I am beginning to wonder if the best strategy for reaching our people group is no more complicated than simply abiding in His presence and ONLY doing those things He impresses my spirit to do through prayer. (Not there, yet, but thinking about it!)
The problem with this is, of course, we are goal and activity oriented. We are people who value "hard work." We are taught that the fruits of our labor correspond with how hard we have worked at something. We feel the preassure of men to perform and give an acceptable accounting of ourselves. Self-worth is gained by WHAT we do, WHAT people think of us, and how BUSY we are.
It is hard to simply rest in WHO we are in the Lord and WHAT God is doing all around us.
What is God showing you these days? I would love to hear it in the comments section (and believe other readers would be blessed as well.)
Lesson number 3 coming up...
