Keith and I have had several conversations lately about the future. We know that God still has great plans for us and we want to be sure that we are doing all He has called us to do. We have committed it all to prayer and know that God will give us the direction and answers that we seek.
His purpose and plan…not ours.
If there is one thing we have learned over the last few years it is that change happens. Sometimes it may sting for a while, but He has something better in that change.
My biggest problem is that I am not much about waiting…but I have learned that in the waiting God is working. Quite often I need to be reminded though.
This morning I opened my email to read First Things First with Christine Caine.
I love my early morning quiet time with God. I love that He speaks to me and gives peace to my anxious heart!
“Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear”
Maybe you feel you have prayed and prayed and yet the
heavens are like brass. Perhaps you feel that God is ignoring you,
that He hasn’t heard your prayer.
NO, God is not ignoring you! He never ignores His children.
The fact is, we have no idea what God is
doing on our behalf in the heavenlies.
Think of it like this: we may ask God for one thing, but He has to
rearrange ten thousand other things in order for our
one thing to come to pass.
God is working on your behalf behind the scenes.
Your answer is on its way!
The words that stuck out to me the most are ‘God is working on my behalf behind the scenes’. When I am waiting and wondering “when, God, when”, He is working…on MY behalf.
Did I know that already? Yes, I did. However, God knew I needed that reminder today.
Peace for my anxious heart!
