I’ve been struggling in my walk with God lately! My struggle has been in the area of how fast things are happening in my life. So, this morning in my prayer time, I decided to just deal with it. As I was asking God to move in my life, thoughts started entering my mind (next thing you know, I’ll be taking Prozac or something). It was like God was speaking to me and telling me,
“Slow down! You know, I told the snake right before I kicked Adam and Eve out of the garden that I would cause a Savior to come into being. You know, her very first child could have been the One, but I decided to take a longer, slower approach. Then, when the Savior did come, I could have come back at any time after that, but I haven’t yet. What’s it been? 2000 years? Take it easy, ok, I will get you to where I want you when it suits Me.”
Isn’t that just awesome? If God is who He tells us He is, why do I spend so much time worrying about the future? Why do I think I will never make it to where He wants me to be? If God knew me before I was born and knit me together like David says in Psalms 139, He knows more about me than I do. His word says that:
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Phil 1:6).
God is the “Author and finisher of my faith” so He will get me where I need to go. I just need to trust Him to get me there.
