The right question comes from the right place

The right question comes from the right place

Acts 22:10 “What shall I do, Lord?” I asked. ‘“Get up,” the Lord said, “and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.”

There are so many prayers: This is what I want to do, Lord! Please make this happen for me, Lord! Bless my vision, Lord!

One of the most important questions we can ever ask God is the one that Saul asked.

The question comes as a direct result of being in the place of surrender, caught and brought low into submission, where God is greater and mightier than us and we dare not move, we can hardly whisper a prayer: What do you want from me, Lord? What shall I do, Lord?

What is the response from God?

Get up.

Go.

You will be told your assignment once you have done the first 2 things.

This is the missionary call: Get up, leave where you are, Go and as you do those 2 things along the way you will know what I have called you to do.

The missionary call can only come from the surrendered place.

The missionary call comes from a desire to do what God wants not what our desire is.

Get to the right place and ask the right question.
