The Canvas Revealed

Paint PalletThere comes a time in the pursuit of every dream that all that can be done has been done. A point in time that the outcome is pre-determined before it is realized. A point in time that the painted canvas is complete, but not yet revealed.

At this point, the outcome can no longer be controlled, manipulated, or improved. It will be what it will be. For the leader only a couple questions matter… “Was I obedient to God’s leadership? Did I fully and faithfully steward the time, money, resources, and people God provided to accomplish His vision?” Freedom comes through faithfulness. At this point, the outcome is determined by God. For the canvas was painted by God and His servant provided the paint.

In four days, the image of Jesus’ bride the church will be revealed. She will be beautiful. God formed her. And gave her life. God grows His church – not me. I have been obedient and faithful. But the outcome of my labor is not my responsibility, it is God’s. I now sit back, having done all I can do and wait in exciting anticipation for God to reveal the work of His hands. The canvas is painted in heaven and in a few days will be revealed on earth.
