I was chatting to some friends over the weekend about the process of achieving your goals and seeing your dreams fulfilled. Most people discover one way or another that dreams becoming a reality can take time - like years, to come to pass and that a big key to success is making a decision to keep walking, working and choosing to not give up.
God’s been writing our story within His story since the beginning of time, and even if we are in a hurry, He doesn’t ever seem to be. He wants us to understand that with Him, there is always purpose in the process, and even if we don’t know what lies ahead, God does and promises He will walk beside us.
One key is to do something every day towards achieving your goals and holding onto the hope and knowledge that Jesus is your help, is cheering you on and will lead and guide you as you seek Him.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)
Whatever you are facing today, what your past looked like or how uncertain you are of the future, keep looking at Jesus, the promises in His Word and the goals and dreams He has placed in your heart. With Him by your side, you can scale any wall, climb that mountain and overcome every obstacle.
Even when you stumble or fall, rather than focusing on any problems or fears, seek Jesus for your strength, wisdom, and answers because He promises He will build a solid foundation and your life piece by piece so that things will work out in your favour - so today, I encourage you to just keep walking….
”I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted”. ( Job 42:2)
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21)
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called to his purpose.” ((Romans 8:28)
Prayer: Lord, thank you that you are in the midst of the story you are unfolding in and around my life. Please help me remember to trust that whatever I am facing today you are walking right alongside me and that everything will be alright because there is always purpose in the process. In Jesus name amen
