Oswald put his finger on the trigger this morning when he said
We are so busy telling God where we would like to go... Readiness for God means that we are prepared to do the smallest thing or the largest thing— it makes no difference. It means we have no choice in what we want to do, but that whatever God’s plans may be, we are there and ready.
We aren't as concerned with where we are as God is.
We are, however, obsessed with where we are going.
We feel it is less spiritual to be grounded in today.
It is unspiritual to long ONLY for mountaintops.
Oswald ended his thoughts by proclaiming it this way:
A ready person never needs to get ready— he is ready.
