At times God would show me the next step to take without revealing the complete plan. Yet, to be honest, periods occurred where I wanted to see the entire picture before I took the now step I knew God was calling me to take. However, I have learned a very important truth: Obedience to God’s now step will always lead to God’s next step. A pastor once stated the following: “One of the greatest things God will ever ask you to do is the last thing He asked you to do.” Remember, whatever step God is prodding you to take, make sure you take it. For again, Obedience to God’s now step will always lead to God’s next step.

“Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person’s seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next.”
