And I have to wait for it.
God reveals one step of the plan at a time. He knows the whole plan but he also knows that I can only handle one step at a time. He knows you and he knows you can only handle one step at a time.
So my job is discern the small part of the plan that God has revealed to me today and do that.
While trusting him about tomorrow.
In Psalm 106, God tells us that the Israelites did not wait for his plan to unfold in the wilderness as they journeyed to the Promised Land. They gave into grumbling and complaining. They tested God by craving other things and he gave them what they asked for. Their choices brought pain and death.
They did not wait and watch. They did not obey and do what God had told them to do today.
Waiting isn’t easy.
Being obedient with the things he has told me to do today without worrying about tomorrow is not easy.
Trusting him with it all is not easy.
That’s why I need to focus. I need to persevere. All of my energy and concern needs to be used in being obedient today – knowing God’s got tomorrow and he will reveal the next step when its the right time.
God never promised me that this journey would be easy. But he has promised that he is always beside me giving me strength and wisdom and peace as I wait for the rest of his plan to unfold.
I trust you, Abba Father.
