For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9
Life happens! We travel over mountains and in valleys; come up on some major pot holes at times, and there are days on our journey through life that we just have no clue as to what to do. Ever been there? I have. To be honest, I'm there now. My family has been on street "Don't know what to do" for about two months now. My husband and I just decided that since we didn't know 'what' to do, we just wouldn't do anything. First of all, not doing anything goes against both our grains. We are doers, we are fixers! But, may I testify today and tell you that God has been faithful. We've had that peace we read about in Philippians 4:7. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
This is how I've prayed: "God, if we need money, provide it. God, if there is some place we need to go, open the door. Open doors no man can close. Close doors no man can open. I don't know what to ask for, but You know what I need. I ask you to supply those needs. Give us wisdom, give us peace, and make the path You'd have us travel plain." He has answered over and over again the past two months. He has shut some doors, He has opened some doors, He has supplied our needs, He has provided us with peace and joy, He has been more than enough! Looking through my human eyes at the pot-hole we came upon in life, I would cry and be very discouraged. When I look at God's Word and put it all in His hands, I have that peace that passes all understanding. I didn't understand, I still don't, but God does. Sometimes we know what to do during a situation, sometimes we don't. When we don't, just be still and let God move. When I'm down to nothing; God's up to something! Just as the Shunammite woman answered Elisha's servant; I can most assuredly say, It is well.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
