Do you ever wish you could have everything you want right now? Sometimes we can be impatient when trying to achieve our goals. We want to get to the finish line as quickly, and with as little fuss, as possible. But often, we come across detours, and sometimes we fall over and our journey is delayed. Sometimes we try and rush things and then instead of achieving what we really want, somehow things fall apart.
Isaiah 55:8-9, He tells us ” for My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
We may feel frustrated in our journey but it’s important to remember that GOD sometimes uses delays or set backs to teach and protect us. He cares about our hopes and goals but we need to remember we can only achieve things when we rely fully on Him.
We may not know HOW He wants to achieve our goals but we can rely on His perfect direction and timing. We can use the season He placed us in to grow our faith and endurance as we journey through life.
We may not achieve all of our goals in one day. But remember “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens” (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
God bless you ~M
