The longer I walk with the Lord the more I realize that I can fully depend on His faithfulness. I am able to stay in a place of rest as different problems arise that would have sent me into a panic in my early years walking with Jesus. I have watched, again and again, God come through in ways that I could have never imagined as I let go of control, worry and trying to strive to find an answer. I often wondered why things were delayed but often the delay was self imposed because I hadn’t surrendered to His wisdom and ways and was in the way.
Whether the problem is financial, relational or something else you must rest in the fact that your Heavenly Father has an answer and a solution. When a problem or obstacle arises I first surrender to His wisdom and His supernatural intervention to come and turn it around.
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
His is the ONLY One who can create out of our void. He did this with the utter darkness at the beginning of our universe. He said, “Let there be light.” and there was. He can do the same with any void, lack or darkness that is before you. He can speak light and light will come forth. He speaks to a block in your way and it is cleared as a pathway for you and He speaks to the dry wastelands and BEHOLD…there is water!
What is before you that is causing you to have anxiety in your heart? Allow the Holy Spirit to turn your anxiety into expectation. What a great adventure as He writes your story and makes it the most amazing adventure that your children will ever read.
I was talking to a 20 year old girl recently and she was sharing with me how her parents have a “testimony” box of all of the amazing God stories that have happened in their lives. They loved to get the box out and read to their children the stories of God’s miraculous provisions and the ways that He made for them to pass through into their promises. What a wonderful idea. Our family has a bowl of “stones of remembrance” that is filled with stones that have dates and names on them when miraculous help came to us.
There is no problem or obstacle too great for our God!!! Surrender the problem and then watch God extend His staff and make a way for you. Join Him and follow His leading so that you can partner with Him in walking out your miracle but expect to see His hand move on your behalf.
‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Begin this day with surrender and expectation. Your problem is not a problem for the Creator of the Universe…who is your Daddy!
