Part of my day off has consisted of me planning out my next adventure.
I.e. where will it be, how much will it cost, and who will experience it with me? Those are usually the three things I’ll think of when making plans.
This may be cheesy, but I thought of how similar those questions are in relation to when God leads us to something new. First off, we often want to know where we’re going. Secondly, how much will it cost financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally? Often we’ll be led to something where God asks us to let go of security in order for him to have more room to move. And then we’re curious about who (or if anyone) will be joining us on our new adventure.
Sometimes we don’t always find the answers to these question quickly or easily. But there is one thing I know for sure, and that is that God has provided, and continues to provide time and time again. 1. If he’s speaking about new direction, he’ll definitely lead us there. 2. Whatever we feel as costly, we can rest in knowing that what he’s asking us to lay down will be worth building his kingdom for. 3. He never leaves us alone.
As I’m sitting here in my room, I can’t help but be thankful for where he’s led me, and what he continues to speak about. He’s constantly teaching something new, or opening my eyes to a new perspective. How great is he?!
