A friend of mine had me call him today and told me that God had given him a word to give to me. Now, I hadn't told anyone about my worries, expectations, and my hopes for the future. He begins to tell me not to make any hasty decisions and not to hurry my future. He told me other things and I began to cry. The Lord has promised me many things and I am standing on those promises, but my problem is trying to rush to get to the promises of the Lord. As he was speaking to me, I was reminded that His timing is the right timing. I want only the Lord's will for my life, I don't want to do anything that would cause me to be removed from His will. Talking with this friend today reminded me that all I have to do is lean back and enjoy the ride. I don't have to worry or fret about my next step in life. All I have to do is give all the worries and frustrations to God and He will take care of it. He knows the desires of my heart even before I speak them. He understands thatI want everything He has for me and I am willing to do what He asks. Right now, He's asking me to wait. Just simply wait and enjoy life. Not to rush through it. Its not like I can make it go any faster than it already is. Besides, He allows things to come and go in our lives, so whatever He wants goes..
This verse means a lot to me and right now it describes what I'm feeling and what I need to do.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall guide your paths." Proverbs 3:5&6 (NKJV)
If I give God all that I have in my heart He wont turn me away and tell me that He doesn't want what I offer. He tells us to "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4 (NKJV) If He tells me my desires will be mine, what do I have to worry about then? He's got it all under control! It's my turn to give it to God and wait for Him to do the rest.
