It is a common fear to believe that if you listen to God, he might make you do things against your will. This kind of fear or uneasiness is all caused by misunderstanding. You see, God already knows all about you, your strengths and weaknesses, your temperament, your personality . . . your everything! After all, he created you. So he will never want you to handle anything beyond your capability or readiness, for he knows what best suits you. Normally, he teaches you, nurtures you, and in time shows you the way to serve him. It can be a pleasant surprise, not what you would have expected, but he knows now you are ready. Therefore, trust in him always without fear!
