I Need Direction But God Is Quiet

I Need Direction But God Is Quiet

I think Jesus wanted to expose the central issue behind our fear: We don't know God's love for us. If we think God will be disappointed if we rush out ahead and fall down, we're unlikely to move very much. 

But if He's your good father, won't he scamper up behind you, giggle a little at your daring, pick you up and brush you off? Then place your feet somewhere more suited to your skill level?

Doesn't it feel better to believe that about him?

Again and again, God repeats his promise to help us, to extend his righteous right hand to go before us, to make a way, where there seems no way. He promises to do that for anyone who asks, but if we remain hermetically sealed inside a world we can easily handle, we never give him the chance to prove it.  

If you're bored with your life, it might be that you're twiddling your thumbs inside a life you finished crafting long ago. Quit redecorating it. Knock some walls out. Or maybe even sell it and move.
