Have you ever had that feeling where you know God wants you to do something more for Him but you are not sure what it is?
That’s where I am.
God has been tugging on my heart to not only do more for Him, but be more for Him. I’ve been questioning Him, wondering specifically what He wants me to do. Here’s the problem…I need to be patient and listen more intently to God to understand His desires of me. I am naturally a very impatient person, so this is an extremely difficult position that I am in. I want to know right now.
I am sure that God is smiling down upon me shaking His head knowing that His child is struggling with this patience business. He knows that I am impatient. He knows my weaknesses and my strengths. He knows where I have been and He knows where I am going. He has plans for me.
Plans? For me? That is simply amazing.
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 (NIV)
God wants the very best for each of us. He wants us to have joy and happiness. He wants us to succeed through Him. He does not want us to hurt, but instead wants us to grow in the Light. He is a loving Father who has created a special future for each of His children.
Be patient. Listen to Him. Focus your life on praising Him. He will provide. He will lead. He will give us the answers we need in His perfect timing.
I will continue to listen knowing that God has the perfect future for me planned out. His plans for us are more amazing than what we could create for ourselves. That is worth being patient for.
