Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey
Your reaction to your circumstances reveals your heart. Does it trust the Lord? Does it react with peace and anticipation or concern and worry? Do you want to be happy? There’s only one way…
Be filled with the Holy Spirit. Know you are in God’s presence and following His direction, His pillar of fire. His path is set before you. Sometimes though the command is to wait, to stay put, to ‘set up the tabernacle’ and worship, just be before Him. Other times there are commands to work, but there come commands to rest as well. Paul worked tirelessly, but he fellowshiped with others, maintained relationships and obeyed. There were years of learning, waiting before all that began. If you never stop, you will never learn, and then God will never call you into action.
Note: Paul was a Christian for 14 years before he made a convert; there were “eleven silent years.”
