On The Way: Being On The Way With Jesus - Day 9 with Ann Voskamp
Jesus once proclaimed to His disciples: “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.” ~John 14:6
So, the only way forward in this life is JESUS, the Way Himself.
DAY 9: You know you are on the way, the SACRED way, when you trust your every wilderness can be a place of clarifying stillness.
A place where you can be still and know that He is God.
The wilderness is where the Word is heard. And where we are formed into a person of the Word.
The answers to our prayers may not be found in “promised lands”, but in wildernesses.
God does not desert us in the desert. He woos us with a whispered Word. But we need to be still to hear Him there.
Isaiah 30:15 says, “This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”
You will only have as much strength as you have the strength to be still.
Knowing God is what makes you strong.
Isaiah 30:21 says, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying: This is the way; walk in it.”
A regular [daily] way of stillness leads to hearing what is the real way forward.
