I have been praying faithful for God’s will. Over the past five years, I have learned over and over again that God’s will is always the step I don’t see coming.
God blesses us in ways we don’t see coming when we act in faithfulness and give up the reins of control. His plan is deeper and better than mine can ever be. His contains wisdom and longterm vision that I don’t possess.
So, I keep taking each step with the comfort in the knowledge and belief that He knows better than I. After all He has said..
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11
The key is to be patient and not get in the way of God’s plan. Don’t think I know better or think what God is asking is impossible or ridiculous and try to make my own path or solution. (For a warning on how that can turn out, check out Sarai’s story in Genesis 16)
This still rings true. In the last week, God has taken me on a major left turn that I didn’t see coming. You know what? It is yet again proof that His hand in my life is way better than when my hands are in control.
His blessings (especially the ones that come out of left field) are so humbling and continue to remind me that I have a Father who loves me, a Father who goes before me, a Father who has a plan for me, and a Father to whom I owe my soul.
