Doing & Knowing
We sometimes presume that to do God's will, we must know God's will. But, in fact, we must do God's will in order to come to know His will:
About the middle of the feast Jesus went up into the temple and began teaching. The Jews therefore marveled, saying, “How is it that this man has learning, when he has never studied?” So Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. If anyone's will is to do God's will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority. The one who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true..." (John 7:14-18a)
On this particular day, may you and I set our wills to do God's will and trust that everything else is already in His all-capable hands. Really, this path He's set us for us - of unknowing - is far more interesting than the other one we so often wish for: making our own way.
Today, let's relish the mysteries of going with the Way, on the Way, even though we may not know our next exact step.
He is with us!
And He is good!
