God may not take you where you want to go but you will end up where you need to be

A lady at church was telling me about her calling to become a preacher and how she needed to overcome an obstacle before she could felt she could proceed.  She tried many things to overcome this obstacle but struggled and almost gave up.  Then she felt God telling her why are you trying to do this in your own strength and that was it, she overcame the obstacle and has never looked back.

That really spoke to me, if God has a calling for us he will make the way for us, he will part the waters or move the mountains.  So we shouldn’t say no to God and the opportunities he puts our way just because we feel it’s too hard or not achievable, we need to embrace his call and trust that he will provide.

Matthew 6:25-34 – Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. …

Ezra 10:4 – Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.”

RISE UP

Don’t stay in the boat when God’s calling you out into the water, get up, this is in your hands, the multitudes will support you so take courage and do it, align your heart with God’s, he is so aware of where you are and every step he’s asking you to take, he’s just asking you to walk by faith and not by sight, and there’s light at the end of the tunnel, God is good and all things are possible, step by step let your pile of good things grow, just don’t be afraid of the unknown, step back, release and watch God blow your mind and you’ll find he may not take you where you want to go but you will end up where you need to be, be bold, be courageous, God has a comeback for every setback just glorify him in all that you do, go on step out of the box to change the view.

  1. I like your last sentence – “God has a comeback for every setback just glorify him in all that you do, go on step out of the box to change the view.” So encouraging!
