The Inner Process
I was reading a blog today by the title of this post and the title consumed me. It appears that this blogger is using this media to share his inner thoughts and ideas. When I read the title it leaped inside of me, God is taking us all through an inner process. How I wish I would be able to recognize and appreciate the power of process when I was younger...I've always been impatient, drove fast, took short cuts, enjoyed the microwave, and wanted to get there as quickly as possible in most every area of life. When it comes to spiritual matters I've been much the same and always valued what was visible outwardly more than what was taking place inwardly. Now that I'm an old man of 44, been married almost 20 years, the father of two daughters, and just beginning my 28th year of ministry...I recognize that process is good, it purges some things that need to be removed, which can't always be done in a hurry, it completes things that have been started, that otherwise must have not been completed, and all things don't need to be revealed, or at least not initially, let the plan get in place and the process completed before the revelation comes. Could it be that God is working inside when we aren't even aware of it?
