God-Sized Assignments

Several years ago, I worked through Henry Blackaby's study Experiencing God. I've been thinking about that study a lot lately. The overall theme was that God is always working in and around us. Instead of us coming up with a plan and asking God to bless it, we should find out what He is doing and join Him.

It is rather disconcerting when we realize that it's not all about us. I mean, as Christians, we know that...intellectually...but it is so easy to get caught up in our day-to-day "stuff" and lose sight of the big picture...kind of like not being able to see the forest for the trees. Not that we will every really know the big picture...only the Lord knows that. The best we can do is to seek Him and ask for His wisdom and guidance in all that we do.

We all know about super-sized...from drinks to fries...but the assignments that He has for us are God-sized. I don't think we are really living our lives in faith unless we are attempting to do something that we humanly cannot do on our own...something that if God doesn't show up, we will fail miserably. How exciting to be invited to join Him on an adventure! How incredibly scary as well.

Where is it that you sense God calling you to step out of the boat? Leave a comment and share your stories...we would love to join you in prayer for your adventure.
