Called to Act While In the Dark

Jeremiah obeyed God instantly, without questioning. How willing are you to go along with things that you don't understand? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1067).

There was once a little boy who lived in a family that was having difficulty paying the rent. The little boy said instantly "Here's my piggy bank daddy, use it to pay the rent." The father had to explain that 74 pennies would not satisfy the rent obligation.  I have at times seen myself as this little child with a few pennies confronting a need greater than my limited resources could possibly fill.  It is at this point that I've had to understand that God does not require that I have controlling leverage, but that I be faithful. Such matters inherently involve great risk. There is no clear understanding how the situation can be helped with my comparatively few resources. The charge becomes to obey God--and proceed mostly in the dark--with faith.
