The post I wrote yesterday turned out to be just what took place. When I met with the principal and the other consultant about our previous day and told them what I felt about the direction we had discussed, they both agreed immediately that we needed to–stay the course of the original plan. In fact, the other consultant said, “That is such good wisdom!” I thought, “Well yes, it came straight from God.”
God is shedding some Light of late about following His Leadership in every aspect of living each day. As I began my devotions today and these past few days, my reflections show me how even difficult conversations (in my mind as I prepare for them) turn into ones which people thank me for them and we walk away with a handshake and preparations for the next time we get together. So much of this is following the nudges of God’s Spirit within.
My one devotional this morning which came from the work of Oswald Chambers, was entitled: Taking the Initiative Against Daydreaming. In it it says, “Daydreaming about something in order to do it properly is right, but daydreaming about it when we should be doing it is wrong.” I think this is the exact message God is wanting me to learn about obedience to His nudges. Pondering whether the nudge is the right thing to do is equivalent to daydreaming about it when we should be doing it–this is WRONG. God never gives us insights so we can make mistakes. Trusting God is truly at the heart of my recent learning.
