Stand Still

Stand still;
Keep the posture of an upright person,
Ready for action,
Expecting further orders,
Cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice;
And it will not be long ere God shall say to you
As distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel,
“Go forward.”
(Charles Spurgeon)

Well friends, I sure have been standing still a bunch lately, because there was no point in trying to move ahead when I couldn’t use one arm, drive, and cook, etc. Nope! I did a lot of standing still.
I was upright from doctor’s orders to make that effort. I was not ready for action because I couldn’t act. I definitely was not always cheerful or patient….and yet…

My March calendar is filled with appointments and speaking events. I guess that is God’s signal to say I am good to go. This three-months off has given me a deep and abiding rest so that I am ready to play a more active part in serving the Lord again.

Prayer-God, when its time for us to get back into “Go Forward Mode,” help us to recognize it and do it! Amen.
