     "He went out, not knowing where he was going" (Hebrews 11:8).
     Have you ever "gone out" in this way?  If so, there is no logical answer possible when anyone asks you what you are doing.  One of the most difficult questions to answer in Christian work is, "What do you expect to do?"  You don't now what you are going to do.  The only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing.  Continually examine your attitude toward God to see if you are willing to "go out" in every area of your life, trusting in God entirely.  It is this attitude that keeps you in constant wonder, because you don't know what God is going to do next.  Each morning as you wake, there is a new opportunity to "go out," building your confidence in God. not worry about your life...not about the body..." (Luke 12:22).  In other words, don't worry about the things that concerned you before you did "go out."
     Believe God is always the God you know Him to be when you are nearest to Him.  Then think how unnecessary and disrespectful worry is!  Let the attitude of your life be a continual willingness to "go out" in dependence upon God, and your life will have a sacred and inexpressible charm about it that is very satisfying to Jesus.  You must learn to "go out" through your convictions, creeds, or experiences until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God.
