Uncertainty.

A blog post that really spoke to me and where I’m at right now…

“There’s a quote from a devotion by Joe Stowell that I’ve often repeated to myself during times of uncertainty in the direction of life – “All I really need is enough light to keep moving forward.”

It’s a human thing to want to know what comes next. We want to know the plan and we want prepare accordingly. But God simply asks us to trust Him and take care of the tasks closest to us.

“Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

If we knew the details ahead of us than where would trust be? When would true growth take place? A growth that takes root in the Kingdom of Heaven. A growth that produces trust and trust that brings with it, as Oswald chambers said, “a joyful uncertainty and expectancy.”

We can be certain of one thing though, that God’s plans for us will never fail. In that same devotional, Joe Stowell uses a great analogy. He says it’s like driving a car at night. Our headlights never shine all the way to our destination; they only illuminate only about a hundred feet in front of us. But that doesn’t stop us from moving forward. We trust our headlights.

How well do we trust God?

Are we walking with God in the journey or are we just anxious for the outcome?

Are we allowing God to use the times of uncertainty to grow us or do we run away looking for an easier road?

Do we take God’s will into account when we make plans for our lives?
