Obeying God

Today's My Utmost for His Highest used the scriptrure John 11:7-8:

7-Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.
8-His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

Just because we don't understand what God is telling is or what God is doing doesn't mean it is the wrong thing. We need to continue on in our Christian walk doing what God tells us. Oswald Chambers puts it this way: 

Are you debating whether to take a step in faith in Jesus or to wait until you can see how to do the thing yourself? Obey Him with glad reckless joy. When He says something and you begin to debate, it is because you have a conception of His honour which is not His honour. Are you loyal to Jesus or loyal to your notion of Him? Are you loyal to what He says, or are you trying to compromise with conceptions which never came from Him? "Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it."
