The Life of Faith

Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. It is literally a life of faith, not of understanding and reason- a life of knowing Him who calls us to go. Faith is rooted in the knowledge of a Person, and one of the biggest traps we fall into is the belief that if we have faith, God will surely lead us to success int he world.
A life of faith is not a life of one glorious mountain top experience after another, like soaring on eagles' wings, but a life of day-in, day-out consistency; a life of walking without fainting. It is a faith that has been tried and proved and has withstood the test.

From My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, March 19

We can find great comfort in NOT knowing Jesus' definition of success. I have a feeling HE has a different word for it. Surrender is so counter-cultural. Peace, peace, peace.
