Deeper Day 294: Unknown

Recently, God has invited me into a season of unknown. His constant word over every part of my world is, unknown. I even have pictures hung in my room that reflect this….the one on the left is the day Chris and I eloped and got married, a clear picture of the past. The window hung on the right, is empty. When I hung it the other day, God spoke to me, “This is a glimpse at your future and it’s unknown to you for now.” For whatever reason, God is asking me for more trust than He has ever before. He is leading me where I can’t even see the next step before me until I place my foot on the ground.

This season is such that if I don’t remain in tune with His voice, then I might get lost. It requires a constant communion with Him. One more intense than I’ve ever had before.

By nature, I dislike unknown things. I don’t like quick change. I prefer to ease into things. God knows that and for years He’s been lovingly accommodating to that part of me. Now, He’s asking me to grow. Deepen my trust in Him. Go on an adventure with Him. I have said, “Yes”.

Yes, it’s been scary, but it’s also carried reward. I have seen Him providing exactly what we need, when we need it. My prayers have begun to transform too. I used to pray specifics, now I often ask God for creative miracles in the places where we need breakthrough.

As Holy Spirit has grown more creativity within me, I’ve desired to see more creativity around me and in those who are nearest to my heart. I desire to see as much of God’s creativity as I can. I thrive in the creative places. “Oh God, that You would draw other creatives into my circle.” My heart cries out to walk in tandem with other creative forerunners.

I don’t know where I’m going, I only know God has said, “Come.” Just as Peter walked out onto the water, God has called me out. Only, I’ve seen myself at the top of a mountain and there is seemingly nothing between me and the next mountain top. Yet, God is saying, “Come.” I step out, and when I do my foot lands on a solid spot. It was unseen to the human eye, until I touched it. Then He again says, “Come.” I step again and find another solid place to stand. This is my life right now, but it’s never felt more exciting or full of promise…

Prayer Moment: God, You have created me to be a forerunner. Help me to embrace that. Lead me God, then teach me how to bring others along with me. You created me for relationship, so teach me how to walk out relationship with those around me. Give me a value for each person. Help me to never turn away from one because they don’t seem to get it. Show me who is to travel into the unknown with me. I trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment: “For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:14-16
