Deuteronomy 1:6-7 The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites; go to all the neighboring peoples in the foothills, in the Negev and along the coast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon as far as the great river, the Euphrates.”
Sixteen years ago, we packed up our family and moved from the comfort of our childhood hometown to a new town in a new state. Because of that move, I have grown in ways I never would have grown had we stayed in the familiar surroundings of Wisconsin. My faith was stretched to become bigger than my fears. The church became my home and the members became family.
God has been urging people to move for centuries, even as far back as the Old Testament. It seems that just when life becomes comfortable, we are pushed in a new direction.
May you find strength to move with God into the next new land in your life. Living for God is an adventure with new opportunities around every corner. Enjoy the life you have been given!
