It must be noted that any adventure taken is not done so with regard to control or expectation. The adventurer is one who is willing to take the risk in not knowing what lies before him/her. We put our trust in the uncreated Maker of the universe and His guiding of us day by day. The question simply falls before us; are we ready to lay our lives down for Him? This will require sacrifice and perhaps uncomfortable experiences.

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. – Psalm 27:4-5

King David is saying, “Truly there is nothing greater than the Lord. Surely He is all that I want or need. No matter what the trial or failure I face, His grace is sufficient for me.” David, a king, a man who has everything he would ever want, looks to God and acknowledges that He is all that is ever worth desiring for in this universe. This life is not one that hides in the misinformed comfort of the world; it propels us beyond happiness and into the expanse of joy.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. – James 1:2-5

What must you sacrifice for this adventure?
Read Psalm 50:23, Romans 12:1, Hebrews 13:15-16

Meditate on what God is doing or desires for your life.

Ask Him to remove anything preventing you from seeking Him.
Read Romans 6:14, 1 John 2:1-2, Galatians 2:20, 1 Peter 2:24
