Forbidden Words: Try

Filed under: Uncategorized — ccassello @ 3:18 pm

I’ll try is the most dangerous word I was using too often in my vocabulary. I would tell God I was going to try to do something, I really did not want to do and make a poor attempt at it. Then I would apologize and tell God I tried. God showed me that it was an excuse I was makng for failing and told me that word is forbidden. Because we:

T hink wordly thoughts

Rationalize them

Yield to them

That fulfills our fleshly desires. God wants us to say, I will, not I’ll try. Philippians 2:13 “For it is God which worketh in you to both will and to do of His good pleasure.”

So, God wants us to say: I understand, not I feel; I trust, not I guess; I believe, not I hope; I know, not I think; yes or no, not maybe; and above all I will, not I’ll try.
