Can anyone tell me someone from the Bible who is praised for forging ahead on their own? Certainly, in general terms we’re told to get on with our daily work and have common sense. But I want a specific person from the Bible who pre-planned….. I can’t think of one.
What IS praised is obedience. When you hear the Call, you obey it. God makes the provision for His plans – you show up. I was going to say “instant obedience”, and that is the ideal. But God is amazing, and He puts up with a good bit of, “is that really You, God?” “Are You really sure you want me? Because I suck” from His creations.
So, anyone – got anything? I’m putting 2 and 2 together over here, and I’d appreciate correction if I’m off base.
