Listen as God calls you out and toward new adventures in each new day you’re given.
Jesus simple invite was: “Follow Me”
The joy and adventure of life is found in following after God and walking with him…as he leads. Each day can become predictable, routine and mundane if we allow it. If we choose an inward viewpoint. Or, if we live life from God’s vantage point, it can be way more. The Scriptures declare that God’s mercies meet us new every morning. (see Lam. 3)
They’re not recycled, reused, reprocessed, or hand-me-downs. His mercies are NEW.
So is his invitation to “follow me.”
Each day NEW adventures await. NEW opportunities to partner with him in this world to bring a little bit more of Heaven down. He’s got NEXT steps for you to take in your faith journey. He’s got NEW assignments that will cross your path. He’s got NEW surprises of his care and grace for you to discover. He’s got NEW projects to accomplish for him and NEW people to love in fresh ways.
“I don’t at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.” -Anne Lamott
God is constantly calling us to take a next step with Him – and it’s not complicated. Sometimes we make it too complicated…
Listen to the God who calls you! He’s constantly calling.
The Truth is: we will spend our time LISTENING to someone.
Either ourselves, others or Our Creator. The choice is ours to make. God loves you, he desires and dreams the best for you and wants you to follow him.
Don’t let “selective hearing” infiltrate and distract you from attentiveness to what God might be calling you toward…
Jesus said it like this in John 10 – “I’m the Good Shepherd”
The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” -John 10:2-5
The call to “follow” our Good Shepherd is all throughout the Scriptures. He calls to you this day. Do you hear His voice?
Will you choose to follow?
Q) what might God be calling you toward?
