Throughout this year, each day of the month, I'm "Treasure Hunting" in a Psalm. I've created a "Ponder Every Morsel of Truth" Book to record the truths as I learn them. The twenty-third of each month, I'm studying Psalm 57. Here's what Treasure I found today.
I will cry to God Most High, Who performs on my behalf and rewards me [Who brings to pass His purposes for me and surely completes them]! Psalm 57:2 (AMP)
I’m thankful that it is God who “performs on my behalf”. God is the one who will work to complete His purpose and plan in my life.
Complete. Full. Nothing missing.
As I’ve mentioned before I’m a planner. I like to research and “know what’s coming”. Yet, life isn’t really like that. We have no way of knowing what will happen today. But God does.
The past few months, I’ve been working with my pain management doctor regarding a new spinal stimulator to help lessen my pain. Everything I researched about this new stimulator, seemed like “just thing thing I needed”. However, after the trial, we all knew that at this time, it’s not the right direction to go.
What I didn’t know is that God had something “waiting in the wings” for me to try. He timed it perfectly so that I could try an acupuncture device. God had a plan in place. Wether or not the acupuncture device will work, I don’t know... but God does. And if it doesn’t work, He will continue showing me His plan.. ONE STEP AT A TIME!
One step at a time.... but I like to jump ahead! But the way God works is step by step—not leap frog. When I try to jump ahead of God’s plan or decide to “go out on my own”, I end up in a mess or having to back track and things just take so much longer. And those detours that I create are not much fun. And when I play leap frog, I miss the amazing blessing God has for me along His journey.
God is the one who will work to complete His purpose and plan in my life. It’s God’s job to do the work! My responsibility is to make sure I’m following Him.... step by step ... and stop playing leap frog!
To create a positive day, I need to let God work and follow Him step by step—not play leap frog.
