Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.Proverbs 3:5-8 NIV
When I committed to getting out of my own & God’s Way, I had to remember that wherever I go, God is there.
That requires an enormous leap of faith for me. I have deep faith, but also an infatuation with data. I am a validator.
“Do Not Be Wise in Your Own Eyes”
Are You sure, God? I want to be still and watch, but it’s not the best use of my talents, in my humble opinion…
Watchers are Static.
At my best, I am a warrior poised to strike. Yet, You told me to watch You. You did not tell me where to look, but rather to remain watchful. Always. No matter where I am. And to be still.
No Matter Where I Wandered…You Were There…Waiting for Me to See You.
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.Psalms 139:7-10 NKJV
Messages from You have come from some unlikely places. Music I haven’t heard in a while.
A scripture I read on a calendar page this weekend. A calendar page that was nine months old…
A Facebook memory, a single line from a sermon, preached 12 months ago…
There’s more, but you’ll have to wait…and watch God move
…to be continued…
