OUT OF MY CONTROL

 

Sometimes likfe becomes completely chaotic. In other words, nothing seems to make any sense. This may seem uncomfortable, but it is really a blessing. In this scenario, we are completely open to the leading of the Lord.

 

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

 

This is a powerful reminder that trusting in the Lord is vital to our success. When reason is a distant memory, God’s leadership is easier to trust. I am not suggesting that we disconnect our brain, but rather be willing  to override it when following the clear leading of the Holy Spirit. These short term moments that stretch our faith will ultimately reveal the Lord’s incredible wisdom.

 

In short, it is okay if we do not have a plan as long as God does. Next, we must trust in His goodness on all occasions. Finally, keep doing what pleases God and His incredible power will ultimately be revealed. God’s wisdom and efficiency leaves us awestruck.
