Jordan For Jesus #036 "I Will Wait (All I Need Is Jesus)" by Jordan Elizabeth on 2015-02-05 09:39:16
“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
Sometimes, it is good to wait on the Lord and allow Him to take care of things instead of trying to take matters into our own hands and do things on our own. Sometimes, it is good to let go and let God by trusting in the Lord with all of your heart rather than leaning on your own understanding and capability.
God’s ways and thoughts are not the same as our ways and thoughts. God’s ways and thoughts are much higher than our ways and thoughts.
When we don’t always understand what the Lord is doing, it is okay to trust Him because He knows what He is doing, and He is always faithful. He has our best interest at heart and His love for us is much greater than we can begin to fathom. He knows our hearts and what is right for us.
God can do so much more than we can do on our own. Therefore, we can always trust Him because He is more than worthy and deserving of our trust and so much more than we can ever begin to offer Him.
“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.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
“’For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD.” (Isaiah 55:8)
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
A musty odor had been coming from the vicinity of my husband’s man-cave for months. I chalked it up to his old collection of books and memorabilia, but the real cause will force us to tear things up to get to the root of the problem and fix it.
Slightly Obsessed #232: Beyond the Veil of Tears
When trials fall upon us, our human response is to find an escape. The bigger the emotional storm, the more frantically we search for something or someone to rescue us.
Slightly Obsessed #231: Suddenly
When we feel the most lost may be the very moment we discover that someone is searching for us.
Slightly Obsessed #197: Are We Spiritual Darwinists?
Two secular scientists recently stumbled upon evidence challenging their evolutionary assumptions. Do we subconsciously doubt God's power and quietly live a similar Darwinian existence? Are we ready to be challenged to believe in His power to intervene in our lives?
Slightly Obsessed #229: When Pain Is a Good Thing
The pain takes us down and drives us to our knees. We long for relief, for a way out. But in the secret place of suffering, we discover that pain is our friend.
Slightly Obsessed #228: The God of the Grateful
My world had just fallen into a pit. We had a young daughter, four other children, and no insurance. I was so sick that I didn’t even know if I could get to the doctor for tests. Despair rolled over us in waves.
Then God spoke.
