Waiting on a train for another train to pass.
I don’t know the reason why the delay, I don’t know what has occured, or what I will face later down the track, but I trust the “Driver” to get me to the correct destination.
My response to the journey directly affects my destiny. I can panic and run for another train, to another “safe” location, or I can cling in faith to the one who knows my way. When he has tried me I will COME FORTH as gold.
My place of residence is not this trial, I am just passing through, and it is my desire to allow the process of getting from A-Z spiritually to transform me into a vessel He can use for His glory.
I want my prayers to affect nations, my ministry to impact thousands, not because its about me, but because gold reflects the glory of the Maker, and Master Designer. It’s all about Him.
I want Jesus to get the glory. To take out the impurities and blemishes that keep the world from seeing Him in me, that keep me from being a conduit of His power.
I want to lay down all resistance to Him and begin to walk in the flow… Where ever He takes me. And I admit, that the destination doesn’t always seem so clear, but I trust Him to plan the journey.
And to get me there.
I’m sticking with Him. For His thoughts are not my thoughts, His ways are not my ways. I would not, in my shortsighted humanity, have chosen the track I follow now, but His purposes were and are higher. And I want to go higher, to His presence and His will and in His way.
Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27:14
Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it]. Psalm 37:34
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
