Overwhelmed

I hope you are in on it.

What is “it,” you ask?

“It” is what God is doing.

He’s up to something.

Something good.

He is calling His people to draw near to Him and hear His voice.

He is stirring up His people to step out in faith and follow His leading.

Even when it is scary.

Even when there are questions about what, when, where and how, because we already know the why.

The why is simple. We love God and we love people.

That is the underlying reason for everything we do.

That has to be the underlying reason.

And as I talk to people, I see that underlying reason in everything they do.

The thing is, when that is the foundation of your action, you can’t help but be overwhelmed with this love that is flowing out of you, and you can’t help but follow where the Lord leads.

There are times that the prospect of where we are heading may feel overwhelming, but really it’s not because God’s the one working it out, we are just partnering with Him as He works.

I hope you are in on it.

Overwhelming as it is.

Let’s run!

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Italics mine.)
