I started the day thankful for a fun time with friends yesterday. Then somehow, I started thinking of all my worries They started piling up. I can only see what is in front of me. I can hope, wish and dream for what I think I want. And, I can pray. I can pray that God gives me what is best for me.
God knows what I do not. I cannot see the future. God knows. It is far better to follow God’s plan, then to try and create my own plan. I have found that there will always be something missing, when I try to do everything on my own. However, when I trust in God, I have everything that I need and even things that I had no idea that I needed.
I need to have patience. I must trust in God. In God’s due time, he will deal with those who afflict me. God will deal with those who caused me persistant pain, suffering, and anguish. God will save the lame. God will save those considered inferior. God will bring back those who were driven out. If you were pushed out, God will bring you back. God will not only bring them back, God will appoint them for praise and fame, wherever they were shamed. God will make you succeed in front of those that humiliated you.
Behold, at that time
I will deal with all who afflict you;
I will save the lame,
And gather those who were driven out;
I will appoint them for praise and fame
In every land where they were put to shame.
–Zephaniah 3:19 (NKJV)
Stop looking at what you can see in front of you. Instead, close your eyes and trust in the Lord. God has so many good things planned for you. Stop trying to control your life. Instead, pray to God. Let go of your worries and turn them into prayers. Then, stop and listen to God’s response. Is it a whisper in your head? When you read the bible, does a sentence pop out? The Holy Spirit is trying to speak to you. You need to make sure you are open to hearing and listening. Pray More and worry less.
