I am purposely waiting

The Word of God tells us that we, as His people perish for lack of vision (Hosea 4:6) . Other versions say lack of knowledge. It emphasizes the importance of knowing. We have to know what to do and what to not do and God delights in teaching His children. He delights in guiding His sheep but more importantly He delights in a surrendered and unhurried heart .

Without knowledge, we are certainly in a dangerous position. We are right where the enemy wants us to be, in ignorance. He is the father of lies and takes pleasure in deceiving us . The great news is that The Mighty One, Jesus, likes empty vessels.  He loves to find people He can fill with truth and knowledge. If you are in a position where you don't know what the next move is, where you don’t know who is who and who is not who, where you don't know what to think and what to not think : You are in the greatest place a human being can ever be. If you were Mr Or Mrs all-knowing, you would be God and not of a good use for Him. Rejoice in the unknown. Thank your Master because He is faithful to finish what He has started (Philippians 1:6). If He revealed Himself to you, that’s enough. Read Jeremiah 9 verse 24 with me : ‘’But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone, that they truly KNOW ME and understand that I am the Lord who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the Lord, have spoken!’’. Let’s take a look at the Darby version too : ‘’mais que celui qui se glorifie, se glorifie en ceci, qu'il a de l'intelligence et qu'il ME CONNAIT ; car je suis l'Éternel, qui use de bonté, de jugement et de justice sur la terre, car je trouve mes délices en ces choses-là, dit l’Éternel.’’ Knowing Jesus is enough. Trust Him to reveal the rest of the plan later. Prioritize this moment. Prioritize the season you are in and the lessons you are learning in this class. Don’t worry about the next classes. Don’t compare yourself to those who are in an other season of their journey. You are not left behind. God created time, He is not in a hurry so neither should you. He wants you to know more much more than you want that  for yourself. He cannot wait to share the love and glory that your story contains with you. Trust Him to reveal more in due time. Make peace with the unknown being assured that Jesus loves you and won’t disappoint you. He never did and He won’t start now. Be busy reconnecting with the unhurried God during this season, with the God who created time and who knows how to manage and to restore it.

Daniel called Him the Ancient of days because He holds the present, the past and the future. He has everything planned. Rest in His arms. Don't let the enemy feed your desire to know everything "right here, right know" with his lies. Don’t let Him fool you with his counterfeits. Wait patiently. Wait and listen carefully. As you follow Jesus you won’t be too fast, you won't be too late, you will run in the perfect pace and the perfect  rhythm.

Prayer : Father, we are sorry for wanting to rush the beautiful process you have put us in. Teach us Your ways at Your own pace. We love You and we trust You. Help us to not choose disobedience. Thank you for  answering this prayer in Jesus’ name, amen.
