Jeremiah 32:21-23. You brought your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm, and with great terror. And you gave them this land, which you swore to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey and they entered and took possession of it but they did not obey your voice or walk in your law. They did nothing of all you commanded them to do. Therefore you have made all this disaster come upon them.
Have you been begging God for something? Did you not quite get what you expected, maybe it wasn’t quite what you had before or maybe it hasn’t turned out to be quite the position you thought you would get. Whatever the case may be, you aren’t quite satisfied with where you are or maybe how things seem to be turning out.
God blessed Israel with the “Promised Land”. Was it easy? No. Was it all they had dreamed it would be on every level? No, there were battles to fight and giants to face, and on top of all that, there were temptations. The struggle was very real!
Often when God gives us something new; a new beginning, a second chance, a new ministry, a new job, etc. it isn’t quite what we anticipated in the beginning. Trust Him! Don’t get down in the mouth and start complaining. See what you are facing as a challenge, a step leading you to the next level. You haven’t reached all that God has for you in your promised land yet but you will if you remain faithful and you follow His lead. Don’t rebel as the Israelites did. They became discontent and they allowed other gods in their lives and they allowed ungodly people to influence their decisions, they became complacent until God had to intervene and discipline them. Take this time to grow, allowing God to mature you in your faith and trust in Him!
God loves you and His grace is always sufficient. Know that you can trust Him. Thankfully God is a God of mercy and He cares enough to deliver us when we seek Him with all our hearts, mind, and soul. God wants His best for you, He wants His best for your marriage, your finances, your job – first and foremost He wants you. He wants a relationship with you and He wants you to trust Him enough to follow Him through the good and the bad. He will lead you through to the other side, even when you just can’t seem to find the way. Don’t allow satan to discourage you from what God is trying to do in your life. God has a great plan for you, it may not seem right now like what you thought it would be but if you will just follow Him and trust Him then truly His best is yet to come!
