Seeing Around the Corner
Have you ever been in those kinds of seasons in your life when you know that all sorts of things are in the works and just around the corner but you can’t really see it? You know it’s there. You don’t have exacts, but it’s almost like if you just reached a little further you could touch it? It can be a season of frustration and irritation.
I know that a lot of people have this misguided notion that God likes to play with them similar to how you’d play with a cat and a ball of string. Many people think that when you get close to it God likes to move things further. God is not like that. HE wants you to fulfill His will for your life more than you do. He created you for it.
There are many reasons why God doesn’t reveal to you everything at once. One of them is it wouldn’t really be faith if we knew everything. Faith builds trust. God doesn’t want a bunch of pawns in the game of chess. He wants us to work with Him in teamwork to get to where He’s called us to.
We have to keep trusting that around the corner God has good plans for us even if we can’t see them completely.
Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV) For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Trust God in what He’s doing in your life. He’ll tell you what’s around the corner and you’ll walk in it. All will be well.
Remember He has awesome plans for your life. Get excited.
