God first started speaking to me about France decades ago. There probably was more He wanted to share with me about France but honestly, I wasn't asking any questions. I just knew that there was a burning desire to be there and I didn't know why.
So, after decades of knowing that God had some plans for me in France why didn't I go or at least press in to Him to find out why He wanted me there? Honestly, I didn't take the time to plan a trip and I didn't take the time to seek God regarding His plans.
Taking the time to dig deeper is so important if you want to know God's heart about any situation. Too often we seek Him as an afterthought and we miss out on His input on the situation. I don't know about you but I don't want to live my life with God's insight as a last resort. I want His input first in all that I do. It's the only way I can move forward confidently because I know that I am doing His will.
I finally followed His leading and made it to France. Why now? I'm more mature in my walk with Him now and the desire was still there, strong as ever. I knew that it was time. I am still waiting for Him to reveal why I'm here. While here I have noticed that there's something "off" about this place. I don't know what it is but He knows and a fellow Jesus lover reminded me of the spiritual darkness in France and suggested that maybe I'm here to pray for France. France, I pray that your people turn their hearts to God, in Jesus' name. Amen. Stay tuned…
