“Peter said to him, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? …”
(John 13:37, NET)
Oswald Chambers makes the following statement regarding this verse: “There are times when you cannot understand why you cannot do what you want to do. When God brings the blank space, see that you do not fill it in, but wait” (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest).
Last December Bruce had an idea for something he could potentially do for others in the SOWER ministry. As he investigated and discussed the possibility he was told that his idea was certainly doable. He would be contacted regarding its pursuit. Since then, there has been no word. Is this his idea or His idea? We want to be sure that it is His idea, so we wait (sometimes not so patiently) as Chambers noted.
It is hard to just simply stay put, as we would like to make plans for where to serve in the next few months. Oh, we have ideas, but we don’t want the good when we can have His best. We want to serve Him where we can use the gifts, talents, and experience He has provided us for His glory. So, we wait expectantly to hear where we are to go and what we are to do.
Please pray with us that He will clearly show us what we are to do next. 🤠🤗
