Why is it that you don’t always see your path? Maybe the details aren’t present, but the past is. The future doesn’t look bright unless you begin breaking barriers.
Many discussions echo the same sentiment that none of this makes sense. You want something different, but the timing is off.
Maybe you’re waiting for perfection. Hoping for a brighter day. Yet it never seems to come.
Why God won’t You give me the details of what I’m supposed to be doing? If I only understood Your reasoning, then I wouldn’t have anything to fret or fear. I would understand why I’m in this situation. Why I lost my job. Why my marriage is on the rocks. Why we have to move. Come on Lord. Sounds fair to me.
An internal heart to heart struggle with God that never seems to get an answer.
Therefore, the walls start rising up. Lord, if I can’t understand, then why should I believe?
The only certainty is the uncertainty of what tomorrow brings.
“There’s clarity in the past, confusion in the present, and uncertainty in the future.”
So if you rely on clarity, your walk remains in the past. Is that where you really want to continue your journey?
The uncertainty in the future is simple. You can’t see it, so no reason to believe it. There’s no guarantee. You have no idea what the future holds.
However, you can choose the present. This is the moment to create your now. Yet there you find confusion.
Why. So. Many. Speedbumps?
Life should not be so complicated. Where are the details? What are the next steps? Why can’t I see the big picture?
Because if you knew the whole story, you wouldn’t reach tomorrow.
Life is about breaking barriers; going against the grain of expectations to live out the promises of God.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Breaking barriers!
What if you knew 100% how your life would turn out and that all your dreams would come true?
What would you do differently?
- Would you rise early to keep the focus and set your intentions for the day?
- Or, would you hit the snooze button to get 10 more winks of interrupted shut-eye?
Most of us are quick to move on when there is clarity; what is guaranteed. But are slow when there are too many questions.
We want the details. In fact, we demand them, especially from God.
How many times have you cried out, “Why me, Lord?”.
Did you ever think that God’s plan is better than yours? And in trusting Him, you are willing to do what He asks without question?
It seems more than strange. You want answers, but God does not give you the details.
You may not have the definitive clarity you want, but you have faith!
God doesn’t do whatever each morning the sun rises for you. He has determined your plan and set it in motion.
The question is…. Are you willing to move even without the clarity, focus, and details?
“The hope of what’s to come is in your faith not by your clarity. You must not see in order to know.”
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
It’s time to step out of the way and let God begin breaking barriers. Trust in Him knowing that He knows more.
Let me ask you this question. What if you had all the answers and details. If God handed you the blueprint to your life, would you follow through with God’s dream, or would you still stop and question?
I know what I would do. Initially, I would want control. But that’s the problem. We need to relinquish our control to gain clarity for today.
That doesn’t mean you’ll have all the answers. But you will have exactly what you need when you need it.
Think about Mary and how she was told by an angel that she would bare the Son of God. Yet she is a virgin. How can this be?
God was breaking barriers to save you from the beginning of time. Why question Him now? Trust in what He reveals in His timing.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” ~ Jeremiah 29:11
Leave the details to God. Let Him do the heavy lifting. You follow through with what you know is true.
“Walk by faith!”
