“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland” (Isaiah 43:19).
It’s funny how God prepares the mind and heart for change. Sometimes we expect it, and others it’s impossible to foresee. It’s hard to trust without sight. We need vision. Last month, I spent some time on clarity. It takes practice to learn obedience and the ways of the Lord.
When I experience major change, and all I can do is trust God and His promises–I hold on to three very huge, very life-altering promises:
1. Don’t be ashamed (2 Timothy 1:7-10).
2. Don’t attempt anything in my own strength (Zechariah 4:6).
3. Ask the Holy Spirit to help me throw mountains (Zechariah 4:7).
It wasn’t until a year of trusting and waiting for God’s promises to be fulfilled in my life that I had learned a very big lesson.
Trust had become a daily habit.
Along with obedience and…dare I say, patience!
I am living proof that what God does what He’s says He’ll do. My financial needs are being taken care of (still). I moved to San Diego to follow God’s call into ministry, and within one week of being here God has provided more than I could have ever dreamed. And the coolest part? The best is yet to come…
What about you? Are you waiting on something God told you a long time ago that has yet to be fulfilled?
Don’t be afraid to wait in anticipation. See? It springs up!!
Thank You for having the best parenting skills ever. If we ask for provision, you’re not going to give us–a snake! Thank You that every good and perfect gift comes from You. Amen.
