When God is calling us into a new adventure and it depends on us and our belief, our understanding that it is from the Lord and our willingness to step into that. That’s what the session of the Explorer is all about.
Adventure is frontier. Outside your comfort zone. A place where your footing is unstable, the path is strange, and the way ahead clouded. It is about doing things you haven’t done before, trusting God to guard your steps.
Do you feel as if you have to do this on your own? Frustration at work. Struggle at home. Busyness and distraction dominate your life. How can you walk the path if you can’t even keep your head above water?
Paul McDonald and Chris Stater discussed our identity as a warrior in God's kingdom. Below is an excerpt from that conversation. The full version can be found on The Trailmarker Podcast, found on iTunes, Google Play, and online.
The most important battles are not fought with weapons as we understand them. We do not battle against flesh and blood, but against thoughts, accusations, pressures, and condemnation. Because of that, we come to realize our place in the trenches and barbed wire. We wake up in a war zone.
Whether we fight thorns or dragons, we fight from victory. Jesus defeated Satan, the red dragon (Revelation 12), and He took our thorns on the cross. We embrace the power of the cross, resurrection and ascension as we battle. And when we feel weak, afraid, rejected, or defeated, Jesus’ strength is sufficient for us. All we have to do is accept it.
