Has God told you to go? Go there. However, if He has not, then you are where you are supposed to be. Do not seek to be somewhere you are not. Work it out, where you are, in joy.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Do all things without complaining and disputing. Phil 2:12b-14 NKJV
We must really “work it out”. The word Paul uses is katergazomai.
- to perform, accomplish, achieve
- to work out i.e. to do that from which something results
- to fashion i.e. render one fit for a thing
It is not a free ride. We are meant to struggle and strain, with fear and trembling. Do not complain, do not argue. It is not for your interest you are working. It is His. We can, however, rest in the fact that He knows ours.
