Stepping Out In Faith - Full-Time Ministry
After making my recent decision to follow the Lord's voice and step out into full-time ministry, I have heard a variety of people, unbelievers and believers alike, say things like "How can you do that?" and "Mark, I'm concerned". I can only answer that when the Lord speaks, I listen – and obey. Since making my prodigal return He has spoken to me, every night at 4am for the first 3-4 months; answering questions, guiding and keeping me without failing me one time. Believe me when I tell you that this decision to follow His voice was not an easy one. I've quit my job, have little funds and three weeks ago had nowhere to live and only the prospect of pastoring a start-up home church. I wrestled and fought with God and was absolutely terrified to the point of exhaustion at times before coming to the realization that He hadn't failed me yet and that He wouldn't fail me now - this is His promise and His love! I have been humbled tremendously to say the least. Heidi Baker probably put it best when she said, “When you are in love with God, you are not afraid to yield your life to Him.” I look forward to whatever it is God has for me with great anticipation and joy to serve in any way He sees fit.
