Like the First Gleam of Dawn

Sometimes it seems, we are in full seasons of questions. Mark and I have been in that season for a while now. Some of those questions have been answered with directives. Some times those directives result in obedience without understanding and therefore more questions.
At times we are given a GLIMPSE of understanding....and sometimes that too, brings more questions.
For me, this scripture takes me back to a place of resting in obedience. Not resting in understanding. In that place of obedience, "the first gleam" of understanding, broadens and brightens until there is complete understanding. 
We so often want the understanding, then we will obey. Most of the time, God is calling us to walk in obedience through the darkness, and when He brings revelation, we will be right where we are supposed to be.
As a person who likes to keep her world in order and control...
this brings me peace.

Oh, I so agree! I am reminded that God says in the Bible that Obedience is better than sacrifice. He loves our obedience!
