It may feel like you are sitting right now but actually Planet Earth is moving around the sun at 67,000 mph making a full revolution every 24 hrs. So the next time you feel like you’ve had an unproductive day, remind yourself that you traveled more than 1.5M miles in space today!
“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” — Ps 37:23
God is a God of order. His plan for mankind has order. Therefore I believe my life has order. But when I feel stuck in a role or in a position beneath me, I question God because I can’t see how this is contributing towards my purpose. I’m sure a few of these men felt the same way;
- Joseph was sold into slavery before becoming VP of Egypt
- David was running lunches to his brothers before he became king
- Elisha was plowing a field when Elijah called him
- Moses was waiting in a desert for 40 years before God gave him his assignment
I think sometimes we are tempted to fabricate the means in getting us to our destiny because on surface it doesn’t appear to have meaning. We want to avoid running lunches, sitting & waiting, and plowing fields. It’s not exciting, it’s hard work, and often a grind. But God says, trust me in the small. Trust my order of events for your life. Just do your assignment and let me give you the promotion on my timetable. Serve his purpose not yours.
Do you believe He has an order in your life too?
We don’t doubt God’s ability to keep the planets in orbit but we have a difficult time believing He can keep our lives in order. I often believe He’s making a mistake in my daily grind and needs my help getting me in position of my purpose. However I’m finding that my purpose develops out of these daily activities because they drive my experiences, passions, and heart.
Are you trying to fulfill your purpose out of order?
