This morning I woke up with the same thing I went to bed with, an overwhelming feeling of being lost. You know how you feel like you have it all figured out… God has spoken over your life, you can see the steps beginning to happen and then BAM! you’re lost again… That’s me. Overwhelmed with a feeling like you are lost in the woods and running to find your way out but can’t. Like the closest person to you is a million miles away. You could scream as loud as you could – and no one would hear you. But as I awoke this morning it was as if a little bird were whispering in my ear… I opened my eyes and had a vision of standing in the middle of the forest. Then immediately following that I saw a map with “A”, “B” and a line going from each. Then I heard “you’re in the middle… you have to be in the middle if you are going from their to there” (meaning point A to point B). Point A and B reference a few things for me right now but in all of it is wilderness. The holy spirit was speaking to me to stand in faith. I am reminded of Moses – I don’t plan on taking 40 years.
On my way to work, confirmation! The MC on IBN is talking about “standing”. Standing in faith (which often requires patience) is what we have to do to reach our destination. He threw in a nice reminder of our time not always being God’s time. This of course goes with the theme for my week which is STAND and the waters will roll back.
I’m renewed this morning and standing in faith for the things I have prayed for, the things God has spoken to me and the things yet to come. Just because I don’t see change doesn’t mean it is not happening. It just means God isn’t ready to publicize it yet. Sometimes this is because He is waiting on us to get something right. For the first time I can say I know my own flesh is not in the way of this one and that is such a great place to be in.
Standing. Waiting. And Ready.
