Made for Great Adventure

His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms."
Ephesians 3:10

You and I were made for a great adventure — it’s why we like movies.
Movies have a story to them, an adventure to follow through.
It’s also why we like shows like “Star Trek.”
We want to “boldly go where no man has gone before.”
That’s no accident. God made us to long for adventure — his adventure.
God calls all believers to join him in a rescue mission, “to seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10) and complete the Great Commission.
Not only has God created us for this mission; he also wants us to go on the adventure together.
God’s agent for completing his mission is the Church. Churches start churches. The Bible says, “[God’s] intent was that through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known …” (Ephesians 3:10).
God has chosen the Church — not governments or businesses — to be his agent to complete the mission.
These are great days to be alive. We’re living in a generation when the Great Commission can be completed in our lifetime.
When Jesus gave the Great Commission, it was physically impossible for his disciples to complete.
 In those days, when Jesus said to go into all the earth, there were only two ways to go anywhere: on foot or a donkey.
Today we have dozens of kinds of transportation. We also have the Internet. You can talk to someone in a faraway tribe and still be sitting in your pajamas at home. It’s never been more possible to see the Great Commission completed.
Of all the people in the world, you’re reading this devotional. Why? God wants to use you. Think you’re too ordinary? You are the one God wants to use.
Every church in the world has been started by average, everyday people like you and me.
Our generation can complete what God started 2,000 years ago when he gave the Great Commission.
Being a part of that would be the greatest privilege of our lives.

We were made for adventure
We were made for His adventure
and to know that He created us for adventure makes my heart leap
Something inside my soul gets excited and full of joy
I dont know what adventure He has called me on
but I know I want to be a part of His great commission
I want to help spread His word, His glory
His love, His goodness, His grace across His world to His children
we are called
we are His chosen agents

More than ever I have the desire to say YES
yes I will follow
yes I will let go
yes I will trust you
yes I will GO
I took these pictures at my parents house this morning
I can get lost in a beautiful sunrise
I start to daydream about the future
what He has in store for me

I have been told if you make a wish at this time it will come true
oh the dreamer in me
Just like it says in Timothy, God didnt make us to be timid or fearful but a spirit of power, love and sefl-control
So 11:11 instead of making a wish I prayed for my dreams
I prayed boldy- not feafully or timid
I prayed for the Lord to open up my His life of adventure
I prayed for my dreams, my desires and my longings
I dont know what my future holds, but I know who holds it
and that, my friend, brings much joy these days

Adventure awaits...
