Since the Hebrews Challenge has finished, Shaina and I have started Blackaby's "Experiencing God".
I'm not sure what led us to this book at this time...but in the first three chapters, we've had stories of God's work when Blackaby's daughter was sick with cancer and a story regarding God's work in church planting.
Two quotes from last night's chapter to hopefully encourage you today.
"If God were to give you a specific plan for your life, you would likely put your focus on the plan rather than on Him. God does not want your life to depend on a plan or an income or a person or anything else. He wants you to trust Him."
"What is God's will for my life?" is not the best question to ask. The better inquiry is, "What is God's will?" Because people are naturally self-centered, we tend to view the whole world--even God's activity--in terms of our own lives. Of course, we want to know what we should do and how events will affect us. But that is actually an inverted life-perspective. Once I know God's will, the my life gains its proper perspective, and I can adjust my life to Him and to His purposes. In other words, what is it that God is purposing to accomplish where I am? Once I know what God is doing, then I see what I should do."
Don't waste your life today.
