Psalm 37:4-5 “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your hearts desires. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.”
So many times in my life I have sought out the Lord’s blessing in things after I had already done them. I would know in my heart that it was backwards but thought I might could help Him just a little. I have never been more convicted of that than I am right now. I know that I heard the Lord speak clearly to me not so long ago. It was two different occasions and I thought that maybe I needed to help move things along. However I can now see that I was wrong. The things He was preparing me for were not where they needed to be. I thought I was ready and so I put my faith in myself and figured it would eventually work itself out. “Be patient and wait”, “Taste and see” . Two very specific instructions and both times I failed Him. However, He was ever faithful and I can now see both of these things falling into place. I am encouraged knowing that no matter how many times I have failed Him, He is always still there for me. I am very independent. I am one of those people who seems to think I can do everything by myself. I don’t like to ask for help. The Lord is so merciful in that no matter how much I can mess it up on my own, He works it together for good. When you take time to pray specifically, He will fulfill the desires of your heart. He knows what we need better than we know ourselves. He is constantly showing me this and I am so eager to see what His plan for my life is. From here on out, I am trying to put away my own selfish desires and wants and focus on His will. I know that I will not be disappointed!
