The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break Camp and advance into the hill country . . . go to all the neighboring peoples . . . ‘
–from Deut. 1:6-7 NIV
I have a feeling that some of us just need to GO today—as in move out and trust God. Go in obedience to Him ONLY.
Have you ever heard the saying, “When the going gets rough, the rough get going.” The idea is that winners face what is difficult by taking action.
The action believers are called to is to GO! Are you willing to GO? Going requires several actions on our part:
* We must choose to obey. Everything begins when I choose to say “yes” to God. I must love Him enough to be willing to go against my tendency toward laziness.
* We must break camp. We must be willing to step out of our comfort zones—intentionally.
* We must move out (by faith). We must DO something that demonstrates our seriousness.
Ask God to give you opportunities this week. Ask someone you know who cares about lost people to pray with you this week about this.Then watch God prove His love for the lost through you.
Could this be confirmation for you? Are you amazed? As though the Lord is speaking directly to you? Just make your decision, trusting that you CAN depend fully upon His love–even if you make a mistake.
What a thrill awaits you as God lets you share His love with others. The Lord bless us all as we watch the great things God will do in our midst as we reach out beyond our current boundaries.
