First Things First w/Christine Caine

No More “If Only”

  • If only I wasn’t divorced.
  • If only I was married.
  • If only I wasn’t hurt.
  • If only I wasn’t betrayed.
  • If only they hadn’t died.
  • If only I hadn’t lost my job.
  • If only I hadn’t failed.
  • If only I had a better start in life.

Is there something God has called you to do, but for one reason or another you’ve hesitated?

I want to encourage you today to drop your “if only” — that thing, that excuse, you might be holding onto as a reason not to step out in faith. And they can look different for every person:

Don’t let what someone else did or didn’t do define your life. Don’t get stuck in past pain, bitterness, offense, hurt, loss, failure, or even success.

Today, push past your “if only” and say “YES” to what God is calling you to do!

With God’s help we will do mighty things, for he will trample down our foes (Psalm 60:12, NLT).

How is the Holy Spirit prompting you to say “yes” today?

You can encourage others! Tag @christinecaine on social media and share what God is revealing to you.
