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.

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!
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
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
