Starting the year off the right way… “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” “Back to the Basics.”
“He went out, not knowing where he was going.” -Hebrews 11:8 (excerpt refers to Abraham, who left his dwelling place by faith, to receive the inheritance promised him by God.)
If you have ever ‘gone out’ as Abraham did, when someone ask what you are doing, there is no logical answer.
We are not always sure of what to expect, but we are sure Christ knows what He is doing.
Attitude that keep us in wonder. (Where we want to be…) Do we trust in Him entirely? Do we wake-up willing to “go out”? (as Abraham was)
Worry is disrespectful and unnecessary.
Attitude of life –>>Continual willingness to go out. —>>In dependence upon God.
God does not always (in my opinion, rarely does He say…) do this because this is gonna happen, and then you are gonna do this… when I was 19 years old, I left home with the promise of every kind of dream that my human-nature could dream… forsaking the faith of my youth, and ran as far as I could… seeing all that I could see… doing all that I could do to find ‘happiness’ to feel ‘something’ greater than facing the reality that I’d believed in a lie and was chasing a false dream/hope/what could be called a ‘fictional-fixation’. In a way that only God can, He purposed it all for good, that I’d be right here, Jan. 2, 2017, with a warm cup of coffee, comfortable bedroom slippers, clearview to the street (window), warm lighting, resources for research, an ‘off-day’ to study and relax, warm clothes (nice clothes), a beautiful home, etc. etc… Thank you Jesus for that which you’ve purposed in me, and all that shall be, in 2017.
