How do we know the will of God?
I know you may have come on this Restless journey hoping for complete clarity. You aren’t alone. I long for clarity because God keeps asking me to trust him and to risk. And it is painful. It would seem so much easier if he would just spell things out a bit. But as we all walk by faith, we are tasting more of him.
I do not know what your future holds, but I trust fully in the promise of Scripture that if you commit all of your ways to the Lord, he will set your path straight (Proverbs 3:6). For me, that has typically looked like only knowing the exact next step on the path and learning to trust him with the darkness ahead.
The restlessness we feel is not a bad thing. I believe it is the longing and passion in us for God-for more. It could push us to move forward, to live epic lives that were designed before the foundations of the earth were laid.
The stirrings of a revolution are in the works. God is gathering a force, and change is coming. It comes from him. But a lot of us, if we’re honest, are afraid. We hold close to our chest the new and scary and uncomfortable visions that may just be from God and play a small part in something bigger.
But we need each other.
We need some understanding of ourselves and the empty places around us.
But mostly we just need faith in a real, unseen God.
I believe that together, if we all will quit comparing ourselves to others and just follow our Jesus, something is going to happen. A generation who has quietly been reading and longing and dreaming and falling in love with God is about to wake up. We are about to let God run wild through us.
We live once, and then we meet God. We want to live lives that matter for eternal things. We want to be a generation who followed with reckless abandon a God who was real to us.
So let’s get after it.
Do you believe you could do great works for God?
What is holding you back from running with the dreams God has put in you?
