The last few years have been marked by this idea of being in the Hands of the Almighty! However over the last week I have had a heightened sense of how real this is. This last week we have been placed in situations where we have to make life-changing decisions and rest in the reality that God must provide for us.
So often we have great plans and we hope that God will come and join us in those plans, but it seems that rarely God works this way. Rather God is at work fulfilling His plan and we must patiently wait for its unfolding. This week has again revealed to me how true this is. To be honest at times this brings great comfort to my life but many times it keeps me siting on the edge of my seat praying. At the end of the day this is great because we grow more dependent on Christ.
Tonight I find myself praying for faith to trust God. To understand and know His promises in regards to His provision and His plan for our lives. I so badly want to trust in promises like, “seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you,” or the great promise of Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper and not harm you…” I am amazed at how hard it is to be patient and wait for God’s plan to unfold. Recently I was reading a Psalm and I apologize for not remebering which one but I was struct by how many times it said to wait on the Lord.
Hear my family and I sit, waiting on the Lord! Striving to live by faith knowing that God is in control! Really it is hard, deep inside though I find it exciting because at the end of the day there is no more excitig life than the one that rests in the hands of the Almighty!
