When God Directs, He Provides

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him by the glory...
— Ephesians 3:20

When God works, He makes the impossible possible.  When he shows us a tiny sliver of His majestic plans, it is easy to become overwhelmed and feel inadequate.  This is the point, however, when we must put our own self aside and trust.  Trust that He will provide.  He will carve out the time, provide the energy, arrange the resources, and align all of the necessary logistics.  All He wants from us is us... our willingness, our hearts, our enthusiasm, even our shortcomings and imperfections.  In our weakness, His power shines through!  So we have to lay down the excuses, take a deep breath to calm the anxieties, and only focus on what He is asking for us to do right now.  One faithful step at a time, we can become a small part of something truly phenomenal for His glory!

So, dear friends, if you sense God moving and directing you in your life, take that first faith-filled step and be excited!  God is going to do something amazing!  I am writing this for you as well as for myself as I am at this cross-roads in my life.  I feel like God is about to use me for something much bigger than I ever could have imagined.  Though it can easily seem intimidating, I'm learning to take my thoughts of inadequacy captive, calm the anxiety about what seems overwhelming, pray for discernment and direction... and take the first step, knowing He will be there to guide me each step of the way.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.
— 1 Chronicles 28:20
