“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?” Psalm 27:1
Jesus tells us that the options, though only two, are very clear. On one side there is the voice of safety. You can build a fire in the hearth, stay inside, 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, 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 impulses, His leadings. Step out of the cocoon, out of the warmth of the known, out of the ship, and walk toward the God who calls you to come forth. What will it mean? Hard to say on this side of tomorrow. But the one thing I can tell you is this, the thrills awaiting tomorrow will never be realized, until you stop trying to feed your soul on the manna from yesterday. What are you afraid of? Step out and go to Him.
