Do you remember in High School taking all those tests in order to reveal what path you were best suited to prepare for in your life. These are the tests designed to let you know if you are good at academics or at working with your hands. The counselor would glean what you are best at all from filling out a series of questions and filling in the little bubbles with your number 2 pencil.
As Christians we sometimes have the same problem, we do not know what God wants us to do with our lives so we pick up this book or that questionnaire all geared at showing us what God’s will is for our lives. We live in a world that needs to know now what is going on, we do not like to wait for anything. Think about where we would be without the microwave oven and the drive thru window at your favorite fast food restaurant. I think a lot of our problems today stem from our inability to slow down and take it easy.
When it comes to God’s will for our lives sometimes we have to step back and take it easy until God reveals what it best for us and what area it is best for us to focus our vision on. Some people spend most of their live waiting for their place in god’s work to be revealed. In my church I have seen people who were retired from one job suddenly enlightened by God o what is to be to course for the remaining years of my life. Myself I an in my forties and have finally discovered that God wants me to teach and to teach others about Him and His love.
The point is that eventually the vision God has for your life will come, but until them we need to understand that God’s vision is eternal not ethereal as ours is. That is the vision we are to follow until God reveals what He wants us to do with our lives
