doing something big for God

I’ve been sitting with the question of: “what does it mean to do something big for God?” What does it mean to follow the steps He is leading?

I am surrounded by friends who have or are taking massive steps of faith in their lives. They have gone to Africa or China to adopt children. They are moving to South America to do missions work. They are buying someone’s house and moving out of theirs because it’s where God clearly led them. Being surrounded in that way makes me think that in order for me to do something “big” for God means it has to be BIG. But tests of faith can come in so many other ways and I so easily lose sight of that.

Tests of faith can come with looming surgery and health issues.
Tests of faith can come with saying goodbye to a past career and trusting God to provide our means.
Tests of faith can come with taking the risk to start a business that I know God is leading me to start.

It’s not about big.

It’s about focus. It’s about looking to the Light and trusting in Him to lead.

Learning to pray and live moment by moment and moving in the steps that He has led me.

The unfolding of your words gives light;
    it gives understanding to the simple.
131 I open my mouth and pant,
    longing for your commands.
132 Turn to me and have mercy on me,
    as you always do to those who love your name.
133 Direct my footsteps according to your word;
    let no sin rule over me.

~Psalm 119: 129-133
