We worry. We fret. We stay frozen in the starting blocks too fearful to move because we can’t get a clear view of what’s ahead.
In my experience, most of what we worry about never comes to pass. We watch opportunities pass us–ones we could have seized. Some are gone forever, but don’t panic. Ours is a God of more than enough, of expertise in making crooked paths straight. When no way exists, He’ll create one. We need only believe.
When troubles or concerns threaten, assess, but do so knowing that while we aren’t aware of the view ahead, and we don’t know what will happen, God does. He knew the end from the beginning. Our refuge is in knowing it. In trusting Him.
We know He is steadfast. That He will not abandon us, falter or fail us. So whatever happens, even the hard stuff, is all good. Sometimes you have to kiss toads to recognize a prince. Sometimes toads aren’t toads, but opportunities in and of themselves.
So fear not. He’s with you. He’s with all of us–even those who choose not to acknowledge Him. Do your part: assess, trust, and believe. Your path might be a mystery to you and while your view is limited, nothing about you or your future is a mystery to Him. His view is unlimited, and His mind set on your greatest good.
