The Voice of Adventure

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
~Psalm 27:1

Jesus says the options are clear.  On one side there is the voice of safety.  You can build a fire in the hearth, stay inside, and stay warm and dry for what you don't try, right?  You can't fall if you don't take a stand, right?  You can't lose your balance if you never climb, right?  So don't try it.  Take the safe route.

Or you can hear the voice of adventure- God's adventure.  Instead of building a fire in your hearth, build a fire in your heart.  Follow God's implulses.  Adopt the child.  Move overseas.  Teach the class.  Change careers.  Run for office.  Make a difference.  Sure it isn't safe, but what is?

~From Grace for the Moment, by Max Lucado


  1. Have you been listening to my thoughts lately? I was rolling these very ideas around in my head this weekend. Thanks for sharing the encouragement!

  2. This one "happened" to be my devotional on the very day that I was questioning whether I'd made the right choice to quit my job and sacrifice income, insurance, and security. Funny how God works, isn't it?!?

  3. Thanks for this reminder. I needed it.


What's on your mind?
