Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. Proverbs 3:5 TPT
“I just don’t know what to do! If I do it this way, this could happen. If I do it that way, that could happen. I just need someone to tell me what I should do. I’m so tired of not knowing!” Have you ever been there? I have! It’s truly a struggle and sometimes you just want to throw in the towel and quit!
But there is someone in you that is there to help you with that. When Jesus left his disciples, He told them to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Father. He was sending them the Holy Spirit to fill them with power and teach them all things needed to do their assignment on the earth. He didn’t leave them ill equipped nor would He you.
My friend, if you’re struggling with an answer right now, trust in the Lord completely. Don’t allow turmoil and strife to keep you paralyzed in fear of making the wrong move. God can’t guide your steps if you’re not moving! Take that first step, if it’s in the wrong direction, God will turn you.
It’s ok to make mistakes! Romans 8:28 (TPT) says, “So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.”
Do you see that? Every single detail of our lives has a purpose in His master plan for us, even the bad ones. He just asks that we trust Him in the process. I don’t even look at them as mistakes anymore, I try to see them as building blocks. Some way, some how, God will find a use for what I see as a botched up mess, to make something beautiful with it if I just trust His plan.
My opinion doesn’t matter! Your opinion doesn’t matter. Only God knows the plans He has for us and He is well able to use the things meant to destroy us, into things that make us beautiful and useful in His Kingdom.
I’m thankful Father for the plans You have for me. You’ve taken my chaos and turned it into beauty, a master work of art that only You could see value in. Every day, I trust You more. I don’t have to see the end because I know You do and if I listen, I will hear Your gentle voice directing each one of my steps. I will not live in turmoil any longer, stressing out over what I should or shouldn’t do. Your peace will be my compass. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.
