Out on a Limb
If you serve me, you must go with me. —John 12:26 CEV
Be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Take a risk and go out on a limb with Me. If that is where I am leading you, then out on that limb is the safest place for you to be.
You want to play it safe, avoid all the risks you can. But taking risks is part of living close to Me. Trying to live a risk-free life tells Me that you don’t really trust Me. You have to make a choice: Will you keep trying to be safe at all costs? Or will you follow Me with all your heart?
I may ask you to stand up for someone who can’t stand up for himself, to say no to a friend, or to tell a stranger about Me. But I’ll give you the strength and the courage to do it.
Life with Me is an adventure. If you stick with Me, you’ll not only have My protection, but you’ll learn to relax and enjoy the adventure. So be willing to follow wherever I lead—even out on a limb.
