Our pastor is preaching from the book “Habakkuk.” Say that five times fast “Habakkuk Habakkuk…” Anyway, I had one of those moments yesterday during his sermon when God reminded me not-so-subtly that “He’s got this.”
He’s got this.
I think I need daily reminding because it’s just too easy to get tangled up in short-sighted emotion. It’s too easy to wonder what the heck God’s doing. It’s too easy to doubt.
So I need it daily. I have to remember that even when it may feel like something is “all wrong,” there’s this God who loves me immeasurably. Not only that, He sees the beginning from the end and He has this way of working every single thing out for our good and His glory. Everything.
..the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Nothing trumps His promises. Nothing thwarts His plan. Nothing catches Him looking the other way.
I may say with Habakkuk, “I don’t like this plan!” But He isn’t threatened. He’s patient. And He can take my little outbursts. But then after I get it all out, He calls me (and you) to faith.
Yes, emotions will come. We’ll raise objections to His plans at times. But the hope is that we move from fear to faith. From pride to faith. From hopelessness to faith.
God gave me a not-so-subtle reminder yesterday. “Lara, trust Me.”
Fill me, Lord…
What do you do when you don’t like God’s plan?
