I don’t believe that we could handle God exposing to us His full plan at one time. That’s why He references footsteps in so many verses in Psalms. (Psalms 119:133, Psalms 37:23, Psalms 119:105 just to name a few) God is very clear when He talks about footsteps – implying direction and destination. In fact, in Jeremiah 29:11 He says that He has an expected end for us.
Scripture teaches us that God’s ways are higher than our ways, yet He tells us in the new testament that we should have the mind of Christ. That may seem contradictory but I look at it this way. One reason that God’s ways are higher than our ways is because God’s ways are outside of time. That why in Hebrews 11:1 He says faith is now. Down here on earth, we are limited by time – it serves as a governor for us, and if we are not careful it can limit us in our experiencing the supernatural. Putting on the mind of Christ simply means renewing your mind to the Word of God as referenced in Romans 12 and saying what God says. It means that we deal with the limitation of time down here on earth by the leading of the Spirit of God. If we would just say what God says we would win every time!
The point of this blog post is to let you know that God is going to reveal His righteousness to you step by step and it is going to take faith to make the steps. That’s why the Word says in Romans 1:17 that the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith. You have to be at the place where you trust God for the next step even if to you it seems like a step into the dark. You know that it can’t be though because the scriptures teach us that there is no darkness in God at all. The challenge that we have is that we want to see all the way to the end of the road. We want to know the expected end that God has for us and the beginning of the journey, but we forget that God is the Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and the end. He knows and He will reveal it to us step by step, bit by bit and piece by piece from faith to faith.
Our job is be patient and let patience have her perfect work so that we can be perfected in Christ wanting nothing. Be at peace with the step that He has shown you, knowing that He will lead you all the way to and through the work that He has for you to do for the kingdom of God.
