Just Keep Asking

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

That has been the verse I’ve clung to and been guided by for the past year or so, but with every new challenge comes a fresh perspective on it.

CALL TO ME. That’s how the verse starts off, but a lot of times I skip right over that part and wait for God to tell me great and mighty things that I don’t know. But God doesn’t reveal things we aren’t seeking out. He waits for us to make that step, to ask Him for His plan before we chase our own.

So often I will ask God what His will is, for wisdom for the situation I’m in, and He will give it to me. He will illuminate the next step for me and I’ll take it, even if it’s scary.

But then, after I take that next step, I’ll stop. I’ll forgot to ask God again what’s next. I’ll stop and take a break, forgetting that this is a race where I have to keep taking the next step if I’m going to get anywhere. And with each step I have to ask God which direction it’s supposed to be in. And with each step He is faithful to give me a glimpse of the great and mighty things that He has for me.

I just have to keep asking, and listen, because God always answers.
