New Horizons

“But let him ask in faith with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will ever receive anything from the Lord.” (James 1:6-8)

You cannot move in all directions at once – and you cannot travel far beyond where you are if you move first in one direction, then in another constantly.

To reach your goal you must be committed to go in the direction of it, overcoming obstacles in the way. You must desire to reach your goal, or you will never even get a good start toward it. The Word and all of nature affirm that too – seeking God and God’s principles unrelentingly – perseveringly – is the key to survival: more than survival: to fulfillment.

Only one goal can bring fulfillment; only one goal can so inspire as to bring peace and joy in the pursuit of it: to seek the will of the Father. There are many ways to seek His will, to find His will: every physical manifestation, every law of nature, every mystery of the spiritual world is able to reveal His will to those who desire to know it.

Prayer of Response: Father, enable me to desire Thy will above all else. Enable me to pursue Thy will, to find Thy will, to do Thy will. I know you love me, I know you desire to lead me to new levels of love – and I desire to follow you to them. Help me to go there, taking many with me – delighting in discoveries of unsuspected worlds as we come into sight of new horizons. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
