You must find the will of God implored my new brother in Christ. I had just been baptized that Sunday and I did not really know what Ed meant by that remark. But then there were many things I didn't understand as a new babe in Christ. As the years went by, I matured in stature and wisdom. I had recently graduated from Caldwell Seminary and was eager to serve God in whatever direction he led.
I prayed each night and asked him, God, what is it that I'm supposed to be doing? I knew that the fervent prayer of a righteous man was effective but all I got was silence. Although I received no answer, it didn't discourage me because I knew that God worked on his own time frame and I also knew that God had a plan for every person’s life. Then one summer night after a long prayer session, the answer came unexpectedly. It was like a bolt of lightning – a flash and then it was gone. But I heard it distinctly as if God had spoken directly into my ear.
You must find my will.
