“Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” (Matthew 4:20)
They did not hesitate. “Immediately,” they moved at the call. Something in them whispered to their deepest desires, “This is it. Now’s the time. This is what we’ve been waiting for.” So…they willingly left everything they knew!
Do you feel the same kind of draw within you?
True callings and dreams always demand a shift in our present reality. They tell us that our current lifestyle cannot contain all that God wants to release. Even now, something in you says, “I was made for more.” Like the disciples, this call of Jesus has little to do with income or prestige, but the simple joy of becoming what God ordained from the beginning.
At the start of His ministry, Jesus called to His disciples from a physical body; but today, He calls from His Spirit within us. It’s a voice deeply reverberating within your soul. Every day He hopes that you will believe Him, that you will follow Him into a greater fulfillment of His plans for you. He wired it into you from the beginning. He died for it. And now, His Spirit is jealous for the deposit that’s within you.
Let His voice draw you…woo you…and convince you that the risk is worth it. You may not think highly of yourself, and that’s OK; what matters most is what God thinks about you. For Him, He has already decided you were worth dying for. All you have to do is believe and follow.
