When listening to a sermon by Steven Furtick, he spoke of a conversation he had with a friend who told him while he was aware of God doing something new in his life, he was not aware of the path he was to take. He also said during the sermon that God allows his chosen to be put in what appears to be impossible situation, to prove His presence is with you while you are experiencing it. I am in the realm of the experiential presently.
Some areas of my life seem to be impossible, with no solution in sight. Yet, at the same time, I know God is with me. those areas could be so much worse, yet it appears God is not allowing the worse to happen. I am learning to go to God for the least of requests to (in my mind seem to be) the large with no light at the end of the tunnel, and yet God is still God, and I am still here, and the things I need to continue living life are available to me. Little by little I am making changes, thinking of how things could be done differently, and better. The situations still remain, and I don’t see any solution, and wonder why I have not been given the answer.
This is the time when faith has to step in and rule the mind. This is the time when you can’t develop solutions of your own just to get out the invisibility of it all. It is the time when one is taught patience, maturity, and humble quietness of thought that deters wallowing in worry.
Here’s another thought. Until the invisible becomes visible and the answer comes to the forefront, I have to faithfully stand strong, and be obedient to God. How does one do that? Constant reliance in the Word of God, after all, how can one know how to be obedient, if one does not know what God Word says?
Next, allow God to teach you how to just hang with Him. Psalm 91 speaks of dwelling in the secret place of the Most High. And even those that are not of God seem to be finding their solutions, we are not to be envious, but rather Trust in the Lord, Delight in the Lord, and commit thy way to the Lord, as Psalm 37 says, even if you don’t know where to go. In time, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free from the invisible and the impossible, for with God all things are possible.
