pressing in for guidance

I'm reflecting today about what we are being called to build here in Norman, a prayer house for the city & region, whose primary roles are to gather intercessors to pray and to wash the feet of the body of Christ in any way we are able. I love what we have been called to do! 

Though, at times I feel like Gideon, asking the Lord for a sign every step of the way. But you know what? He gave Gideon signs of his movement again and again and again. He continually prompted him with his words and his guidance. 

"Arise, go down against the camp, for I have given it into your hand. But if you are afraid to go down, go down to the camp with Purah your servant. And you shall hear what they say, afterward your hands shall be strengthened to go down against the camp." Judges 7:9-11

He loves to speak to us! He loves to strengthen us with us! He loves to share with us his words and his ways! Thank you, Lord, for your faithful and gentle hand. Even when we don't know next steps, you are faithful to speak, you are faithful to show us the path.
