“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” -Jeremiah 29:11
When you wait, wait with faith, not with worry. Faith is more about walking day by day than it is about leaping. Faith is about every day just trusting it’s going to be alright. Faith means I don’t see the future but God does and I trust in him. You walk and you wait with faith. In the suffering and the challenges of life, you wait with faith because you know God will come through because he always does. Good things are coming. So when you wait, wait with faith, not with worry. And when you act, act with faith, not with second guessing. If God has asks you to do something, do it. Act with faith, boldness, and enthusiasm. Learn from Jonah. If you start going the wrong way, God will send something to you to turn you back to go towards Nineveh. He’ll send you in the right direction. I just believe so much that faith pleases God that even when we accidentally put our faith in the wrong thing but still act with faith that he’s still, in a way, pleased. So when you decide not to go somewhere, when you second guess, when you move towards a dream that God has given you in your heart, do it with all your heart. Do it with all your heart. And don’t give up and go towards that goal and don’t second guess yourself. Once you’ve made a decision and you believe it’s from God, go for it. Eventually, if it’s not where you’re supposed to go, God will make it crystal clear. You won’t have to guess. Act with boldness.
PRAYER: Thank you, God, for giving us dreams and desires. Guide us to achieving those dreams you have given us.
REFLECTION: Do you feel like God is guiding you to go somewhere?
