Adrenaline Rush

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)
People were made for adventure. There's a part in each of us that longs for excitement, something different, something more. And yet people seem to have gotten the odd idea in their heads that being a Christian is boring — should be staid, calm, regular. I would venture to say that nothing could be farther from the truth! To live in relationship with the Creator is to live an adventurous life. But it requires us to move out of our comfort zones — only then will we experience God in a new way.  

One day I was travelling by train from Glasgow to Paisley, Scotland. As I sat waiting for the train to leave, a man sat down across the aisle. God immediately gave me a very specific message for him. I was stunned — how could I approach a stranger with such a personal message? Just then, a second man ran onto the train. God gave me a message for him as well. I was glad no one else got on as the train began to move. Before I'd gotten up the courage to say anything, the second man dashed off the train at the next stop; I sent a prayer after him, and determined not to miss my other chance. When we got off the train, I gave the first man his message. It led to an hour's discussion about God and the plan of salvation. Wow. We have adrenaline for a reason!  

What does God have to say to the person you see at work every day? He might use you to change their lives, and in the process you'll see yourself changed as well.  

Lord, I call to you: show me unsearchable things, and lead me into the adventure you have for me. Open my eyes and ears to see what you want, and hear what you want to reveal to me. Amen.
