Who is the man who fears the LORD? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
If I fear anything for long, it is that I will choose the wrong ways and end up in the wrong situations. Like a relationship that is wrong or a job that is wrong. What if I miss out on something that God had for me to do because I didn’t listen and chose myself because He was taking to long?
I will be so sure of something and think I have it figured out but then things will drag and I think, maybe I was wrong and that isn’t going to happen.
For example, I have always had this vision of me standing in front of a stadium of women, speaking to them about God and purity. I can’t possibly believe this would happen without God because that is so scary to me. I haven’t seen any movement on this and so I thought that was just a thought and will never come to happen. I did recently get my own class, all girls, and I am going to start teaching them about Purity.
This made me think about the vision again and I remembered…….
How God doesn’t give us more than we can handle, and at this point I couldn’t handle talking to hundreds of women, but I can handle teaching a handful of girls.
Whether I end up speaking in my life, I know God will slowly get me more comfortable and in front of bigger groups to get me comfortable in the vision I have.
I also know my only fear in life is that I won’t let Him show me what to choose. It says in Scripture to acknowledge Him in all your ways, I believe that even includes things like a job. He knows me better than I know myself, so I will wait and trust that He will tell me what way to choose.
So see, God might give you a glimpse of your future, but that doesn’t mean that it will happen right away. It means to be patient and hold on to the hope and excitement you got when you received that glimpse. Don’t give up and don’t try to figure it all out, take it moment by moment and move forward in those baby steps so that He can prepare you for what is to come.
