I am choosing to trust God and stand on His promises even when my feelings beg me to feel anxious.
I REMEMBER – I have walked with the Lord long enough experiencing enough disappointments to know His path is the best path. When we ask Him to open a certain door that we think looks so good and He says no, it is for our good. Therefore if I choose to remember His past deeds of goodness as I can trust Him with the future.
His “no” is often for our PROTECTION… protecting us from something we can’t see. Maybe the sale of BiM to _____ was the very thing God used to protect them. As we look back on the deals that did not occur we can see many of the why’s behind the no (not yet) and trust that is His protection as well. Especially having a glimpse into these companies as some were sold off, ceased to exist, or lacked integrity.
His “no” could be for our PROVISION… providing something so much better than what we thought was the best thing. In our minds the best thing would have been for Brunswick to buy BiM, for the venture capitalist to fund the company, or for the WC to purchase BiM this past December. Who knows? Only God…so whether this time it’s ____, _____, or ____ or not, we are certain of His provision of His best for us.
His “no” could simply be part of the PROCESS of growing us closer to Himself… when we are weak, only then can we truly understand how He can be our strength. Whether that is strength to preserver, or strength to let this dream die, I pray we all will embrace this part of the process of growing closer to God.
Dear Lord I am so sorry for being discouraged at times but I never want to get stuck here. I don’t want to appear faithless to those around me. Please, help me to live victoriously through the power of Your Holy Spirit. Please, show me the way, and bring the word of Your unfailing love to me, that I may be comforted and that I may be a living testimony for You. May I trust you Lord; Trust your plan; Trust your timing; Trust your goodness. May I trust you with it all. Amen.
