Stepping into God’s purpose may feel like the pinnacle of the journey. Finally you’ve arrived. In reality is simply a beginning.
God’s purposes are fluid, always moving, like a wheel within a wheel they always reveal new colours and facets of His person and glory. There is never an end to the wonder of walking with Jesus.
In our entrepreneurial journey Isaac arrives after many days at Beersheba, the seventh well of the oath – perfectly aligning prosperity with purpose.
God’s voice and direction are so clear here, and worship is the only appropriate response to the goodness and generosity of God.
“And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake. And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD…”(Genesis 26:24–25 KJV)
I love the detail that follows Isaac’s altar-building:
“He pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged a well.”
Isaac set Himself in place, but not in a palace. He understood the nature of pilgrimage and that as a steward God might move him to fresh pastures at any time. Even God’s present purpose and prosperous rewards can become stumbling blocks if we trust in them instead of the One who owns and gave them to us. He pitched His tent.
And dug another well.
Even in what seems a perfect arrangement, a favourable outcome, an over and above all we can ask or think destination, there is more to be discovered.
They dug another well.
Deep will always call to deep.
Even the deepest human diggings fail to scratch the surface of the wonders to be found in our Father’s embrace.
Even when the waters flow the call to know Him more resounds:
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts” (Psalm 42:7 KJV)
His purposes never end spanning the ages and reaching into eternity.
Failure is not a full stop. Nor success an exclamation point.
Your journey continues…
JESUS is far bigger, far better, and a great deal more magnificently terrifyingly awesome than we can even begin to comprehend! His wonders never end.
