God is doing something new in me. When isn’t He?! I’ll be sharing SHORT encouraging posts as He leads. So take a moment, my friends, to reflect on God and what He’s doing in your life!
Don’t be tempted to manipulate your circumstances. Yes, waiting is hard. But you can do it. You NEED to do it. Don’t think for a minute that God isn’t aware. He’s always working behind the scenes on your behalf. But if you shove your way into this situation, you could ruin all that He’s been working on.
Think of the time it takes a spider to build its web, the tiny droplets of dew glistening in the morning light. Such lovely artwork until someone walks right through it, brushing it off like a nuisance. You have no idea what God is creating for you, what He’s working out for your good.
Trust Him. Trust His plan. Don’t try to bulldoze your way into this situation as if you know better. Don’t let anger, guilt, or fear motivate you to rush ahead either. Wait on God. Yes, waiting is hard. Of course, it is. But when you get where God is leading and you look back at the intricate artwork of your journey, you’ll see it was worth it. And your heart will be ready to appreciate it.
Deeper reflection: Read 1 Samuel 13:1-14.
