God is at work behind the scenes

(Continued)

Faithfulness to God and listening each day can reassure us of God’s timing played out in real circumstances over and over again. It only takes a little listening, praying, and asking God for wisdom and, in retrospect, we will be amazed at how He works through our lives. It has nothing to do with seminary education; it has everything to do to discipleship, and listening to the nudges of God’s Spirit. Why not start looking, listening and anticipating God’s presence today and be amazed at the Spirit’s ability to work in lives at just the right moment, when needed?

The Rev. J. Loring Carpenter is the interim general secretary of the International Christian Maritime Association.
