Day 36: Going “Off the Grid” (Feb 5)

When I began this devotional journey with the Lord He spoke to me, “You are breaking off from the pack”.  Meaning, I was separating myself, at His instruction, to do something that I had no grid for.  Of course there are others who have written devotionals, but I don’t know them, and this process of publicly releasing these one week at a time is unusual, so it is basically only Him and me.

I have “gone off the grid”, so to speak.  I have never walked this walk before and have no leading except for Him.  I have had to put full trust in hearing His voice.  I have to trust that I will continue to daily hear Him.  It’s a terrifyingly wonderful thing to do!

It also reminds me that we all have our own walk in this world.  God has called each of us to a uniquely designed walk through life with Him.  He’s only looking for willing partners.  For years, I was so overwhelmed at the thought of writing, and scared of being rejected or misunderstood by others that I shrunk away.  I hid.  But I have come out of hiding, and it’s because I have experienced the love and affirmation of my Heavenly Father.

Are you called to be a pioneer in some area, but are afraid to blaze a trail? Or are you called to join an existing program, but have been too self-conscious and scared to do so?  Whatever it is that you have been resisting, don’t you think it’s time to move forward?

It’s time to step out and explore the life that God has called you into.  Are you ready to live “off the grid”?

I challenge you today to spend some quiet time in the secret place and ask God to show you if there is a place He has called you to, but you’ve been fighting against it.  Let Him gently scrape over your heart and mind and clear away any feelings of doubt or insignificance you may be feeling so you can begin to walk in His power and His truth.  He who began the good work in you will complete it.  I release blessings over you and your calling in this life. In Jesus name, Amen.

See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.  Isaiah 43:19

Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.  Proverbs 3:6

And He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
