Thank goodness God has patience with us, gives us his grace and allows us time to work through what He is calling us to do. He doesn’t always expect us to turn around and make a split second knee jerk reaction and change everything in our life just because we heard Him speak. But He does want us to have a heart for Him that will allow Him to take us through that journey and to walk us through that path of obedience.
The consequences of not obeying the Lord’s call was that I became very distracted, uneasy, overwhelmed, and stressed, because I was trying to fill my life with all the things that I thought would please God. There is a vicious cycle of consequences when we deliberately disobey what God has called us to do.
God’s call is different for all of us. He may call us to share with our hands, our lips, or our hearts, but He will call us to use what He has brought us through in our life to minister to others. He will call us to use how He has comforted us to comfort others, and to allow our past to be a bridge to the purpose He has in store for us.

Week 3 Reflection Questions (based on last week’s readings)
Is it possible you’ve been listening to the wrong voice for far too long?
Ask yourself today, are you in a place that you are ready to say “Lord, whatever it is that You are calling me to do, I will do”?
Are you willing to continually ask God every day … show me how You can use what the devil meant for evil for Your glory because I want my life to serve as proof of the power of Jesus Christ.
What does it mean to you to know your life can serve as proof of the power of Jesus Christ? How does that inspire you today?
