Let me tell you what happens when you submit to God’s will and leave everything to Him – and I mean every little detail. When you let Him choose for you, when you yield so that He can grant you the privilege of Him directing your life… Oh my! You end up living a life that is beyond your wildest dreams or expectations.
You end up on adventures, camping out in special places where you discover that leopards and hyenas roam by night!!!! Then you discover that there are black warrior moran angels sent to protect you. Ai God!
You end up on journeys of the mind and the heart and the spirit man that stretch you beyond belief but leave you anticipating the more that God can do. Understanding just how much you had limited Him till now.
You end up with that special person – that mysterious gift sent by God that He uses to tear you out of mindsets and places and spaces that would have kept you limited and bound – and stuck in the mundane.
You end up free and able to see once again – able to take flight, to believe, to trust, to dare… and you climb to the highest heights imaginable.
Oh I thank You God, our precious Father, redeemer and strength for surely You have done amazing and wondrous things. You have become our song, our steadfast rock, our still waters, our all in all.
As I read the piece by Chioma I could not help but wonder if I had really found that kind of trust and belief she is talking about. Though I have believed before, there were so many questions and I didn’t have answers to all of them. For instance
- Do I trust God absolutely?
- Do I respond to His word immediately or do I negotiate?
- Has trust changed my view of God and the world?
- Is my life becoming proof of my walk with God?
- Am I committed to remain in the place and posture of growth?
- Is my walk with God producing daily change?
This is a jarring series of thoughts at the start of the year but what better time to shift deeper?
Join me thinking about this and let’s have some honest conversations.
