The difference between those who do something and those who don’t is that those who do something . . . do something!

Perhaps the most difficult task for us to perform is to rely on God's grace and God's grace alone for our salvation. It is difficult for pride to rest on grace. Grace is for other people - for beggars. We don't want to live by a heavenly welfare system. We want to earn our own way and atone for our own sins. We like to think that we will go to heaven because we deserve to be there.

The prophet Isaiah makes a strong statement about the fact that no one knows the will of God. He proclaims that eye has not seen and ear has not heard the things God wants to do for His people. Yet Paul answers the prophet of old by making it clear that those things they did not know back then, we know now because we have God’s Spirit within us. His Spirit gives us access to His mind and thoughts. Isaiah the prophet goes on to ask a profound question: Who has known the mind of the LORD, that he will instruct Him? Paul answers in effect, "We know! We have the mind of Christ." "How do we actually have access to God’s mind?" you ask. Paul says that the Holy Spirit knows the thoughts of God, and that the Holy Spirit lives in us.

Long looking with admiration produces change. From your heroes you pick up mannerisms and phrases and tones of voice and facial expressions and habits and demeanors and convictions and beliefs. The more admirable the hero is and the more intense your admiration is, the more profound will be your transformation. In the case of Jesus, he is infinitely admirable, and our admiration rises to the most absolute worship. Therefore, when we behold him as we should, the change is profound.

Even when we’ve prayerfully and carefully sought God’s guidance, "it does not follow that right guidance will be vindicated by a trouble-free course thereafter" (p. 239). Numerous examples in the Bible show people falling into trouble who were directly where God led them: the Israelites between Pharaoh and the Red Sea; the disciples in a boat in a storm, a boat that Jesus sent them off in; Paul in prison, Jesus Himself on the cross, just to name a few. An easy path doesn’t always mean we’re on the right road: a troubled path doesn’t necessarily mean we are on the wrong one.

The secret of following God's will is wrapped up in rejecting the good for God's best.

Walk up to face your fear full on and consign even that possible outcome to the care of your loving God. Surrender to the possibility of what you fear the most. Surrender as an act of ruthless trust, knowing that God’s love will ultimately be enough to cover you. Relinquishment is the act that says, "I trust You, Jesus. And I trust that whatever You allow to happen to me or to the one I am praying for, Your love will keep us all close to Your heartbeat for now and through eternity."

Sometimes God isn't quick with His answers to our questions because He likes having a conversation with us.
