Did you know that God is always at work around you and me? Our responsibility is to slow down enough so we can be aware, look and see. His will is not mysterious or shrouded. But, when we don’t agree with His will, or the path He has planned is not what we expected or wanted, it’s easier to say “I’m waiting for God’s will” instead of taking the steps He’s laid out before us – especially when we may not see or agree.
“Christians spend much time talking about “seeking God’s will,”as though it were hidden and difficult to find. God does not hide His will. His will is not difficult to discover. We do not have to plead with God to reveal His will to us. He is more eager to reveal His will than we are willing to receive it. We sometimes ask God to do things He has already done!
Jesus walked so intimately with His Father that He was always aware of what the Father was doing around Him (John 5:19–20). Jesus said that if our eyes are pure, they will see God and recognize His activity (Matt. 6:22). If we are not seeing God’s activity, the problem is not a lack of revelation. The problem is that our sin prevents us from noticing it.
When God is working in your child’s life or when He is convicting your coworker, He may reveal His activity to you. His revelation is His invitation for you to join Him in His redemptive work. Be alert to God’s activity around you. He will reveal His activity to His servants. If your spiritual eyes are pure, you will be overwhelmed by all that you see God doing around you!” (Blackaby, Experiencing God Day-by-Day).
Look for God’s leading in your life, join Him where He is working. Regardless of your expectations, what you believed or hoped for your life, God has even bigger and better things in store. Trust in His goodness, trust in His love, trust in His leading. Listen for the whisper of His voice and you will be walking in faith…not by sight…and in the center of His will.
By His grace and for His glory!
