I wait for the Lord, my soul waits and in His word I hope;
Are you good at waiting on God or are you like me where you tend to be chomping at the bit like a horse waiting to take off or bolting ahead saying, “Now that I see what you have, I’ve got this”?
Yesterday while I was outside with one of the dogs I could hear an animal screaming but couldn’t figure out what it was and when I would walk in the direction of the noise the neighbor dog would start barking at me and the noise would stop. After two times of that happening I finally went to see if he was tormenting something in the corner of their yard on the other side of their wooden fence. They have a fence that is wooden with a wire fence to keep small animals out (that didn’t work so well). There was a small rabbit stuck in between the wires of the fence with one leg stuck through one small square and it’s body through another and it was frantically trying to get away from the dog even though the dog didn’t seem to intend to hurt it. I was shocked that the bunny allowed me to calm it down and get it’s legs straightened out and Bill pulled back one wire and I slid it through, set it down and it took off. If the bunny had continued in it’s frantic efforts instead of calming down and allowing us to help it, it could have killed itself, or the dog may have after a while.
Like that bunny, if you are struggling or you are getting ready for the amazing plan God has in store for you, calm down a minute. Allow God to guide you and straighten the path in front of you so you can be free to do His will! God is so good and you can always trust Him to do what is best, there is no need to be frantic. Spend time in His word and look for His promises and hold on to your hope in Him! He is the God of all and all that you face is “but a small thing for Him to fix”.
If you are not the one going crazy right now and you have someone close to you who is, be there for them and help them to see that God is in control. Life get’s crazy sometimes for all of us, no one is exempt from trouble in this world, but God can handle it if you will just give it all to Him.
If you have finally found something God has for you to do, allow Him to guide you in it! Don’t get so caught up in the moment that you take off out of the gate like a race horse without a jockey. Hold on and press into God and allow Him to guide you in all that you do and I can promise you then that the best is truly yet to come!
