If there were no jolting surprises or puzzling life mazes, we would not need to be led.
But we do need to be led, and that means we must come before Him and agree with Him that our choices must be about obedience and not about security. Those who chose according to security lose sensitivity to the leading of the Indwelling Holy Spirit because their choices are guided by self-interest.
Soldier, this life is to be lived until the last breath is taken, and until we move on to the next life. That means that every second is about choice. There is no time to be wound-licking or insuring against any leap of faith.
Let Him know you are available, and do it aloud.
There is nothing else.
There is no one else.
