Will You Go?

I don't know about you, but growing up, I always heard "Trust God." It was something that was often said. It wasn't until recently when I realized the weight of that statement. Trusting God doesn't mean just saying it. Trusting God means actually showing that you trust Him through your actions. I recently left what was comfortable and financially stable to pursue what God has clearly placed in my heart... Ministry. It doesn't make sense and it is uncertain, but there is something beautiful in the uncertainty. Growth. I would rather please God in my "uncomfortable" than miss out in my "comfortable." It may not look logical in your own mind, and it may not be make sense to others, but it doesn't have to. When you take a step back and realize exactly why you are here, it isn't to make all the money in the world. It isn't to please people. It isn't to be comfortable all the time. It is to go out and make disciples like Jesus says to do. (Matthew 28:18-20. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.") That will look different for everyone. Maybe it's at your job, your home, or the grocery store. What does that look like for you?

I go back to the story in the bible where Jesus is asking his disciples to follow Him. That meant leaving behind what they always knew and follow Jesus. If you look at Matthew. He was a tax collector working for the Romans. He was comfortable and stable in his finances, yet when Jesus asked Matthew to follow Him, he did. He didn't hesitate. He just went. He didn't care what he was leaving behind, and he didn't care what people thought. He just knew he had to follow Jesus. From there, he would learn more than he ever would have if he had stayed in the tax collector booth.


(Matthew 9:9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.)


So will you go? Will you follow Jesus? Will you trust that when He calls you out into the uncomfortable, that He won't let you down. It may feel scary and uncertain, but what if the thing you are afraid to leave is the very thing holding you back from the bigger picture that God wants to show you? It may not make sense, but when do things ever really make sense until after? When you step across the line of "uncomfortable", God will reveal the rest. It may be over a course of days, months, or years, but God will show you.


So go. Follow Jesus. Learn.
