Did you know that God sometimes shows us what will happen in 20 years time as if it will happen tomorrow? If we are not sensitive to the Holy Spirit so that He will help us discern God’s agenda per time, we may step out too early in the first year and will remain in the wilderness for 19 years waiting for the appointed time of the fulfillment of the agenda.
The other side of the coin is when we delay stepping out due to fear of the unknown or insensitivity to the move of the Spirit. We could be left behind on God’s agenda and someone else may be called in to get the job done.
What is important is that we must all learn to follow the Holy Spirit every day and learn to respond to Him in prompt obedience by faith. This will require faith in God’s unfailing love, self discipline, taking personal responsibility, capacity building and lots of sacrifices but it is going to be worth it.
Prayer: Lord teach me to follow you and be sensitive to your Spirit everyday in Jesus name, amen.
