In my Encouragement for Today devotion today I admitted what we not suppose to admit … at least not on social media!
My relationship with God can get boring.
Whose fault is that?
For sure not God’s!
What’s a gal to do when the predictable life she leads day in and day out bleeds over into our relationship with Jesus and isnt’ what God calls us to; a “more and better life than they ever dreamed of”? John 10:10 (MSG)
How do we get that life – the one that is more and better than we ever dreamed of?
To have an adventurous life, we have to step into His adventure!We need to ask God to make us brave and empower us to do what we cannot do on our own.
Once we sense His leading, we take a leap! We jump off the edge of complacency and comfort and do the exact thing, that God honoring thing, that makes our heart race, our stomach flutter and our head spin just a little bit.
We connect with a ministry going into the strip clubs in our city.
We invite over for dinner the gal at work that is nothing like us.
We connect with some teen girls, who we don’t understand, but want to make a difference with.
We go for it.
You know that picture you’ve had in your head? Yeah – that one. The one of you doing what you think you can’t do? The one ting you feel you are unqualified or unequipped for?
That may very well be the thing God is calling you to do. The thing you are incapable of doing unless He does it through you!
Ephesians 3:20 backs me up on this: “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” (MSG)
What are you waiting for?
Ask God to give you His power, His bravery and point you to the door. (Just be careful – it might be a door out an airplane!)
Do you know of a girl you needs a push to begin her adventure with God?
Magnetic: Becoming the Girl He Wants, His Revolutionary Love and Devotions for a Revolutionary Year can be the resource she needs!
You could get a head start on your Christmas list for that young girl in your life who needs so much to be brave!
