Not long ago, God had been stirring my spirit but it seemed a little different than usual. It was a stirring minus any real direction. I knew he was planning big things, but without any specifics or real direction. I’ve described it as sitting at a four-way stop. I know I’m supposed to be going somewhere, but I sit at the four-way with no directions as to where I’m going. As I prayed and read, as usual, I’m asking God to show me my purpose, my plan, and he whispered back, “I’m your purpose.” Wow! Suddenly it didn’t matter where I was going or how I was going to get there, I knew what my purpose was, Jesus! Jesus is my purpose. It was like the weight of the world was lifted off of me, I no longer had to try and figure it all out. Jesus is my purpose and my only requirement is to follow him and in his time he will lead me where he wants me, and that’s all I need to know!
I don’t know where you are today, maybe you’re the car across the four-way from me. Maybe you’ve received your directions and you’re on your way. Either way, lets not focus so much on the directions but on the director. It’s HIM! He is your purpose and He will lead you where He wants you, in His time, and by His plan!
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
To remind myself of this truth God revealed to me, I had a sweet friend come chalkboard for me because I’m not artistic at all and well, she’s pretty much amazing!! So here’s a little pic of my reminder 🙂
