Ready … Fire … Aim!
by Steve Trullinger
Yes, you read the title correctly! The order of the words in this familiar sequence of commands is purposely altered to make a point. Your Abba desires to free you from the trap of “all ducks in a row” preparation before you can expect a miracle to happen at your command.
When I was a vocational physicist I usually needed to understand something before I was ready to believe it. Soon after I was saved, I was blessed with freedom from Abba to believe before I understood (if that should occur in the future – it doesn’t always).
What I learned was this:
Your “wait times” will be shorter when you do not predicate your belief upon understanding!
Abba is eager to show himself strong on your behalf (see 2 Chron. 16:9a [ESV]) to accomplish a miracle and will amaze you when you have decided to trust him before you have understanding (if ever!) of how such a thing could happen. Remember Proverbs 3:5 as a wise piece of advice:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Prov 3:5)
Whole-hearted trust in the Lord enables your choices to believe, in spite of your possible lack of understanding, and this in turn paves the way for miracles in your life and ministry (see Mark 9:23).
So, make a choice today to trust your Lord with all your heart and then get ready for the activation of miracles in your life! The need for your own understanding will deliciously fade away!
