Monday Meditation: Are we willing to follow?

View of one of Mackinac Island's churches
Yesterday our church dedicated its new building. But really we dedicated ourselves to the on-going service of the Lord.

We had the opportunity to examine where we are, where we want to go, and the idea that this is only one more step toward a new beginning.

God is like that. Always moving to a new place. And asking us if we are willing to move with Him.

Are you ever tempted to tell Him no? Thank you very much, but you're quite comfortable where you are and what you're doing? That if where God moved you was good enough last year, five years ago, twenty years ago, then you are quite certain that this must be where He has you for the next twenty years?

Isn't that like us? To become comfortable and not want to step into what ever might be next? The road is foggy. We can't see five steps down the road let alone five years. So we decide to be safe.

I don't know about you, but I don't want safe. I want God. Where He goes, I want to follow. How about you?

I think it is very natural to want to be safe and secure. However, we have to learn (sometimes the hard way)that we will never be truly safe and secure if we are out of the will of God. I remember a missionary speaking at our church said she would much rather go into the unknown with God than stay in the known without him. I've kept that in mind through many years of moving from place to place and in different circumstances of life. We can be secure because we know God loves us.
