From Oswald Chambers :

We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. As soon as we abandon ourselves to God and do the task He has placed closest to us, He begins to fill our lives with surprises. When we become simply a promoter or a defender of a particular belief, something within us dies. That is not believing God — it is only believing our belief about Him.

There’s more to the devotional.  I recommend the whole thing.  But I thought this part was particularly good.

Should it not be a “determinate” period of time?

No, because it’s not a euphemism for “day”. I have no idea when the next quote will rear its head.

But I did stick with the meme of using $0.50 words to avoid having to pay royalties to Jerry.
