Life is filled with uncertainties. But one thing is for certain, God is never surprised by situations in life.
It isn’t as if God says, “Wow! How did that happen?” I fully believe that God has everything under control. That doesn’t always mean that we are exactly where we need to be, but God can redirect paths. That is what He is really good at. It is what He does every day. He takes the mess that we get ourselves in to and He turns it around. He makes all things new.
I believe we need to just trust. When things seem to be going crazy, just keep your eyes on Him. Do as He leads ‘you’ because you can only be responsible for ‘you’. Be faithful where He has placed you. Take it all one day at a time. Be faithful in the moment and He will take care of the rest.
Be led by no man but seek to please your Lord alone. That is what is meant by the phrase ‘ Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.’ The lamp only lights enough to see the path immediately before you. It does not light up the whole path at once. We take it one step at a time always being careful to never run ahead of God. If so, we run blindly into the darkness and we might just get off the safety of the path.
It all comes down to trust. Stop expecting everything to be disclosed at once. That is what faith is all about.
But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
the people he chose for his inheritance. Psalm 33:11-12
