He went out, not knowing whither he went.

     — Hebrews 11:8

Have you been ""out"" in this way? If so, there is no logical statement
possible when anyone asks you what you are doing. One of the
difficulties in Christian work is this question – ""What do you expect
to do?"" You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing you
know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually revise your
attitude towards God and see if it is a going out of everything,
trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in
perpetual wonder – you do not know what God is going to do next. Each
morning you wake it is to be a ""going out,"" building in confidence on
God. ""Take no thought for your life,…nor yet for your body"" – take
no thought for the things for which you did take thought before you
""went out.""

Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell
you. God does not tell you what He is going to do; He reveals to you
Who He is. Do you believe in a miracle-working God, and will you go
out in surrender to Him until you are not surprised an atom at
anything He does?

Suppose God is the God you know Him to be when you are nearest to Him
– what an impertinence worry is! Let the attitude of the life be a
continual ""going out"" in dependence upon God, and your life will have
an ineffable charm about it which is a satisfaction to Jesus. You
have to learn to go out of convictions, out of creeds, out of
experiences, until so far as your faith is concerned, there is
nothing between yourself and God.

On this day...
