When I finally decided to go to sleep last night after yesterday’s blog post, I remembered something I read in “You’re Already Amazing” by Holley Gerth.
Chapter five is about knowing where we are going in our life. A few pages into this chapter, she talks about being encamped in life much like the Israelites after Egypt. So this morning, I re-read that section because that was exactly what I was talking about yesterday.
God’s direction IS clear to us. We know exactly what God’s direction is right now. He just wants us to wait! Just to wait!
We’re being prepared to move forward, but it’s just not time yet. We are being prepared for the future, for the next season of our life, but it’s just not time yet.
It’s just not time yet!
I allowed my emotions to get the better of me this week. I allowed myself to doubt God.
I know His promises! I know His timing is perfect!
Our bills will certainly be paid through His power. We need to stop doing things in our own power and start trusting His power again.
After all, that’s what my theme for the new year is: Delighting in God’s power!
I’m not relaxing, enjoying, and delighting in God’s power when I’m stressed out and upset with God. Here I am, almost two weeks into 2013, and I’ve ignored my theme for this year. I’m forgetting God’s power.
We know what God is preparing us for, and we know God will work out the details in His time.
Sure, being encamped in the wilderness really stinks; but that’s only if we allow it. I’m going to relax and enjoy the wilderness!
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.”
“And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.”
