Do you have the courage to be first?


Sometimes God calls us into new territory. In fact, there is no growth without new territory. If we stay where we’ve been, back in our comfort zone, we don’t move forward.

Most people are waiting around for someone else to go first. But that’s not you. You are a son or daughter of the Most High God. You are a leader by definition. You open new territory with God. It’s built into your DNA.

Your bags are packed; you’re ready to deploy. Not literally necessarily, but spiritually. Like Isaiah, we say to the Lord, “Here I am. Send me.”

Where will God send you? “To a land I will show you,” God said to Abraham. The journey into discovering God will take you all kinds of places you don’t expect to go, but in the end you will find yourself safely home.

Bible trivia:
Answer from last time: Hebrews 11 is called the faith chapter. (It’s a great chapter by the way—one of my favorites.)
New question: Which chapter of the Bible is called the “love chapter”?
