By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. Hebrews 11:8 (NIV)
Ready To Go
Will you go wherever I guide you? Will you do whatever I ask of you? I assume you are asking me if I will go even if I don’t know where I am going, or will I do something even though I may not fully understand what I am doing. That is a very good assumption. That is exactly what I am asking you. You could have asked me if I will take steps of faith with you. Yes, I could have asked you that question, but I didn’t. What would you say if I was asking you to take more than steps of faith? Are you asking me If I will take leaps of faith with you? Yes, now you are more clearly understanding what I am asking of you. A leap of faith would require me to put all my faith and trust in you. Yes, it would. A leap of faith would require me to leave the comfortable and familiar for what might be uncomfortable and unfamiliar. How does that sound to you? It sounds a little scary. It sounds quite challenging. It sounds unpredictable. Yes, it is all those things, without a doubt. What do you say? I will not say no to you, that is for sure. Will you say yes to me? Yes, I will. Why will you say yes to me? I know that you will be with me. You will help me. I also know that you have a good plan for my life. Your will and your ways are better than my plan. You will do in and through me what I could never even imagine. How do you know that? Just looking back over my life, I could have never predicted where you would have led me and how you would have used me. Had I designed my own way; it would have been far less demanding. It would have been far more predictable. It would have probably been uninteresting and even boring. It would also have been unfruitful, and all of this would have been most regrettable. I am thankful and grateful that you have been leading and guiding the course of my life. That’s good. So, I will say it again, yes, I will go wherever you guide me to do whatever you ask of me. Without qualifications? Without limits? Yes, whenever and wherever. I am at your service. I am ready to go. That is very good.
Lord, I will listen to you. I will accept your instruction. I will follow your guidance. I will go and do whatever you ask of me, even when I do not fully understand where I will be going or what I will be doing. All I know is that I will be following and serving you. Amen
