Stepping Stones: Glorious Adventure

Stepping Stones: Glorious Adventure
September 10, 2009 Lighthouse Network

Transformational Tip
An adventure is defined as an exciting, extraordinary event. The greatest adventure possible is knowing God superabundantly…by discovering how wide, and long and high His love is for you. The power of God’s vast love for you can be overwhelming – maybe that’s why so many people choose to limit their knowledge of Him…keeping Him at a safe distance. So many of us settle for mediocrity simple because it feels comfortable, safe. Those settling for mediocrity are destined to battle fear – for only His love is strong enough to break the hold that fear has on you. A predictable lifestyle may feel safer, but that safety can shield you from what you need most – God’s love.
The next time an unexpected event disrupts your routine, rejoice. This is exactly what you need to wake you up and point you toward Him. Recognize that you are on the threshold of a new adventure, and that God will be with you every step of the way. Look forward to an exciting, extraordinary event.

Prayer
Dear Father God,
I long for the glorious adventure that a life abandoned to You can create. But I continue to grasp onto my old ways, my safe life. Help me realize Lord, that the safety I’ve been turning to is really destruction. You are my real safety. I pray Lord that You help me break free and discover the adventures You have planned for me. Instead of striving for a predictable, safe lifestyle, help me seek to know You in greater depth and breadth. I pray this in Jesus’ name, the wildest adventurer of all time, and all God’s people said – AMEN!

The Truth
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ
Ephesians 3:17-18
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”—
1 Corinthians 2:9

    It's true that the power of God's love for me is overwhelming. I want to give up resisting it, looking for reasons it might not apply to me. It's also true that settling for mediocrity means battling fear. I will meditate on God's love this morning.

    thanking God for an traumatic unexpected event that happened in January and the transformation hasn't stopped – it's slow, painful – and I want to settle back in to comfort land but I am trying to stay focused on God using the event to knock me out of complacency and accept his guidance for growth.

    I am learning to ask myself this question everytime something unexpected happens in my life: "What is God doing here? What is he trying to teach me?" Then all of a sudden the unexpected event becomes an adventure.

    Thanks for this devotional! It helped me change my mind on a trip that was disturbing my routine.
    But I decided to go on the trip and now I am glad I did! I decided to let God guide me and be with me while I was travelling.
