—Luke 9:23-27, 57-62
by: Trisha Gerstel.
Most of us have no problem following the Lord’s direction…as long as we like the outcome. Attending church regularly, being part of a Bible Study Group, tithing— all of these are “doable” because they do not affect the status quo. But what happens when we are called to do something “uncomfortable,” such as leaving a high-paying job or walking against the crowd? Thankfully, the Lord will give us strength and wisdom during these times if we pray and open our hearts to His leading. When we do this, God will free us from the fear and fill us with peace.
