Underline these words: "God is working in you." He does this as you engage your mind, open your mouth, move your feet, and use your hands to do what He's already put into your heart. The moment you say yes to His will, He gives you the ability to perform it. Notice, He does not reveal His will to you, then call you you. He calls you and as you step out in faith and obey Him, He reveals His will to you step by step, empowering and equipping you as you go. If your're thinking you'd like more detail before you make a commitment, take not. First, God may make you uncomfortable where you are, "As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him." (Deuteronomy 32:11,12). To teach her children to fly, a mother eagle literally pushed them out of the nest. Talk about being out of your element! Can you imagine what they are thinking? It's my mother doing this to me. But until a baby eagle is forced out of its comfort zone, it doesn't realize it wa born to fly, spread its wings, release its power, and take its place in the heavens. Is God stirring up your comfort zone today? Second, God's direction is impossible to follow without His help. He plans it that way. Jesus said, " . . without me ye can do nothing." (John 15:5). Third, There's persistence in His leading. Human leaders go away, but God's direction stays. That means time is on your side--so stay in step with God and don't get ahead of Him.
Promise: :For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations." (Psalm 100:5)
Reflection: Never need the child of God fear the failure of the heavenly promise for the Lord is unto everlasting. He is. And was. And ever will be. And He is faithful! Faithful to the fulfilment of every good thing! Faithful to His eternal promise of the redemption, justification, sanctification, and glorification of His chosen people! Take heart and enjoy well the Sabbath rest bought us by Christ!
