I am always amazed at how the Lord honors my obedience. So much of my walk has just been one foot in front of the other, doing what is right in front of me. And I am always taken aback when I see Him swing the door wide open in an area that is seemingly unrelated to where I have been walking!
Oh how He delights in our obedience to His still, small voice!
On this journey with Him I realize more and more that He knows the desires of my heart…He knows my secret wishes…He knows where I would like to see His movement in my life and even though it doesn’t look like I think it should and done the way I think it ought to be done…He so honors every secret desire in His time and in His way! Be obedient to His voice even when you don’t understand…especially when you don’t understand!!
Scripture says “His ways are not our ways, His thoughts are higher than ours!” He really does have the better way! My pastor’s wife says this often: “You never know what is on the other side of your obedience!” Well…I can testify…it is something more wonderful and freeing and healing than I could have ever done for myself! Just do it..just be obedient! He will not disappoint!
