Staying Put

The story of Isaac was a reminder that when God called the Israelites to stay put, they had to dig wells to do it. Sometimes God calls us out, out into grand adventures and far off locales. But sometimes God calls us to stay put just like Isaac, and frankly, it's often a much more difficult task. When that's your calling, of course you pray. Of course you search Scripture to understand the heart of God. Of course you seek out moments of silence and solitude to listen for the Spirit's guidance. You need it! But when you're called to stay put, to live in a culture constantly enticing you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show, a culture where the voice of God can so easily be lost in all the noise, it can be much, much more difficult to keep your faith vibrant and alive. When God calls us to stay put, we must keep digging spiritual wells.
