What common sense hedges are keeping you from obeying God’s call to walk in His Word? Could it be doctrine, lack of faith, habits, laziness? Common sense says, “I’m safe here, I think I’ll stay.” But God has more for our lives than just the same old, same old stuff! He’s got new things to teach us, new adventures in faith, new growth–every day!
If you have had no growth recently or if you’re just going with the crowd, living a “safe” life, I’d suggest it’s time to step out in faith, push through the dark hedges of common sense into the unknown, unexplored, wide-open, light, bright spaces of God’s Word. You’d be surprised at how free it is and wonder why it took so long to trust God with your life–completely.
