24 hours………yep, we all get the same amount of time every day. I love it when someone says, “I want to work out, but I don’t ever have enough time,” or “I would love to start my own business, but I never have enough time”, or “I need to go to the doctor for this pain in my side”, BUT UGH…… yep, you guessed it, “I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME.”
It is amazing to me how so many people have time for what the have to do, instead of what they desire to do. Most people get up early to be at a job, that could lay them off in a split second. Get up early, to go in on their off day, for “OVERTIME”. Yet, we never have time for ourselves. Well, I wonder, if we weren’t on social media all day, instead of just a couple of minutes or hours (because social media is amazing), would we have enough time? In Ecclesiastes 9:11, God’s Word says, “I returned and saw under the sun that—The race is not to the swift,Nor the battle to the strong,Nor bread to the wise,Nor riches to men of understanding,Nor favor to men of skill;But time and chance happen to them all.” That means that when you feel this intuition or someone comes to you with a word or you get a “gut feeling”; that could be God sending messages to you.
That could be your chance to change your life and the trajectory of your family generation. By YOU stepping into what is already yours, could open up so many doors. Most people just keep praying about it, when God continues to send messages (small glimpse) to tell you “this is a part of your prayer.” But if you are looking for the answered prayer in a different way, you will miss God all the time. Because, most of the answers that God sends us, comes to us in ways we did not expect.
Yet, on the other side of this; so many people get out of alignment because we go ahead of Gods Timing. We don’t ask for confirmation or seek Him first. We just move without asking God to direct or lead us. And during those times, the only thing we can do is WAIT. Yes, I said it, “wait”. It was like I yelled at you, right? None of us want to wait. Waiting feels like we are wasting time. Well, it is not. It is intentionally waiting on God to show us the next step. It is preparing you to step into what God already has for you. It is trusting that He will still provide all you need. It is growing you even in the tough times. And it is placing a a faith in you that will forever be unwavering. That is where I am at now. I know I moved in God’s timing. Even if I do not see all the way down the road, God still shows us a small light in front of us that allows for us to take a step. Not a jump…..but a small step. When it is clear, He will shine His light a little more.
This week, trust the process. Trust that there is purpose on the other side of the pain. Trust that God has a better plan than you can see. Trust His guidance. God orders you steps and your stops. Because He knows the ideal time for you to arrive at your destination.
