Waiting-A Dimension of Faith
JOHN SHIRK – In First Samuel 22, verse 3, David made this statement to the king of Moab: “Would you let my father and mother come and stay with you until I learn what God will do for me?”
David was anointed to be the next king of Israel, but was on the run from the current king who was seeking to take his life. David makes provisions for his parents to stay with one of King Saul’s adversaries. David also affirms that God has a plan for his life. He just does not know how God will work out that plan for him, but he believes that one day God will reveal it to him as he trusts God with each step. God has a plan for our lives to be His workmanship while we live on the earth. We don’t know where the Lord will take us 20 years from now. By faith, we might not see the future clearly, but we can trust in the One who does see our future clearly, and loves us sincerely. We can go forward with the confidence that He works out His redemptive purposes in the lives of those who follow Him. We might not become a famous king, but by His grace, we can live a life that brings honor to the name of Jesus, the King of Kings.
That’s today’s Mission Statement for representing Jesus in the world today.
