Have you ever said Lord I don’t know what you have for me? Or asked what am I to be doing with my life, Lord?
I would wrestle with this question, but now - I just rest.
Rest knowing that He is control of it all. The outcome of my future, the legacy of our children, the tasks set before me.
My prayer lately has been that all the gifts and talents He has given me are never enough to get me through the task - that I need Him to accomplish them.
I want to be like Abraham who was called a friend of God (James 2:23). I want the Holy Spirit to be with me each day; walking side by side through every decision, every question and every doubt of who I am. I want to hear His still small voice and be obedient to His Word.
Life is messy, it’s ugly, but there is a God that loves us even when we think we are unlovable.
He has never left me. I only left Him.
We may not know what God has for us or our future. Sometimes I wish He would give me a dream like He did with so many in the Old Testament. Then I realize that I would have little faith because I already know the answer.
Let's get honest, we serve a God that is smart and faithful.
Rest knowing that He holds you in the palm of His hand.
Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands – Isaiah 49:16
He knows your future. He knows your best and your worst. Rest in knowing that you may not know what the future holds, but stay faithful to Him and He will begin to show you.
Partake of His Word, chew on it, study it, and it will become a living Word to your flesh.
The unknown future of what your flesh wrestles with has to come to obedience to what the Spirit of His Word says.
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you; - Philippians 3:13-15
Lord, I may not know what is going on or what my future holds for my life, but there is comfort knowing that you do. Help me to trust you better, not more, but better. Thank you Lord that today I can walk not worrying about what lies ahead, but trusting you moment by moment.
