As you read through the Bible there are decades between some verses. It is that in-between time that fascinates me. For in that in-between time babies were born, people died, couples married, things were invented; people planted and harvested crops; women took care of their families. Lots and lots of life happened but it isn't mentioned. It doesn't need to be mentioned. This isn't because it is insignficant. It is just because God's people were living the lives He gave them. Some did a great job at it. Others didn't. Kind of like us.
There will be a lot of years in our lives where we can say we are doing what Paul told us to do in 1 Thessalonians 4:11 which says, "Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life. . . and work with your hands."
Our culture promotes excitement and busyness and activities. I had a conversation with some Believers who lived near NYC and they were speaking about their trip to a sparsely populated area and complained that there was nothing to do.
Are we so addicted to activity that we think our life is meaningless if we aren't busy? Or do we think we are insignificant when we living day to day faithfully doing the things we are called to do?
These are traps from the enemy and the world system to breed discontent.
Often when the surface, the part of life we can see, is quiet, there is great activity happening in the unseen realm. Don't get caught into thinking ordinary days are just ordinary. Days lived for Christ are never just ordinary. He will use anything we give Him.
Just be faithful. A faithful life over decades makes a huge impact.
