Since I have surrendered to God, it feels like my life has been something like the picture above. It has been a remarkable ride in every way. God always astounds me with the direction in which He leads. I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out the way He will end up doing something or answering a prayer.
It truly has been the ride of my life, and like the tracks around the tree above, I can’t begin to imagine how God has worked some things out. When I looked back, there was just no logical way for it to have happened.
I will never be able to see what the future holds, but God doesn’t have a problem in that area. He knows exactly where you and I will be 5, 10, even 20 years down the road. He also knows the plans He has for each of His Children.
We like to feel in control of our lives, so we try to make decisions based on facts that we already know or directions we want to go. It also makes us feel more comfortable if we think we are doing the driving. That way we can at least have the illusion that we know exactly where we are headed.
It is not an easy thing to completely surrender your life to God when you cannot clearly see what is ahead. You decide to walk forward with Him when you don’t know exactly where you are going. Sometimes He just takes you one step at a time and you don’t have a clue what the end result will be. Sometimes you do know what the end result will be, but you must discipline yourself to walk at His pace so that you don’t try to make it happen yourself.
God wants His Children to know His Character; then they will know that they can trust Him with everything in their life. He has things totally figured out, and all He wants is for you to be obedient to what He says.
Spend time reading the Bible each day, and ask the Holy Spirit to show you the CHARACTER of God.
