Sometimes God gives direction requiring major change. He tells some people to go on the mission field in Africa or to give away large sums of money.

But God created the body of Christ with different abilities, strengths and desires to reach people in many different ways (1 Cor. 12).

Jesus came that we might "have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)" (John 10:10).

God loves you and wants to bless you abundantly (Eph. 3:17-20; 1 John 4:16, 19). Once you have an understanding of how great His love is, you will no longer be afraid that He will ask you to do something, which would be bad for you.

As we have seen, obedience to the promptings of the Holy Spirit will always lead us to peace and joy—victory, not to defeat.

When you stop to really consider it: Do you think God would ask us to obey Him in something as big as going to the mission field when He knows we have a hard time obeying Him in something as small as going home from the mall when He tells us?

He works with us on our level. As we grow in obedience to minor things, He leads us into major things.
