Morning Prayer, Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: GOD’S THOUGHTS
Father God, what I do not want to forget is WE CAN’T figure You out no matter how much we strategize or plan. What we have to do is just let You flow in our lives Your way, no matter how long it takes You. Amen
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 55:8
"You are where God wants you to be right now. Follow His lead no matter where it leads You.” As we sit waiting on God to answer our prayers, it is rather easy for us to want to compare what we got going on with what is going on in the lives of others around us. God does not bless me in the same way He blesses you. He does not move in my life in the same way He moves in yours. Things happen in this life that none of us can explain and so we just have to roll with it. For myself, it gets frustrating sometimes when I have prayed for a situation sometimes until I am blue in the face, and waited and waited only to hear crickets. I am getting nothing. I had to learn that God’s ways and thoughts are not like mine. Just because I am panicking and fearful and frustrated does not mean God will move now. This life we live is sometimes complicated. There is a bigger picture that we cannot see. Sometimes, God is moving behind the scenes and it looks like to us that He is doing absolutely nothing. In those times, it can be rather frustrating but when we can rap our minds around the fact that “WE CAN’T” see the bigger picture and so just because we think God is not moving, does not mean He does not care. God always cares! What I have found myself doing in the past is trying to work the situation out in my mind. Sometimes, when I should sit still, strategically plan out my next move. Turns out, it was a bad move. If I had just waited a little while longer, and put some trust on what I know about God, things would have worked out in my favor. What I did was make a bigger mess which prolonged my blessing.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
