Obedience today means God's guidance in tomorrow

"Let us not make the mistake of directing our energies toward what is not today's business.  
The best preparation for the future is always the conscientious carrying out of what is given us today.  
Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today?  
How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person's seemingly small act of obedience!  
Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend on it, you will be shown what to do next." 
~Elisabeth Elliot, excerpts from Quest for Love, chapter 20
