I’m sitting in the parking lot this morning at my job waiting. Waiting to go in because they won’t let us in until 8. This is been my routine for the last 6 weeks. Drive to Dallas get here at 7 and wait for an hour before I can go to work.
I begin asking the Lord to please go before me today. Then I had this thought. Am I asking the Lord to do something for me that he’s already doing? Better yet am I telling him to do something that he’s already doing?
Then my next thought was, where is the trust? I find more often than not when I have anxiety or fear it’s a lack of trust. You could say unbelief as well. Lord help me with my unbelief.
I need to remember that God is laying out my path and setting my steps before me. When I think about the old Michael Jackson video Billie Jean where he’s walking on those lighted tiles the only ones that light up are the ones that he’s stepping on. I have to remember that He’s in my steps and He lights them up. He doesn’t worry about my past. He’s not worried about my future, just what He’s lighting up today.
This job in Dallas is almost over and if there’s one thing that I’ve learned. I haven’t been trusting the process.
I have been giving a huge lesson on perseverance.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isa 41:10
