See the future

Within all of us, no matter what age we are, there is that question of “what will I be when I grow up” – that sense of the unknown and uncertainty of what could or could not happen.

 

Supernatural vision rests in the confidence that God is our loving Father, that we are fearfully and wonderfully created, that all the days of our life are written in his book as Psalm 139 says, that He is good and cares so so so much for us.

We are trusting an unknown future to a known God.  When we are confident in the character and heart of God we can entrust our future days to God.

Sovereign in the mountain air
Sovereign on the ocean floor
With me in the calm
With me in the storm
Sovereign in my greatest joy

In my deepest cry
With me in the dark
With me at the dawn
In your everlasting arm
All the pieces of my life
From beginning to the end
I can trust you

In your never failing love
You work everything for good
God whatever comes my way

I will trust you

I will trust you
All my hopes
All I need
Held in your hands
All my life
All of me
Held in your hands
All my fears
All my dreams

In our lives we sometimes wonder if God is aware of where we are on the journey….

Exodus 17:1-2  The Israelites left the desert and moved from one place to another each time the LORD ordered them to. Once they camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for them to drink. The people started complaining to Moses, “Give us some water!” Moses replied, “Why are you complaining to me and trying to put the LORD to the test?”

Did God not realize they had no water there?

Did he not check his map or google earth before stopping the cloud of his presence?

Did he forget to check the list of required “stuff” at this location?

Was God not aware of the needs of the poeple?

God sees all and knows all.

He was fully aware of where HE was and where the people were.

He totally comphended the needs of the poeople.

He knows OUR needs and sees where we are in life.  He knows the desire of our heart.

There was a bigger picture at work – a purpose for the poeople to stop at Rephidim.

God was teaching them to have faith in him and to trust him and to follow him and to see the wonders he could work.  He is the almighty God who parted the sea and provided manna and quail.  He is the God who delivered them from Egypt and slavery.

How did the people respond?  With faith and prayer?

No – they complained and dissed God.  THey did not trust him.

Where are you at in your journey?  Are you in a place with streams of water?  Are you in a dry and thirsty place?   Do you have a job?  Are your relationships going well?  Are you healthy?  Are you feeling fulfilled?

Are you trusting God?

Are you fixing your eyes upon Him and His might rather than looking at your circumstances?

Trust in the Lord Your God wth all your heart, all your mind, all your strength, all your understanding and dont rely on your own understanding of life.

this song always encourages me.  it always reminds me that God is with me.  no matter what i face.  no matter what road i walk down.  God is with me.

Genesis 20:1-2 Abraham moved to the Southern Desert, where he settled between Kadesh and Shur.  Later he went to Gerar and while there he told everyone that his wife Sarah was his sister.

 

Why do we repeat our sins?  We do we fall at the same thing?  We do we not learn from our mistakes?  We do we not change???

We do change – but usually it is not a click of the fingers change – but a process of falling and failing and learning – repeated mistakes and repeated forgiveness.  New grace and new beginnings path the way for change.

 

We are humans, frail and fleshly.  We seek to prtect ourselves – to fill ourselves – to support ourselves – to guide ourselves instead of letting God protect, fill and guide us.  We fail to put our trust in God and that manifests itself in our mistakes.

 

Abraham perhaps was learning to trust God – to trust his promises for protection and a son and generations to follow.  It manifests in his lies and attempts to protect himself. 

 

What are our sins saying about us?

God loves with a great love the man whose heart is bursting with a passion for the impossible.
