WHERE HAS GOD PLACED YOU?
Proverbs 3:5-6 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.
The Lord has a plan for our lives and if necessary HE will move Heaven and Earth to reveal HIS will!
In these very scriptures God promises to guide us if we trust in Him and lean not on our own understanding!
My Pastor preached a Sermon a while back and it stuck with me like glue and I will never forget it. I don't even remember the title of his sermon that life changing day but I do remember the meat of God's word presented to me and I remember clearly that Sunday morning I stepped out in faith that I had never experienced before!!!
Pastor Anthony said some people are satisfied only to go out and get wet up to their ankles in faith, some go as far as their knees, some to their waist but FEW dive into the deep waters of faith!!!
I realized that very day that I was maybe even up to my chest but out of sheer fear I had never dove into the deep waters of faith and I had never totally given complete control to God!
In October of 2013 I was heartbroken that God was moving me in a new direction of my life. I wish I could say that I was totally sure it was God and I wish I could tell you that me being placed at a new location has been Candy Land! I would love to tell you that I was a woman of great faith and I never once wavered!!! All would have been a great story to tell you but only a story.
Truth is change is hard and my plans and your plans are not always God's plans . Truth is, The Lord seemed to move Heaven and Earth to move me to a new branch of employment and the truth is.... I went a kicking and a screaming and that is the TRUTH!!!!
REMEMBER... THAT DAY.....I PRAYED.... GOD MOVE ME INTO THE DEEP WATERS OF FAITH ....AND HE DID!!!! Imagine that?
What I would like to tell you is that I know that I know that I know that God has a perfect plan for my life! I DO KNOW that my God is making my path straight! I DO KNOW that I have submitted to HIM! I DO KNOW I have stepped out in FAITH and I DO KNOW I am trusting only in HIM!
You see, that very Sunday I realized that I no longer was satisfied being chest deep. I wanted more of God and less of me! I leaped up, dove straight into the deep waters of faith and I haven't come up for air yet!
God has perfectly mapped out a plan for my life and for yours :)
How can we trust God to show us His will? How can we not? LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING!! TRUST IN HIM!!!
