Making my own way or God making the way?

Although they can be stodgy, religious, or focused primarily on their own area of ministry, missionaries are among the most non-conforming genre of people I know. They are not unusual just for the sake of being unusual. They merely march to the beat of a different drummer.

All you have to do is talk to a few and you can see they aren’t carried along by the currents of opinion. And if you heve any doubt, visit their furlough housing. Where else on any given day, as long as it is not raining, do you see clothes drying on the line at every house!!???

Letting God bring it to pass in His own time

We all know that Moses was called to be the Deliverer of his people. But, we can see in this passage that this fact was not recognized when he tried to rescue his confederates from being mistreated.

Exodus 2

11 It happened in those days, when Moses had grown up, that he went out to his brothers, and looked at their burdens. He saw an Egyptian striking a Hebrew, one of his brothers.

12 He looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no one, he killed the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

13 He went out the second day, and behold, two men of the Hebrews were fighting with each other. He said to him who did the wrong, “Why do you strike your fellow?”

14 He said, “Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you plan to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian?” Moses was afraid, and said, “Surely this thing is known.”

15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and lived in the land of Midian, and he sat down by a well.

I don’t know about you, but I understand the calling on my life not being recognized! At 19 years old I went to a church leader telling him/her that I was called to the mission field. Their response? “Sure, everybody

If I had listened to that person I wouldn’t have gone where I did, do any of what I’ve done, nor be where/who I am today!!!

We need

  • to follow our hearts.
  • to be careful to speak encouraging words!

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for building up (edifying) as the need may be, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Don’t you be the one to squash someone’s dreams!
