Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go." (Psalm 32:8) To follow God's will requires faith and action. That, in turn, calls for risk and release. This is where things get personal; this is where we persevere and flesh out the will of God. Doing the will of God is rarely easy and uncomplicated. Instead, it is difficult and convoluted most of the time. And it's mysterious because we don't know where He is taking us, so we must bend our wills to His -- and most of us are not at all excited about bending. We'd much prefer resisting. That's why the Christian life is often such a struggle. I don't mean it's a constant marathon of misery, but it's a struggle between our will and His will. Someday, when we are caught up with the Lord in glory, we will finally be all the things we have longed to be. Until then, we live in this never-ending tension of give and take, push and pull!
