Today I was realizing in a new way that God is truly ahead of us on the road of life. He is paving the way for us and He knows exactly what will happen to us and when. His perfect plan is unfolding a day at a time and He continues to lead us as long as we want to follow Him and trust Him with all our doubts and fears.
These worries and anxieties spring from our desire to be in control and to understand the way God does things..something that is impossible. He tells us that “his ways are not ours.” Yet we continue to use our finite minds to understand the finite. We can’t do it.
So as we follow Him and He asks us to do things that seem risky, we can remember that it is part of the larger story that God is writing for our lives. He doesn’t explain why to us..He asks us to follow His lead and to join Him in what He is doing. Later He may reveal how it all fits together in ways we could never imagine.
I have developed a fondness for the mystery of our faith. When God gives me even tiny glimpses of how all of our stories intersect and the great plan He has for each of us.. I find myself amazed over and over again.
Our great God has everything under control..our part is to trust and obey. To seek Him and to believe in His goodness even when we see through a glass darkly. He will not fail or abandon us. He is for us and with us during every dark season and promises to bring us out into the light again.
Live fully today trusting Him to unfold your future..He is already there.
“I will always show you where to go.
I’ll give you a full life in the emptiest of places—
firm muscles, strong bones.
You’ll be like a well-watered garden,
a gurgling spring that never runs dry.” Isaiah 58:11
