Stand still for a moment to regroup and go in the direction that is best suited for God's mission.

Over the last several months, I haven't posted many new posts to my blog. Sometimes, we have to stand still and seek God's guidance and direction. At times, I find myself wanting to orchestrate events the way I want them to occur, but one of the lessons I've been taught by the Spirit over the last few months is that God's timing is not ours and some times, I have to stand still and let God have His way.
Yes, His ways are higher than my own ways. It takes a degree of submission and obedience to remain where God wants you to be, even it means distancing yourself from some things and people. I was just thinking that although things don't work out the way we would have liked for them to, God knows best! Having faith means I'm going to do what is required even if I can't see the results yet, even if I have to walk alone, even if I have to make the first step, even if I have to do the work, and even if I don't know what's the next step. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
I have observed not only in my life but in others around me, there is a hesitation to take a stand sometimes when it may look like it's a minority view. Hence, I don't need a majority behind me when I have God covering me. Now I do believe that team play is vital but when the team members are not on the same level of maturity, then it is fine to acknowledge that and push forward. There are assignments still left to be complete. When one group of people do have have the wherewithal to engage, the task is still attainable. Sometimes, it just takes me to stand still for a moment to regroup and go in the direction that is best suited for God's mission.
Still Standing by God's Grace,
