Walking with God requires that we often traverse the unfamiliar, uncomfortable and unknown. We must be willing to navigate this mortal life without the privilege of influencing the beginning, defining the route nor determining the end. We must fix our gaze upon God’s promise and allow Him to guide our path. Every believer willexperience times when human understanding is futile – when our only confidence can be found in trusting God’s Word – causing us to walk by faith and not by sight. The proof of God’s Word rests in our hearts – God’s grace and mercy is given to everyone who truly desires to trust and obey. We must ever remind ourselves that we are the recipients of God’s call not the initiators – we must also remember that God requires unconditional trust. His promised provision is assured to all who will trust and obey. Contentment is never found by those concerned about the future – it is realized by all who choose to trust in the present. I press toward the high calling and purpose of God but I will not determine how God in His infinite sovereign grace and mercy will provide it.
