For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 NLT
Sometimes I’ll be dreaming up ways that God could answer a prayer or concern I have. I feel His eyes on me, smiling. “I’m doing it again, aren’t I? I’m trying to figure everything out. Seems I’d learn by now. There is absolutely no way I will ever figure out how You’re going to do it, but I trust that You will and I’m going to rest now!”
There are times I’ll just be talking with the Lord about some concerns I have, before I know it, He answers me in such a unique and special way that I just know it’s Him. I hadn’t told anyone else, so I know it could be no one else.
I talked a little bit about expectations and trusting the Lord, but let me tell you that until you step out on that limb and know that God is able to keep the limb up even when the rest of the tree falls, you’ll never know true trust. If you’re willing to believe, all things are possible to those who believe.
Either trust God or not but don’t hang on that fence any longer. Either believe His Word to be true or not but don’t hang out in the middle to just watch. I believe that my steps are ordered by the Lord! That means that regardless of what happens, whether or not it makes sense, it’s all a part of a plan that is larger then I am. I mean seriously, people! Look what He has to work with!
Don’t blame God when you’re the one who took the easy or logical way. I believe we are standing under a sky black with the promise of rain. We can run to shelter or get drenched, our choice.
Sometimes doing the safe thing isn’t always the right thing. Remember that David chose to run toward the giant when he could have run away. Don’t run from your destiny, run toward it & just trust God.
