Wilfredo de Jess says, ‘Understanding can wait, but obedience cannot.’

We all go through seasons when we can’t see what God’s doing, or why. It’s really ok. Our God is kind, and so near to us, every second of every day. But He doesn’t owe us an explanation for what He does and doesn’t do, or for what He requires of us.

Just surrender to Him.

He knows all the answers to the questions you’re carrying. While you wait for Him to reveal more, enjoy spending your days saying yes to Jesus. Say with the psalmist in Psalm 131:1 (http://bit.ly/2RB8ZKW), and keep doing the next right thing.

Psalm 46:10 (http://bit.ly/2vABha5) is pretty familiar: ‘Be still, and know that I am God!‘ In the original Hebrew, this verse carries the idea of relaxing, and loosening our grip.

In all your comings and goings and busy doings – could you ask God to increase your faith, so that you could relax your hold – loosen your grip – on what you’re trying to achieve?

You might be surprised to find that, when you loosen your grip on whatever you’re clutching and remember that really it’s God who holds All The Things, you’ll be more productive. Also, you’ll probably enjoy yourself more.

The psalmist says in Psalm 106:2 here:http://bit.ly/2RGucDa

This is a rhetorical question.
The obvious, implied answer is, ‘No one can!’

No matter how much we tried and tried and tried to express God’s greatness back to Him, we just never could. It’s a relief to know we don’t have to be able to grasp God’s eternal majesty and magnitude in order to earn His favour. In His enormous love, He just pours His favour out on us, anyway. What an awesome reason to praise Him, and put our faith in Him, and do all we can to joyfully love Him with our lives.

Is everyone getting ahead of you?
Do you look around and see so many others with so much more?

Read what Psalm 84:10 says here:http://bit.ly/2RzwmVj

That’s not to say that everyone who seems to be winning is wicked. But maybe today you could try enjoying the truth that, things might not be going your way because they’re going God’s way, and that’s way better. He’s got your back. He sees you. He sees your small acts of kindness and consideration – which might not have you stage-diving into adoring crowds, but will, for sure, bring you incomparable joy and peace.
