It Happens To the Best of Us.
And the worst of us for that matter. We’re just sitting there, minding our own business, letting the world pass us by. Then suddenly, God calls.
At first we try to ignore it, pretending that it’s our mind wandering or some random thought queued by something that just happened. But then we get the sinking feeling that the Holy Spirit might just be trying to get our attention.
The nervous, excitement starts to roll in. Events in the past start to become more clear than ever. You realize God’s last year of planning is unveiled.
The people we’ve met, the places we’ve gone, the things we’ve done; they all make so much sense now! All of a sudden, life has so much more meaning.
It’s absolutely terrifying!
This has been the experience of many who have received a specific call from God. It might be through His word or a prayer. Sometimes through a sermon, a song or a poem. Regardless of where it comes from, it’s unmistakable to the person receiving it.
Only their own denial can mask it, but even then it comes back to haunt them.
The best remedy for this type of situation is to run! No, I didn’t say run away, I said run! Run towards that call with everything that is inside you. Embrace the call that God has placed on your heart.
Then, get ready for one of the greatest adventures that you’ve ever imagined. Specifically designed and prepared ahead of time, for you.
