich with goodness and faithfulness of God — but, like Acsah, we have that need…“Lord, do me a special favor…”

Today, I’m challenging you to be humbly bold. To ask God for that special favor and see what He does with your courageous dream. He is ABLE. He will never fail you. If what you’re asking is in His will for your life, then you can be sure that He WILL do it.

And how can you know that it’s His will? Through the Holy Spirit. Through spending time in the Word and in prayer. When you hear His voice and have that assurance and peace…you know.

So learn from Acsah. Prepare for more than you can ask or imagine. Because He who calls you is more than capable of doing immeasurably more.
