Today’s word is PURPOSE. Let’s GO!
This week has been a bit of a struggle with “purpose.” I am going through a waiting time. I almost said game, but at this point in my life, it is some pretty serious stuff. Maybe too serious. There has been a restlessness in my heart as I seek the Lord and wait for his verdict, decision, direction, or any answer really. Sometimes you ask and ask and it seems like the Lord is in another room working on something else. Or may be worse, He is saying no but saying it in a manner so subtle that you can only hope that you aren’t hearing it.
I listened to a song today on the way into work and had a tiny breakthrough.
The line that did this was “You’re moving mountains that I don’t even see.”
I began to think about what God is doing right now while I am asking him “do you see me? Do you know that I am waiting here and I am becoming more and more confused?” I have felt at times like God was moving but then things seemed to stand still. That is the thing, they seemed to be standing still.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 55:8
“You’re moving mountains that I don’t even see.”
God doesn’t do things like I do. He certainly doesn’t see things the way I do. I may gather in my mind that God is busy with someone else or waiting for me to have an epiphany (and certainly He might be-the epiphany part), but it is also quite possible that God is actively moving a mountain for me that I simply cannot see. He could be making a pathway clear for me and with utterly perfect timing no less. Since I am little ole me, I get stuck on some negative thoughts convinced that God does not hear me right now because He is otherwise occupied, He is telling me NO in no uncertain terms even though I am pretty sure He said yes before which means I probably ticked him off thus bringing on a no at this point (ever done this?) or God has a very specific message for me that I need to understand BEFORE He moves.
Today, through a song, I found peace. I connected to an answer. He is moving mountains. He is making my path straight. He is working on His timing, because frankly, it is the best timing. I’ll trust in him and wait for my breakthrough. It is coming. I can almost taste it.
In case you were wondering, the song is “Still” by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family.
Have you been waiting on God recently? How’s it going with you? Are you learning anything new about you or God?
