“To follow Jesus is to enter the unknown, to relinquish security, and to exchange certainty for confidence in Him.”
A thought by Erwin Raphael McManus from his book, Chasing Daylight: Seize the Power of Every Moment (Kindle Locations 938-939). Kindle Edition.
Now some people want to say they are following Jesus but they want to know because they need security in their life. But that is not what it means to follow Jesus. It means that you have put your faith and your security and your confidence in Him not in your knowing.
Solomon in his Old Testament book of Proverbs in chapter 3 verses 5 and 6 (Msg) says, “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on track. Don't assume that you know it all.”
So who do you trust?
