When I first heard The Lord speak to me about going into the mission field, I wanted to know exactly what His long-term plans were. My desire to understand what was in store for me soon blinded me from His desire for spontaneity. It took me many (thank goodness minor) mistakes for me to realize that His true plan is like the Bible says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
With the calling that God has placed on your life, the feeling of not knowing what the next step is or what is up ahead can be expected. In Psalm 119:105 It says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” The verse says “a lamp unto my feet.” It is a light for your feet so you may see your next step. It doesn’t say, ‘Thy word is a map’ so we may plan every detail of our journey.
If God showed us everything, where would the fun be in that? If we knew every step ahead of time, how would our faith be built up?
Walk with Him in intimacy and faith daily, because practice makes perfect, and having faith and a relationship with God is no exception.
Be clueless. Trust Him. Have fun. He will give you a greater adventure than you could ever imagine.
