Tonight, after watching Miss HIV and hearing Mart Green speak about his action of obedience to God’s call, I lay under a tree watching the clouds blow across the sky above. I heard You say that it was time for action. That the Kingdom of God comes to those who forcefully lay hold of it. I knew I needed to forcefully lay hold, but I did not know what to “lay hold” of… what the next step could be.
THEN, you reminded me of the word you gave me this summer. To obey first in the small acts- to put FIRST THINGS FIRST.
My immediate step became obvious. A TOTALLY ABANDONED ACTION: laying hold of YOU.
YES, LORD! Feed my passion that I may take action in laying hold of YOU! It is YOU I need. YOU alone, dear LORD.
When the day comes that my next step of ACTION is before me, YOU will guide me, saying “This is the way, walk in it!” (Isaiah 30:21)
