The Christian life is a journey along a narrow road. While the road is straight, a lot of the time it's hard to see very far ahead. We get glimpses and impressions of what lies ahead, but in order to discover what's really there, we have to keep moving forward.
I regularly hit patches where I realize that everything I've been doing up until that point, has simply been preparation for what's ahead. All of the digging in to learn new things and the relational stretching isn't really about those things in themselves, it's about where God is taking you on the journey.
It's like this: You walk along in faith, doing the next right thing you know to do, then all of a sudden you get a moment of clarity. The mist lifts, and you get a little glimpse into what God is up to.
God's purposes for your life are so much better than you can imagine, and He has the passion and power to bring them to pass. Your job is to co-labor with Him by quieting your heart so you can hear His voice and by obeying quickly.
Destiny Key: If you are in a foggy spot on the journey, don't give up. Keep pressing in and moving forward. That's what faith is all about.
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
