There are times when you must stay in the background or perform your work behind the scenes. Then there are times when you have to perform and take center stage. Don't think it's strange. God has a way of propelling us to new roles and to new levels at any time.
Timing is important in all you do. Most of us are guilty of making the right move at the wrong time. It felt right, so we acted based upon our feelings alone. When doing this, mistakes are often created. Well, more like messes. A mess can become a bigger mess. Seeking God first in all we do and following His lead will help avoid the messes and provide great successes.
Working in the background or behind the scenes is usually necessary to prepare you for a greater role. Once the preparation is complete, God will give you a gentle nudge to move out front. If needed, He will push you on to center stage.
"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6,7
