Be A Risk Taker For The Kingdom

Can you imagine what God could do with our lives if we were willing to put everything on the line, step totally out of our comfort zone and do whatever God called us to do? Wow! It blows my mind to think about the possibilities in my own life.

Why do we tend to hesitate when God calls us to a task which often times appears impossible to the human mind? Why do we question Him as to our ability to answer a call He has placed upon our lives? Do we lack faith? Are we questioning the voice we hear? Do we think God doesn't have what it takes to care for us as we enter unknown territory? Are we too mature and steadfast in our ways to allow God to use us in a new work for the Kingdom? Do we question why or how God could use us to further His Kingdom? Do we think that God doesn't use people over 50? NOT!

GOD EQUIPS THE CALLED. That statement says it all. If God calls you to do something He will give you everything you need to complete the task. EVERYTHING! Amazing isn't it? All we have to do as Christians is to be willing to accept the challenge and allow God to do the rest. That's it! No strings attached. Just demonstrate your faith in Christ by being obedient to the call He places upon your life. No matter how old or young you may be. It doesn't matter.

God uses all kinds of folks to complete His work. The Bible is full of examples where God continually used ordinary people to do extraordinary things. He has a work for each of us. There is no retirement when God is your employer.

I feel such an urgency in my own spirit to seek God for clear direction in my life. Time is short and there is a tremendous task at hand to tell people about Jesus. Do not allow fear and the voice of the enemy to hinder God's call on your life. He is looking for willing vessels who are anxious to step out of the comfort zone and take a risk for the Kingdom. Yes, it can be frightening to accept the challenge of God in blind faith, attempting to do something that you have no idea how to do.
But God will be with you every step of the way.

I encourage you to be diligent and obedient in your walk with Christ. Serving Him is an exciting adventure. It becomes boring and unfruitful when we demand control of our lives and refuse to listen and obey His call. I challenge you today to be a risk taker for the Kingdom. God has big plans for your life. What are you going to do with it?
