Continuing from yesterday’s post with thoughts about calling from Catalyst (see here).

Today’s lesson is very simple but also very hard.

Think Long.

That’s it.   Don’t look at tomorrow, don’t look at the next day, don’t think about next Sunday.  (Disclaimer – you do need to think about those – but they aren’t the focus of your calling).  

God spent literally thousands of years working out the plan that began when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden.

It says in the Bible that to God, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day.  

If God thinks that way, why should we, when thinking about what God is calling us to, think of shorter time frames?    God might spend 20 years preparing you for something.    God had Moses spend 40 years in the desert preparing him for his role in rescuing the Israelites from Egypt.  

So, Think Long.   As you are contemplating what God might be calling you to, think big and think long.

Then you will be thinking more like what God does.

And isn’t that what IT is all about?
