It’s okay to ask God what’s next? As long as it’s not at the expense of what’s now? Too often we ask Him, “What do You want me to do with my life?” and don’t ask, “What do You want me to do?” It’s easy to put off what God may be saying for another time but God’s promises for tomorrow don’t get started until we hear and respond to what He is saying for today. His future for us is built on the intimacy we embrace now.

We are created to partake in an intimate, one of a kind relationship with our creator. Being with Him is the entire purpose of our lives. Why do we spend so much time apart from Him or doing things for Him at the expense of being with Him? Why do so many of us put this off until we get to Heaven when we could be with Him right now?
