It is normal to have a few prayer requests up before God. Those desires and wants and needs play in a loop in our minds on a daily basis. Our faith in God is exercised at every turn. With each move of progress that we see, either right in front of us, or on the periphery of life, we are searching and looking for God. God, is that you? God is “this” it?
I truly believe that my hope and desire is in view. God revealed it to me almost two years ago. Then, He did something that I was not expecting. Y’all, God showed it to me. Then He said…..wait!
Wait? Yes, wait!
I promise you, it was not a definite no, it was a NOT YET. I have struggled since then trying to figure out the “why” behind it. But I was reminded of what God’s Word says in Isaiah.
Isaiah 55:8 New Living Translation (NLT) says,
8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
God has His reasons for changing the flow of blessings in our lives. For me, I know for a fact that it was so that I could grow in Him and He could bring forth the greater purpose that He has for me. It was also so that my faith in Him would expand mightily. God, I say that I trust you…now let’s really see. Well, actually I can’t see, and that is where my faith kicks in.
I do have to be honest, though. I spent the first year trying to make happen what only God can. It was if God was saying, I am going to give you the desires of your heart, but I want to make sure that you know that it is I, out of my unfailing love for you, who is making this happen.
God wants to get the glory out of this.
Nevertheless, I needed to do something! That something was to dig into God’s Word and cultivate my personal relationship with Him, while I continue to go through this process of growth. I had to stop trying to figure everything out and let God be God.
I feel like through this, God is saying to me, Let Me Surprise You!.
I thought that I had things figured out and I knew how everything was going to come together. But God desires to surprise me even beyond anything that I can ever imagine. I have decided to stop and let Him.
Let God Surprise You!
