As we seek the so much more of God and our identity and purpose, He promises to deliver all that we need to soar as who He created us to be doing what He created us to do. . It doesn’t always mean it will be easy.
When God changes lives, He disrupts lives.
Whenever I speak to a group I ask that the Lord bring life changing truths for those in attendance. Last week, as I prepared for Soaring With God to New Destinations He whispered to me that the group was hungry and willing to have their lives disrupted. I admit it was the first time that I had put the two ideas together. But let’s consider:
If you want to go deeper with the Lord, you must be willing to disrupt the status quo of your relationship with Him. You may have to implement new habits with your quiet time or step out of your comfort zone to speak to someone new. Life disrupted.
If you want to grow the sphere of influence God has entrusted to you, you may have to do the work of writing an email, a post, or text when your energy is spent from yesterday’s work. Life disrupted.
If you wish to update your skills, you may have to learn technology in a way you have never done before. Life disrupted.
God asks us to take the risk of disrupting our lives in order for Him to take us where He wants us to go.
The disciples James and John, not only had their professional lives disrupted, they had their personal lives disrupted when Jesus called them to follow Him,
“Going on from there He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and He called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him. Matthew 4: 21–22
The good news is when God disrupts your life, He is right there holding your hand to encourage you. He also never asks you to do anything that you can’t handle.
My advice is submit to Him, allow Him to disrupt your life and you will soar higher, faster, and easier than ever before.
