Are you looking for something new in your life? Would you like for there to be a change in a positive direction? Have you made attempts only to run into roadblocks? Will you open your eyes to see what God is doing in your life?
We often yearn to make changes in our lives. We long to improve our lives. However, far too often we take action to do so based on our shortsighted human perspective. Our approach to satisfy the immediate or near term wants.
God also has a plan for the short-term, but His short-term plan prepares for and leads into the long-term plan. His plan takes steps today that sets us up for tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, and next decade. He has a plan to do something in our lives if we will only follow His plan.
We may wonder how God knows what steps to take. So quickly do we forget. God has seen all of history already. He has seen all possible choices we may choose. We pray for God to change our situations, while He sets situations to cause us to follow Him. Our last option to choose Him comes on our deathbed.
God is doing a new thing every day of our lives. We merely need to be observant, see what He is doing. He may not be doing what we desire. But He is doing what He sees needs to be done to draw us to Him. After all, He desires all of mankind to come to Him, to save everyone. He is willing to do whatever it takes, short of forcing us. He sent His Son to die for us to make it possible for each of us to be saved.
I pray we all see what God is doing in our lives. I pray we see beyond our immediate wants. I pray each one of us choose to follow God’s plan for us, starting by asking Him to help us see it. Seek what God seeks for you. See what God is doing. See how He is preparing you. Reflect on what He has done. Choose to follow His plan for you.
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”
