You ears shall hear a word behind you saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
“What an exciting life you have.” “How do you handle moving every few months?” “Don’t you miss having a permanent home?” These are a few questions I am asked at every town I serve in. The answer to each question is: Yes. However, I’m choosing to be obedient to God. I believe that I was prepared to be a traveler. I agreed to walk where He led. Now I serve in this way as a direct opportunity to share my love of God and plant seeds of hope in weary souls while healing their bodies. And, yes, it’s an adventure.
God intended our walk of faith to be a thrilling adventure, motivated by our love for Jesus. When we place our trust in the Lord and act on His prompting, life becomes exciting. We shouldn’t be afraid of the future because God has a plan for us and knows the outcome of our obedience. We can trust the He does everything for our good. Even when it means packing up your home and walking away. I trust there is going to be a time that He is preparing for me to have a more traditional home. Right now He needs me to do this.
Walking in faith is so thrilling because each step leads to another blessing from God. The Lord continuously moves us through a variety of circumstances toward His purpose for our lives. He’s preparing us for His plan. This awareness will lead to a lifestyle of walking with the Lord and receiving His best for us.
In the coming weeks I’m going to re-examine some of my adventures from this perspective. Where is your next step going to take you? Will you face it with a sense of trusting obedience?
