How many times do we think of being "in the way" as a bad thing? We feel insulted when people are "in the way" at the store. We feel frustrated when people are "in the way" while driving down the road. We feel annoyed when we find our children's toys "in the way" because we just tripped over them for the umpteenth time. I know. I've had those feelings many times! And on the mission field, sometimes those feelings are magnified. The Lord has been showing me something the last few days, however. I have so much I want to share with you this morning, and I struggled to know what I should say. So, I'll just share my heart with you this morning and let you in on what God has been teaching me this week.....I've been learning that when you serve the Lord, being "in the way" is a good thing - a very good thing! Do you remember the story of how Rebekah came to be the bride of Isaac? The servant declares in Genesis 24:27b, "I being in the way, the LORD led me..."
"I being in the way, the LORD led me..." Genesis 24:27b
