You Can’t Sit on the Fence Forever

There comes a time in each of our spiritual lives when the Lord brings to us His divine interruption that always comes with a choice. And that choice, other than obedience, seems to focus on our willingness to let Him move us into an area that we are totally unfamiliar with.  Or will we choose to remain where we feel safe and comfortable? The choice is to follow Him into the deep or remain in the kiddie pool holding fast to our water wings. And as always, the choice becomes a matter of faith, of trust.

After all, we sing songs about Him being a “good, good Father.” Do we really mean it? Or is that just for church?

The question or choice is simply this:

Are You In? Or Are You Out?

If you look at the major faith personalities in the Bible, you will find every one of them had to ask themselves the same question.  Every one of them faced a choice that comes with a set of troubling questions: “Do I continue in the course that seems right to me? Or do I trust I actually heard from the Lord and go in a direction totally unfamiliar to anything I’ve ever done or known? How much faith do I really have?”

We call these moments Divine Interruptions.

In this message, we’ll look at these interruptions from the vantage point of:

David

Paul

Mary

Matthew

James and John and Peter and Andrew

Moses

And finally, Hosea.

A Personal Note

And I will share with you the divine interruption I received this week while preparing for this message from Jude. In fact, in the weeks to follow, I will share more about the changes the Lord has brought in my life regarding what His will is for me and this ministry. And I rejoice in that. Why? Because He has simply answered a prayer I have prayed for almost two years in a most profound way.

But we’ll talk more about that at a later time.
