Every once in awhile I get a spiritual thought or two, and then there are those reoccuring thoughts that tend to consume me..this is one of those. In my spirit I keep hearing this thought of "Where are we going?" It reminds me of what I think must have been in Isaac's mind as his father Abraham took him to the top of a mountain to be sacrificed. It reminds me of Abraham who went not knowing where he was going...he was just going.
I know I mention this kind of stuff quite a bit, but doesn't it seem like God is pulling at us to move up? At our church we are hearing God say that it is our time for perpetual harvest, to return to basics, and to be real. He has also called us to step up to the plate and get involved...just do something!
Perhaps it's the restlessness of my own nature, but inside I'm constantly aware that I cannot allow myself to be stale or even worse...stagnant! I must grow in my walk and relationship with God and in the ministry He has called me to, I must not take it for granted...I must cultivate the fruit and gifts...in that order...that are within me!
Where I'm going may not be as important that I'm going...as long as I'm on the right road!
