There is nothing unknown to God. Our human measurements and use of knowledge simply do not apply to the LORD Almighty. He never loses track of anything, never wonders what to do next and does not need deductive reasoning to figure things out. He is the creator and source of all things and His knowledge is perfect right now. This is very comforting since there is so much I must learn. But as His child, I may ask and receive His counsel. Therefore, my daily pursuit must be to seek His face, follow His commands and do His bidding. LORD God, King of the Universe, I wish to continually sit at Your feet as I go about my tasks this new day. Grant me seeing eyes, hearing ears and an obedient heart.
John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim's Progress from This World, to That Which Is to Come” is an allegory written while he was imprisoned for his Christian beliefs. Until we reach the Golden Gates of Heaven we must progress in our walk of faith here on earth. Each time I think I understand God’s ways and means He turns the diamond and new facets of His splendor emerge. For the true believer there is no spiking the ball in the end zone on this side of Glory; there is no settling down where we are in this life. Not only am I tolerant of this constantly changing status, I am genuinely thankful for it. I am being pulled toward eternal purpose that I cannot fathom but I instinctively know awaits me. So I’ll keep my shoes on until it’s over. Lord, though I struggle in Your arms, You never let me go. Keep me moving toward Your perfect will. Help me never miss a turn or stop unnecessarily. Keep me progressing toward Your perfect will.
