Just Imagine - Following God's Call

By: Shari A. Miller

"We never grow closer to God when we just live life. It takes deliberate pursuit and attentiveness." - Francis Chan

Food for thought:

What if we followed God with our whole heart, using our full potential, no matter the cost?

Just imagine the difference it would make in our lives, as well as the life of others.

"You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him." - Deuteronomy 13:4 (NIV)




Life can get so full...full of things to do, places to be, and people to meet. Everything from joyous occasions to trials can arise and cause us to lose focus of the voice that we can hear deep down within our souls.

Yet the Lord still says, "Follow me. Follow my call and walk along the path that I have called you to go."

Oh how often we may doubt that voice and choose to go our own way instead; because often times we realize that obedience to the voice comes with a cost, a cost that we may not be willing to pay.

"The bottom line in the Christian life is obedience and most people don't even like the word." - Charles Stanley

Are you ready to be different than most and obey God and follow His call?

Let's move forward friends, being deliberate, and intentional every step of the way, following in His footsteps as He leads us forward on a new journey that will mold and shape us into His image.

He's calling us friends to go forth and do great things for Him. To proclaim His name to a lost and dying world. He wants us to be different, to be bold, to be world changers for Him.

Today is a fresh start to begin anew and say, "yes" to the highest calling that we will find. Today is a day to do more than imagine, today is the day to obey, and march forward and watch something beautiful unfold.

Are you with me? Let's go.
