It is quite an astonishing thing to watch the world around us coming to a slow halt. Yes, many are still going to work, but even the work is done in a very different way. I went to our church yesterday afternoon to record tonight’s Celebrate Recovery lesson so it could be uploaded onto our website. No CR has ever experienced what is happening today. It is all about meeting people face to face where genuine accountability takes place. We are encouraging everyone to reach out through our leadership with the share groups and step studies. I find myself needing a different kind of discipline to do this. Disciplining myself to reach out to individuals seems too much like going door to door with flyers about something I have to sell. I feel like an intruder. I confess this today because I know God is wanting me to step into an area of discomfort and reach out to individuals. I appreciate their calls, but I don’t like to be the one initiating them. Sounds silly, but it is me.
The Power of the Holy Spirit only comes when we act on the nudges of The Holy Spirit. I don’t want to be a disappointment in this area so in this time of disarray I want to be obedient in spite of my personal discomfort. Maybe I’ll learn something new from this. The miracles of God are awaiting. I’m going to step into obedience this day.
