When you are very close to a visionary, or very close to a vision, you’re constantly going to be driven to change. To go to a new place, you have to go to a new location. You also have to think in a new way. That sometimes causes discomfort. Vision can constantly keep you unsettled, but it also keeps you fluid and mobile, ready to take the next step toward your vision.
This truth is essential to understand because, when you keep company with God, you have to keep moving. When the Israelites were traveling in the desert, they would put down their stakes and set up their tents, but soon the pillar of cloud would move again, and they would need to follow it.
Have you truly answered the King’s question, “What do you want in life?” Write down your answer. What things are distracting you from the real “business” of your life? Take some time to really pray about this important question. It will change your life.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father, thank You for declaring in Your Word that You have a plan for our lives that will bring us a good future and an abiding hope. You have placed within us a purpose that is exciting and that goes beyond just working at a job. Through Your love and Your purposeful design, You give our lives true meaning. Please help us to walk in Your purposes, for Your kingdom’s sake. In the name of Jesus, our wonderful Lord and Savior, amen.
Thought: When you keep company with God, you have to keep moving forward.
