I am seeing a curve in the road, it is somewhat of a sharp curve. There are signs at this curve in multiple spots with arrows on them. I hear the Lord say, “Many are coming to a curve in the road where things will shift for you at this curve. It is time to trust Me like never before. When you take this curve with Me, it will shift your journey to adventures. It is adventure time. I have laid out signs for you showing you, at the curve, which way to go. Many have been on a journey with Me, which has been wonderful, but it is ADVENTURE time. Trust Me, follow My signs, take the curve with Me. “
Let’s look at the difference between a journey and an adventure:
Journey– A traveling from one place to another, usually taking a rather long time, a trip, distance, course, passage or progress from one stage to another.
Adventure– An exciting or very unusual experience; a bold, usually risky undertaking, to venture, to take a risk, an exciting or unexpected event or course of events.
I was talking with my husband Jay about the difference between a journey and an adventure and he said, to him a journey is when you know the destination, but an adventure is when you don't know the destination. An adventure is a risk, where you don't really have a plan, whereas a journey already has the plan laid out for you.
I can only speak for myself, but I am ready for so much more with God. I am truly ready for God's adventure for my life. I am going to lay down my plan and my agenda daily and follow His signs, His leading and take His adventure. I am ready for the curve. I am ready to take His curve, His shift for my life as fast as He wants me to take it, as sharp as He wants me to turn, I am ready . Are you?
To me, if I am on a journey, there isn't much risk and it is easy to get comfortable. The amount of faith that is required for a journey is less than what it will take for an adventure. I could get really comfortable on a journey with less risk, less faith and less trust required. But, man when I jump on this adventure with God, there will be more faith, trust and risk required. There will be stretching on the adventure. Where there is stretching there is growth.
I say, “Take me Lord, I am ready for adventures with you!!! Stretch me Lord!!!” Will you say this to the Lord? It is stretching time. Time to take the curve with God. When God says it, I believe it. My husband and I have been stretched and He has proven Himself faithful. Then, we were stretched even more and I know He is faithful and He will do it again, only even more this time.
He is saying to us, “ I am in the curve. I am in your future. I have prepared the way and now it is time for you to walk in it. I will lead and direct you and I will be with you.”
Isaiah 30:21 (NIV) “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.”
Psalms 139:16 (NIV) “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book, before one of them came to be.”
God has already been in our future and all our days have been written down. We can trust our Daddy God. We can take the curve with Him and go on these adventures with Him. He can be trusted. If He says it He will do it. We just have to believe and trust Him.
Joshua 1:9 (NIV) “Have I not commanded you? ‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.’”
We have His promise that He is with us. His promises are YES and AMEN!!!
There is a curve in front of you, will you take it with God?
He is ready to shift you, are you ready to be shifted. He is ready to take you from the journey you have been on and shift you and take you on adventures with Him. With Him is key. He is on these adventures with you. You have nothing to fear, but so much to gain. Oh Sons and Daughters of God, let Him shift you, stretch you and grow you. Allow your Daddy to take you on adventures with Him. You will not be disappointed. Your Daddy God will NEVER disappoint you. Let's get on these adventures with God.
Step out of the journey God tells you to leave and step into adventures with Him. Seek Him, ask Him what journey He wants to take you from and what adventure He wants to take you on. It's ADVENTURE TIME!!!!
