In my experience, peace often doesn’t come until obedience begins. Seldom do I have complete peace prior to beginning to obey what I sense God is calling me to do.
Many times the direction God appears to be leading me doesn’t make sense. I’m restless. I don’t sleep well. I question myself and what I’m sensing.
I’ve previously written steps I take to discern God’s will (You can read that HERE and HERE), but after I’ve done that process, and I’m still sensing God’s leading, the next place for me hasn’t always been an overwhelming sense of peace. The next place for me is one of obedience.
I’ve learned I may have to get my feet wet (Joshua 3) before the waters begin to part and peace begins to fill my heart.
Are you in one of those times of discernment? Do you sense God’s leading? Do you believe God is calling you to a new level of faith and dependence on Him?
The next step may be to get your feet wet.
