As the Father progressively reveals His ways to you in your Christian pilgrimage, you will develop a deeper level of trust in Him. Are you ready for God's next revelation?
There is a significant difference between worldly reasoning and counsel that comes straight from the living word of God. God promises to stand by every word He has ever spoken.
Obedience to your Lord's commands will affect others. Don't refuse to obey what you know God is asking because you fear the cost to your family will be too great. Beware lest you seek to prevent those you love from taking up the cross God has for them.
God wants to do the impossible through your life. All He requires is your obedience. He will lead you to do things that are absolutely impossible in your own strength. But God will grant you victory, step by step, as you obey Him.
At times when the road is difficult, God will place a friend alongside us. One of God's most precious gifts to us is friends who encourage us and lovingly challenge us to "keep going."
As God's servant you should have no other agenda than to be obedient to whatever He tells you. He may not reveal today His intentions for the next five years, but He will tell us what our next step should be.
