Freedom is a beautiful thing. But it comes with a responsibility to the Giver of it all. Life has much to offer us but God never wants any of it to be elevated above Him. He wants to be elevated in us and around us.
To be honest, it can be hard for us to trust God sometimes. Not because we don’t believe He’s real, but because trusting Him means giving up control and adjusting our expectations. Trusting God means trusting Him in ALL outcomes and just for AN outcome that we want.
It’s easy to be consumed with the busyness of life. Rest is vital but even more important is our time with the Source. We must intentionally make time and room to be with God.
What comes to mind when you think of love? If the first thing is romance and couples, you've been duped! Love is so much more than that.
Life doesn’t always make sense because we’re not seeing the whole picture. Even when our view and understanding are limited, God is not.
Spiritual maturity is less concerned about what we can get away with and more about discerning and following the heart of God in our situations. Even a good thing can end up not being the heart of God for a moment if we’re leading and not Him.
It’s very like God to not give us the whole plan or even the first half. Sometimes He shows us just the next step, but He shows us on The Way as we respond in obedience and walk toward the assignment. God is FOR you, not against you. He’s our certainty in uncertainty, always.
