Have you ever felt like the path of life was “one step forward and two steps backwards”?
Have you ever experienced frustration over what you thought was a “lucky break” but later, it just didn’t “pan out”?
Have you ever found yourself discouraged and even despondent because your achievements and accomplishments were far less than what you wanted and dreamed of?
Have you ever started a job or a business and thought, “This is the one! This is the one that’s going to get me over the top.” Eventually, in disappointment, you realized it wasn’t the one.
If you said yes to any of the above, then hear the Word of the Lord:
“For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up … and … did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed” — Joshua 24:17
As you read the previous verse, did you see what God is doing FOR YOU as you walk the path of life and as you cross paths with people?
Did you see that God is:
- Growing, developing, grooming, and mentoring YOU
- Doing great things in your life – that you may not even fully realize or recognize yet
- Preserving you because he has blessings and a purpose for YOU
I’m not done yet.
It gets even better.
My friend, God is building, developing, and preparing you for so much good – both the giving and the receiving of good – and like a small child doesn’t yet understand the good that its parents are doing for it, you don’t yet understand the good that God is doing for you.
But, understand this: God is making your way perfect. Right at this moment in time, you may not feel like that’s true. But, I assure you it absolutely is true because the Bible tells us:
“God is my strength and power: And he maketh my way perfect.” — 2 Samuel 22:33
It’s all good. Everything that happens is for good. Go inside yourself and realize with ever fiber of your being that as sure as you move, breathe, and have your being in God, it’s just as sure that He’s making your way more and more perfect.
One last thing…
What would happen if you were to let go of those feelings of frustration and disappointment and trade them for faith, trust, and confidence in God to take everything that’s happened in your life – both good and bad – and turn it into greater and greater good?
What if you made this trade and faith, trust, and confidence in God became your new mode of operation?
It’s incredibly simple. It’s incredibly hard. It’s surrendering to God.
