B Moments, risk

This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Psalm 27:1 (ESV)

Transcription:

Today I am asking a question: Are you willing to risk what you already have for something more?

Personally, I’ve been at this place before; I’ve had the opportunity to leave the comforts of what I had for something more. Yet I couldn’t make the leap at that time. I got to the brink, but I lacked the inner strength to get to the other side. When I think back about what could have been holding me back, I think it was the risk of losing the safety of what I already had. Sometimes, that means existing relationships.

When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about Gideon’s story. Gideon was chosen by God to defeat the Midianites, an army that significantly outnumbered Gideon and his men. Although Gideon would be victorious over the Midianites, his truest battle was taking on his God-given assignment among those who knew him best—among those who would be the first to judge him.

Gideon was already locked into a way of being with his family members and the other tribes. He played a small, non-threatening role, and in turn, they loved him as “Little Gideon.” Yet God had something more for him. In the end, Gideon chose to leave the safety of what he already had for more.

Now I ask you, are you willing to do the same? As today is the first day of the Lent season, see this question as an invitation to the more that God has for you. As you receive that, cling to these words: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?” Psalm 27:1 (ESV)

Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.

So today, leap for your miracle and never look back.
