Obscurity the state of being unknown, inconspicuous, or unimportant; the quality of being difficult to understand; a thing that is unclear.
There are days when my life looks completely opposite of what God has spoken over me. There are days when I feel like I am standing still while everything is happening to me and around me. There are days when I want to go back to the familiar to avoid the press.
But thanks be to God who said we are to walk by faith and not by sight. I am reminded of Jesus when Paul spoke of him in Colossians 3:4 (MSG) saying he was content in obscurity. He knew who he was, being fully God and fully man. He knew that he was on assignment and did not let circumstance determine if he would continue. In his human state even he questioned God asking if there was another way that mankind could be redeemed. But I like how he followed up this request saying, never the less thy will be done.
We are believers must grow and go forward in obscurity, in the place where opposition stands and dares us to make a move and say, never the less thy will be done. We find comfort in knowing that God is faithful and that He in the spirit has completed every phase of the promise and that now it is up to us to line up with His word to obtain in. In light of this I want to encourage you to press. Stay faithful, keep practicing generosity, and keep God’s word before you. He who started a good work in you is faithful to complete it.
