UNDERSTANDING BETTER …
In any faith journey, we do not not seek our own will. When “I” replaces “God’s” in our faith journeys, our respective and collective journeys no longer includes God but completely us. In the faith journeys, the end of each tentative journey may most often not visible to the eyes. We will never understand when we refuse to begin the journey because the journey’s vision is not clear.
Abraham left Haran in the most uncertain situation for the land he was to be shown by God. Today, many would demand to have seen the land before setting out.
God’s ways are not our ways. His thoughts are different from ours .One of the simple lessons I have learnt in the university of life is that; God’s will may be found even in the most unpleasant situations and circumstances that seemingly shrouds our faith journey. Unless we trust and obey, we shall never understand it better.
N.B: It’s been a little while.
