“It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the king’s privilege to discover them.”
Proverbs 25:2 NLT
There are many times that I have received hints or thoughts from the Lord about a ministry or business idea and they have been enlightening but somewhat vague. What I have learned over the years is that the Lord will drop things to us but often will not give us all of the details of what He has planned because he wants us to enjoy discovering something new. It is His privilege to conceal things, but if you ask He will reveal things to you at the right time. It was well over ten years ago that the Lord gave me a dream about my purpose. He told me that I was called to build a great company and then I would plant a church in the suburbs and then one in the city. I remember thinking at the time why would I go through all that trouble to start a church in the suburbs and then let that go and start another one in the city. Then about a year or two later, the technology became available for churches to use broadcast technology over the internet to simulcast services so they can have the same services at multiple campuses. The Lord showed me aspects of this before it was being done or before I understood it. I also didn’t know what suburb I would start in until years later. I really didn’t worry about it at the time because I knew the company I was running was not really that great at the time and we had a lot of work to do, but eventually the company excelled and the time came for me to start seeking Him for the vision of the church. And when I did in 2012, He started sharing more details and gave me the location and name for Create Church in Richardson, Texas. It was great privilege to discover all that He had in mind and I know there is much more to discover every month as He reveals His plans layer by layer. Keep seeking His plan for your life. Although many of His plans may be concealed at this time, they will get revealed as you seek Him and inquire about your future.
“God looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God.”
Psalms 53:2 NLT
Father, I thank you for looking down at me and allowing me to see all that you have my future. Lord, I look to you now and praise you for all that You are and are doing in my life. Restore me, strengthen me, and give me vision for the future. I am seeking You, Your heart, and Your will for my life. I look to you and you alone for my future. I bless Your name today Lord. May you be exalted in every area and facet of my life.
