159- Are You Willing to do Some Bold Things?
October 5, 1985
Saturday night Dan had been awakened by Daniel, but rather than being groggy, he found himself alert and interested in talking to God, and he said, “I really want to serve You and be fruitful in what I do for You. But I don’t want to move. Can we stay here for 5 years?”
He remembered back to Bible School in Germany when we were first married, saying to God, “I want to be in construction” – that’s where his heart was then.
Recently Gramma offered to loan him chunk of money so that he could build another house and he had picked up the forms to apply for his contractor’s license. He could envision designing and building a home.
Tonight he felt God said, “Are you willing to do some bold things? Are you willing to move out of this house?”
Those questions jolted Dan out of his comfort place.
The next day the Pastor’s sermon included some of the things God had been speaking to Dan.
I thought it was interesting when I read in my Streams in the Desert devotional for today: “It is safe to trust God’s methods and go by His clock.”
Pastor Dave talked to Dan about the Suburban Dan has his eye on.
What do You have for us, Father? We are ready for Your call, ready to say yes to whatever You offer. I feel something is in the offing. We have been bold before. Your part is to supply the direction and the grace, our part is to say yes and start moving. We are listening!
