"All you have to do is know where you are going.
The answers will come to you at their own accord."
When Jesus called His first followers, He simply said to them, "Follow me." Their adventure of a lifetime began when they left behind whatever it was they were doing, lined up behind Jesus, and simply walked with Him as He led the way."
Odds are, these twelve guys had questions: "Who is this Jesus guy, really?" "Where are we going?" "What about dinner tonight? I sure hope Jesus knows how to cook!" All of their questions were answered along the way.
Jesus hasn't changed the way He operates. Many times, we want all the answers before we take a step. We want Jesus to let us know where we're going, what's His agenda for us, why life is the way it is, and the result is we find ourselves standing in the same place year after year. However, when we begin to simply follow, it's amazing how the answers come.
Are you allowing your questions to hold you back? Here's my encouragement for you today: just follow. Start each day by placing your eyes on Jesus and simply commit to follow Him. He still is the way, the truth, and the life. As you follow Him, in time, all the answers you need will come.
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people." At once they left their nets and followed him. Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him. (Matthew 4:18-22)
