Why am I shocked when God is God?  I pray and ask for His affirmation in my life and then I act stunned that He responds as God. 

Am I confusing you?  Hang on, I have a point or three.  God has a plan for my life and I know that . I ask Him for direction and when He makes the next step clear, I’m stunned.  And then I want more. 

I want God to show me His whole plan.  I want to know EXACTLY how this whole thing will play out, but that’s not the way He works.  I have to wait for the whole plan. 

It’s in the waiting that I seek His will.

It’s in the waiting that He builds me up and prepares for the path that He has for me.

It’s in the waiting that I find His strength to take the next step that He will show me – when it’s time.

What about you?  Are you waiting for that next step?
