I believe with all of my heart that God has a special, specific plan for our lives as Christ followers.
But I have to remind myself that it's more about the being than the doing.
God is more concerned with my growth than my accomplishments.
First things first:
Matthew 22:36-39 (ESV)
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"
And Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
This is the great and first commandment.
And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
But when it comes to the details, rarely does God give us the big picture.
We're led step by step.
By His Word:
Psalm 119:105 (ESV)
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."
Not a flood light.
A lamp helps you see the step you need to take now.
Not the steps you'll take later.
Maybe instead of asking "What is God's will for my life?" we should be asking "Lord, what step do you want me to take in this moment?"
The journey of a thousand miles is made up of many individual steps.
You'll know what step to take when you need to know .
Kind of takes the pressure off doesn't it?
