Two years ago on CNN I saw an interview of ex-Korn member Brian Welch. I was captivated by this young man, and when I heard him say the name of Jesus, I wanted to find out what this was all about. Brian explained his conversion and how the love of Christ transformed him. He was basically giving the gospel on primetime television. Brian had come across a verse in the Bible that said, “And they left everything.” And his life was interrupted and he gave up the band and his previous lifestyle to follow Christ.
When God interrupts our life and intervenes and gives us a specific direction, will we go? Right now you are either on your way into an interruption or on your way out of an interruption because that is the nature of God.
A leader in the Bible named Joshua knew how to handle interruption. There are four things that Joshua did in Joshua 3 that show us how to handle interruptions:
- Act immediately in obedience to God
What is God asking you to do? Are you procrastinating? You and I are good at giving excuses.
- Act fearlessly.
God want leaders who are fearless and do not let the world sway them. You have the Holy Spirit living inside of you. Do not be afraid.
- Acknowledge the presence of God.
Jesus said in John 5:19, “I only do what I see the Father do.” Jesus did His Father’s will and nothing else. What if we only moved for God? If Gods not going, we shouldn’t be going.
- Anticipate God’s miracles.
God can do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond anything that we can ask or think.
