Welcome to "Saturday Stroll!"
In these posts I will be interacting with Scripture - making it a conversational walk of faith.
Sometimes we'll be talking with Jesus, and sometimes God will be talking with us.
There might even be *guest appearances* by some of our beloved characters from the Bible!
So put on your walking shoes - you know we can all use the exercise!
Sometimes God calls us to leave…
A comfortable emotional place, a complacent attitude in our faith, an easy background role – and sometimes a literal physical location.
And when God calls us to leave, He speaks…
It is time to leave your native country, your relatives, your friends, your comfort zone – and go into the land that I will show you.
But Lord, I am unfamiliar with this territory.
I'm not good with change.
I will make you great.
I will bless you, and you will be a blessing to others.
I want that, Lord.
But I'm scared.
Do not be afraid.
I have defeated your enemies for you.
I will protect you and your reward will be great.
So, where do I go from here?
Do as I tell you.
I will be with you and bless you.
Thank You, Lord.
Now, I hereby confirm that I will give all these new lands to you.
And I do not break My promises.
You stand on Your name – the LORD.
I am the LORD, the God of Abraham, and Isaac.
I am giving this new territory to you.
It's still scary.
But you will not walk a step without Me.
And I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.
Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn't even aware of it.
Where He leads, I will follow.
And when you follow, I will make the way clear.
I trust You, Lord.
What an awesome place this is!
It is none other than the place where God is.
Yes, and I will accompany you into uncharted waters and unfamiliar places.
God will indeed be with me and protect me on this journey.
I will present to God everything He gives me.
I am ready, Lord…
