One thing that separates a good quarterback from a great one is the ability to read a defense and call an audible. Even though it is important to go to the line with everyone knowing the play, if something doesn’t look right or feel right, then a great q-back will make an adjustment.
Sometimes we must do that in church leadership as well. As we see what God is doing or what the needs are in our church, it might lead us to call and audible. If we are going following the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we must be okay with this. I would much rather be part of what God is doing than just invite God to be part of what we are planning.
God is leading me to call an audible with our next series. I can’t get it out of my mind. We had a great series planned with some kickin’ music and all the weeks were outlined. It is something I’ve wanted to preach on for a couple years now. But, something is pulling me to call an audible. Now I’m praying like mad that God does something bigger than I could imagine. Who knows what God has in store, but I pray that I will always be open to calling an audible when needed!
What do you need to call an audible on right now in your life? Is God leading you to make a change that you weren’t planning? If so, do it…He will never lead you the wrong way.
