So my friend from my Lifegroup gave me a present yesterday. It’s a sign that says, “If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.” It’s a very simple concept, and yet it has a very awesome theme.
I’m just thinking how awesome is that. I’ve been following God, like really following Him for the last few years. Of course little valley’s and whatnot here and there, but my goal has been to follow God’s plan for my life. Try to find out where He wants me and go with it. Now I am really at a downpoint in life, and yet “If God brings me to it, He will bring me through it.” It’s an awesome concept. I’m just starting to really delve into this idea of complete surrender to God’s will. Not my will fitting in with God’s, but truly His will. I understand that as long as I’m walking with God and searching for His heart in my life, I know that I will truly be better off. It brings me back to the passage of the father and gifts. “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:11-12) I want my will to be done, but I know that God’s will is soo much better. I know and trust that God wants more for my life, like joy, contentment, LOVE, trust and closeness, than I could have ever reached on my own. That’s an awesome God. It’s not easy to want God’s will, but I’m learning, praying and asking for God’s wisdom and patience, so that I can pursue God and not my own empty desires.
We have a saying on every piece of currency that I don’t think we ever think about. “In God we Trust”. I don’t think we ever do that with our money, but most of all, our lives. When are we, as flawed people, ever going to trust that our father in heaven has a much better plan for us that we can concieve. I long for the day that I can say before everyone, “I trust God with everything I have and mostly what I don’t have. I know that my Father in heaven is watching over me and wants the best for my life”. The only way to experience that it is to completely surrender to Him and His will. God, I long for Your will in my life, I trust You and Love You. I don’t need to know what’s next for me, I just need to know that You’re walking me through it. I pray that I give up my desires, and desire You alone. Amen!
