12 Sep Where is He taking you?
Where is God taking you? Is He releasing you from one place, one station, one pattern and moving you to another? I just came across the word “release” and was intrigued by it. Release: 1. to free from confinement, bondage, obligation, pain, etc.; let go. 2. to free from anything that restrains, fastens, etc.: to release a catapult. Of course it doesn’t have to be bad, release from a bad place. It can just be good change or necessary endings. I think I took it as moving from one station or pattern of growth to another. Then again, how about that word catapult?
Certainly, God occasionally catapults us to new stations. I’m a relatively quick adapter, so I am all about the catapult – throw me in, get me muddy. I’ll figure it out. But let’s get it over with. Slow releases are difficult for me. But telling God to step it up a bit is never a very good idea. I just like to know the full action plan right up front, all laid out.
So these days, it’s about the whispers. Are you hearing Gods whispers? His promptings? Jeremiah 29:11 … For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord…. Sometimes, we have to sit, quite, read, listen to hear His voice, his Words, His promptings, His whisper, His direction, His release.
So again, are you too busy trying to get to where Gods taking you, to hear where Gods taking you?
