Journey 9-21-06

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

This verse has been rolling around in my mind for awhile now. The particular reason it has stayed with me is the phrase, “a voice behind you.” God gives us His Word to teach us about His will. He gives us the Holy Spirit to provide checks and nudges in our life. And He often asks us to step out in faith. He told Abraham to step out and go to a land that He would show Him. Sometimes God asks us to move out and once we are moving then we hear His voice behind us, confirming “this is the way.”

I must admit that I would prefer a roadmap, marked with the destination, route and convenient stopping points along the way. Sometimes following His will here in Hungary seems so vague. I am often functioning, not based on a list of activities, but on a selection of opportunities. It is comforting to know that God holds the roadmap and keeps me on track even when I step out uncertain of what lies ahead.
