Are You Willing to Take a Risk?

Are you living a life of audacious faith?

Hold up what does audacious mean? Showing a willingness to take surprisingly bold risks.

YES!

 What does it mean to live life with boldness?

What does it mean to live a spirit-led life?

 

I am trying to answer these questions myself.

Last year I lived a life of audacity. I was listening to the Holy Spirit, going where he told me to go, saying what he told me to say, and that year was the best year of my life to date. It wasn’t easy. I would be lying to you if I told you it was easy. But it was so rewarding and worth every last challenge and struggle.

 

The world may look at you and think you are crazy if you live your life this way, but who cares?!? Is that what it’s all about?

NO.

It’s about living a life for Jesus. It’s about listening to him and no one else.

According to the world’s standards, I am not going anywhere fast in life. I currently don’t have a job (I’m doing odd jobs here and there), I’m living at my parents, they are providing me with money (thank you!), BUT according to God I am exactly where he wants me to be (I know, he told me). I am in a period of waiting, learning many lessons, one being obedience. God wants me to listen to his voice and no one else’s.

He is our good shepherd.

In John 10:4-5 Jesus talks about the good Shepherd (God) and his sheep (us),

When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.”

 

Do you know the voice of your shepherd?

 

I am God’s sheep and I am listening to his voice and doing what he says. When I do it causes me to step out in boldness saying things I don’t particularly want to say, being financially dependent on someone else (for the time being), being the first to apologize, biting my tongue when I want to say something, loving when it’s hard, and extending grace when it’s not easy. BUT with all of this there is nothing like experiencing the JOY OF THE LORD and HIS LOVE and being BLESSED by him in ways you cannot even fathom. For example, I absolutely love the ocean! And this week God has blessed me with a week of enjoying the ocean and getting paid to do it! He is a good, good Father. He loves me and when I am obedient, living in boldness, living audaciously, living a spirit-led life, he will bless me! It’s a good way to live! The heavenly Father knows you better than you know yourself and he will give you the desires of your heart if you do what he tells you to do!

 

“Live a life that can be explained only by the existence of a God who is infinitely great.” (Sun Stand Still, Steven Furtick)
