Part 1 "Moving our Feet"

Have you ever asked a question receiving an answer, but to make sure you ask again, again... and yet again?
This is what I have been doing with the direction and timing of what God is calling us to do.  Even though I get an answer in different ways, the result is the same.   Actually the "asking" isn't the hardest part, the "doing" is! And this is where I am at right now.
The church we visited this week had an amazing message. I can't help but  marvel at the timing and know with out reserve that this is yet another way that the Lord is speaking to us.
 
So the verse was Habakkuk 3:2.. He talked about how we read about the miracles in the bible and how each of them had to be willing to be molded, to be the putty that God uses to shape and form.  But, that in our day we can experience the same miracles and presence of God, when the prayer of our heart is to renew them in our day. The experiences that we can have by being willing and ready to already have an answer of YES upon our hearts to do what God asks us to do before we even know what it is he is requiring of us to do. When we are in a place of willingness we are able to do big things to advance the kingdom having an opportunity of being the church. The church is not a specific building or a denomination but the hands and feet of Jesus. 
 
Then the played a song by Jeremy Riddle called
 "God Moves in a Mysterious Ways" 
 
 God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform
He plants his footsteps in the sea, and
Rides upon the storm

Deep in unsearchable mines of
Never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs and
Works His sovereign will

And Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings, yeah, in blessings
And in blessings on your head

Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan his work in vain
For God is His own interpreter
And He will make it plain
In His own time, in His own way
In His own time, in His own way
  
The words Reflecting upon my heart is
"HIS OWN TIME & HIS OWN WAY" and how he works in "MYSTEROUS WAY"
 
 So as we were driving around  in Tennessee reflecting on what we had heard; we were radio surfing and came upon a sermon with Chuck Swindol... He was talking about the 5 results we get from when we WAIT on God and HIS TIMING.....

                  1) We gain Perception Psalm 27:14 :Image result for Psalm 27:14
 
2) We gain Provision  Psalm 121: 1-2

Through this time of waiting; I have gained perspective, provision, power, perception, & His protection. It is amazing to me to see the hand of God work so perfectly.  The fear of the unknown can cripple us, we can loose our focus easily when we begin to look and see situations through the eyes of the world around us. We can miss opportunities and most importantly we can miss drawing closer to the very one that withholds us in his RIGHT HAND....It is challenging none the less to seek Gods' Will and say with a willing heart ; "I will say YES, to whatever you call me to do"
But then actually Move your feet to do it.

Visiting Tennessee this weekend was just that.   We have been asking God for direction, to guide our footsteps.  Traveling there was important to us for many reasons.  Although, for a moment I was discouraged as we didn't get some of our questions answered... A friend quickly reminded me that if we Had all the answers we wouldn't need to rely on Gods strength!!! As I reflected on that statement I was  reminded that all we were doing was moving our feet!!  God is going before us to prepare a way for what he is calling us to do. Our job is trust him and continue to be a willing servant ready to MOVE OUR FEET!!
