Well after years of praying about the future I think I am starting to hear a little small voice that says just "stand." I don't know about you but I can drive myself crazy about wanting to know God's will. Just the moment I think I heard something I start questing.
Over this past week I have had some time to reflect and all I keep coming back to is "stand." When you don't know what to do and you are so tired of asking God to write it in the clouds or send a stranger to your house to give you a word. You have to learn to just STAND!!! Stand on what? That if you and I will be obedient to the daily journey putting one foot in front of the other that the path will ultimately lead us to the place of God's will.
You see I like to plan and I like to know the future but sometimes the future comes by "standing." Now I don't mean just doing nothing. I mean that God will take our ordinary life and our routines and make them extraordinary. I need to stop stressing about the future and stand on the promises and believe that the promises will come true if I stand on what I really believe.
The mark of perseverance is not having all the answers to all the questions. Perseverance is walking daily not having all the answers to all the questions. Listen anyone can follow when it is easy. But those that are willing to persevere will follow into what seems to be the unknown. My challenge to you and to me is just to STAND and let God be God and in the end the unknown will be beautiful in time.
