The Next Step

We came here to language school with only vague ideas of what we might do afterward, and that hasn’t changed after six weeks of school. In fact, even more opportunities for ministry have developed and I am even more unsure of what God has for us after graduation in December.

As I read Proverbs 19 this morning, a few pieces of wisdom stood out to me:

Verse 2: “Even zeal is not good without knowledge, and the one who acts hastily sins.”

Verse 20: “Listen to counsel and receive instruction so that you may be wise later in life.”

Verse 21: “Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the LORD’S decree will prevail.”

In short, I have been challenged to rest in God and trust Him to reveal his will in His time as I seek Him. I understand that I need to seek out Godly men and women in order to learn from their experience and wisdom. Most importantly, I need to stop trying to come up with my own plans and instead trust God to direct my steps as He has already planned. Thank God, though, that even if I take a wrong step, “the LORD’S decree will prevail” and He will always be faithful to correct and guide me.
