This is from a past devotion. I’m not even sure of the date—but the “odd thing” was I happened on it by accident today… I wasn’t looking…I promise.
Can I just tell you that on the day I read this one…it hit me square in the eyes. For several reasons.
1) I had missed doing my devotions in my Oswald Chambers book for a few days. I read other things…—but when I picked my book back up, I flipped first to the “day at hand”.
“SMACK”. Right between the eyes.
2) Yes, I had been dreaming. But to put action behind my dreams scared me to death! But still…
My mother always told us, “Actions speak louder than words”. Yes. I know. A mother’s wisdom.
Oswald goes on further,“When we are getting into contact with God in order to find out what He wants, dreaming is right; but when we are inclined to spend our time in dreaming over what we have been told to do, it is a bad thing and God’s blessing is never on it….’neither sit nor stand but go.’ “
It is alright to wait before the Lord to get the instructions…or the road map—but there are times, whenHe bids us go–have faith in Him and go—and He directs us step by step.
Wanda’s favorite verse wasPsalm 27:14. Wait on the Lord. As you are waiting “before Him”…meaning on your knees, in your prayer closet, or on your face, in your private devotions, He is doing the strengthening. He will be your strength. When you feel you have gone your absolute limit….give it up. To Him. And when He answers, however He may choose to answer, give Him all the praise.
There is preparation work ahead. It’s been on my mind—and just last week—those words were spoken over us and to us by an incredible couple—who are just as hungry to see God in action as we are. They have long since been acting on His instructions…
