Once we’ve learned to hear God’s voice, there is a next logical step to take – acting on what He has revealed. The Bible is full of accounts of all sorts of different responses to God’s instructions, from Moses’ initial reluctance to the prophets’ obedience – even when the requests were exceedingly strange. One common thread runs throughout – God gives us the opportunity to be intimately involved in His story when we listen to His voice and follow His direction.
Questions for further thought:
1. We’ve all done it at times, but what keeps you from acting when you believe God is leading you to do something?
2. How do you personally discern God’s leading in a particular situation?
Challenge: Have you sensed that God is leading you to take on a new challenge, heal a relationship or make a move that has you hesitating? If there’s no contradiction with Scripture, this is your chance to take action. Step out and see what God will do.
