Practicality and Faith

“I hope eagerly for what I do not see and I wait for it with perseverance.”  Romans 8:25

I have mentioned before that I am believing God for some big big things.  I know we are not supposed to put a timeline on God, this particular thing has a natural deadline.  If God doesn’t step in, we have to make other plans.  We are closing in on that time very rapidly.

I am continuing to ask God and believe Him for those things I have been praying for.  But if He says, wait…  I need to begin making other arrangements.  And I am bit lost.  How do I keep believing while making other plans?  Does making those other plans mean I don’t really believe?

I’m a little, okay, a lot, confused.  What do you think?  How do you balance believing God and “living in the real world?”

  1. What Can I Do Today?

    Remember that His time is perfect and perhaps He has a reason for keeping your beacon in a dimly lit place until He is able to install a new light in your place. Make your plans flexible so that your obedience is quick to His lead. Meditate on Psalm 37:3-11 🙂

  2. I've been pondering this very same question lately. Moving in three directions without a clear leader is getting the better of me these days.

  3. Lori, Sorry you are struggling with the same thing. It is a hard place to be.
