365 Days of Growing Together
Hi WR2W, I know what I am about to say may sound crazy to most, but I must be obedient and say it no matter how crazy it may sound. Here it goes, it is time for us to stop thinking and just move on whatever God has given us to do. What does this mean? It means “We Don’t Have to Understand, We Just Have to Trust”. It means God has already thought “the thing” out for us step by step and all we have to do is trust His word that “[He] directs the steps of the godly [and] He delights in every detail of [our] lives” (Psalm 37:23 NLT). This is good and exciting news! This means God did not leave anything about our life to chance. No, He thought out even the little and most intricate parts that most would overlook to completion. What a mighty and wise God we serve! So why are we trying to understand what we are going through, why we are going through it, or why we have been chosen to go through it instead of trusting God and saying thank You God for sending (choosing) me, “Here I am. Send me.” I will go (Isaiah 6:8) NLT?
WR2W, it is no reason for us to “worry about the wicked or envy those who do wrong” – DON’T (Psalm 37:1 NLT) because “no weapon turned against [us] will succeed” “I the Lord, have spoken!” (Isaiah 54: 17 NLT). It is no reason for us to try and figure out why we must go through the process, but for us to trust God for the blessing. If we stop trying to understand and stop thinking, we can appreciate that everything we have been chosen to suffer through is not because of the enemy, but because God wants to trust us with His blessing. So again, “We Don’t Have to Understand, We Just Have to Trust “! It is our Christian duty to “take delight in the Lord, and [trust and know] He will give [us our] heart’s desires. Commit everything [we] do to the Lord. Trust Him, and [trust and know] He will help [us] (Psalm 37:4-5 NLT).
WR2W, “We Don’t Have to Understand, We Just Have to Trust “that we have been chosen for a greater purpose other than ourselves. Once we can accept and come into the knowledge of the Lord then natural understanding would take no priority and godly understanding would supersede. For the last two weeks, I have been teaching on Designed to Carry Purpose and Give Birth to Destiny and this has been such a blessing because in this series, we learn that we can stop thinking about how we are going to carry purpose to full term and give birth successfully to all that God has promised because we can trust that God has fully dilated (stretched) us so we can deliver further than eyes could see, ears could hear, and minds could imagine (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)! So, does it still seem crazy to stop thinking and just move on whatever God has given us to do? I love each of you, be blessed, be encouraged, and be true!
P.S. – I almost forgot to mention one of the most important reasons “We Don’t Have to Understand, We Just Have to Trust “, He told us in Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” What does this mean, we could never understand because we do not have the ability to, only God does so it is no sense in wrecking our brain trying because all we can do is trust God!
Not trying to Understand, only Trusting
