Seeking His Wisdom
From ESV Bible: Psalm 40 "but may all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; may those who love Your salvation say continually, "Great is the Lord!"
In preparing for future missions work it is easy to lose sight of the fact that our end goal is not mission work per se, but rather to glorify God and honor Him in all that we do. Even so, we find it easy to lose sight of the every day seeking Him and His will. Even though we will never find a passage in His word that says "Daniel and Rachael, I want you to go to ______ on this date and do ______ kind of mission work, we can know His will as He reveals it.
In October when we travel to North Carolina we will know if working with the JAARS division of Wycliffe is God's next step for us in missions. If it is not with JAARS, we know His plan is good and that He does have a plan for us, even if all we know is that He desires us to worship and glorify Him (Jeremiah 29:11, Romans 8:28-29).
When He speaks, we desire to be servants who stop long enough to hear. "Speak Lord, for Your servant hears" (1 Samuel 3:9)
