So for some time I’ve been reading a book called Jesus Life Coach. It has what I would call daily passages about how your life can be changed with Jesus as your life coach. This particular passage for today was ‘With Jesus as your life coach, you will Hear Outrageous Requests’. It is based on John 14:22 (NJB) and it really resonated with me and I think there are some of you out there who need to accept and walk boldly into that outrageous request that you’ve been wrestling with. In this passage, Laurie Beth Jones, the author writes,
‘His requests will cause you to leave behind maybe everything that you thought you knew… But if you are willing to give up the ground of everything you think you know, and follow the way that He will show you, you will be given blessings beyond your wildest imaginings… It is one thing to ask God for what you want. Real change happens when you ask what God wants for you. That’s when transformation occurs.’
This passage speaks about how Jesus will ask us to step out of our comfort zone and allow Him to take us to a place we never thought we could arrive at.
At the end of each passage, there are questions to ponder on and answer. Here are the questions from this passage …
1. What outrageous requests is Jesus, your coach, making of you?
2. What if what he’s asking really could come true?
3. What if the only thing keeping it from happening is you?
4. What would happen if you released the brake and decided to go for the ride?
As you ponder on this passage and these questions, I challenge you to DAILY ask God what He wants for you for the next 31 days and see how your life changes. Be open to allowing the impossible to happen in your life. You just might be surprised at what could happen.
Keep me posted on the transformation. Post your results on the TrueheartSpeaks fb page… http://www.Facebook.com/TrueheartSpeaks
