Do you ever feel like you are always jumping one step ahead of God?
I tell myself that I will follow His lead, but it seems like at the end of the race I feel this need to jump ahead of HIs plans and take control of the situation.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
This verse runs through my head. It says to ask and to seek. However, it also says that the door will be opened for me. It does not say that I can open the door.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
As I start this day, I am going to spend some time being still and listening. I am going to try to wait patiently on the Lord and not jump ahead of Him. I am waiting to see if He will open the door to my heart desires or if He will lead me through another open door.
