..ahead of us..clearing the way for us..preparing everything that we need before we need it. Is that difficult to believer? If you are honest you will say yes. Why? Because we feel like we are on our own..that we must come up with all the answers..that everything depends upon what we do. We seem to have things backward.
We are focused on our activity and ideas instead of the activity of God. A key to quieting an anxious heart is making that shift. When our circumstances close in on us.. we have choices. We can either try to come up with answers or we can turn to our God and ask Him to intervene for us. Our human nature wants to rely on itself..God’s way is the the opposite. He wants us to depend upon Him for everything.
Life with God continually brings us to the edge..what will happen next? How will this problem get solved? How will we make it? Who will help us? These questions try to surface and rob us of the confidence we have in Him. The answer is always the same..He is with us and He will do everything that He has promised to do as we trust Him. He will not fail..He is faithful..His grace is sufficient..He has not forgotten.
Look down the road in front of you. What do you see? There He is! Arranging everything perfectly..
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend upon your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
