I was feeling really flat this morning, quite emotional and insecure. Some days life just gets to you, you know? I’m doing my best to follow God, seek Him and His plan for my life but sometimes its just tough going. I begin to doubt my calling, doubt that God knows what He’s doing. So many questions “when will I see the next step? When will God provide for us? Why am I stuck in this job when I want to be doing so much more?”
I needed to hear from God today so I went to Examen.Me and it randomly chose an Old Testament passage for me.
The passage was Genesis 25:19-34 and this is what God spoke into my heart as I read and reflected on it:
Do not despise what I have placed in your heart, what I have given to you. It is right to want to be more than you are but you must first be who I am calling you to be… connect with me, trust in me and follow me. Don’t look too far ahead, do not try to predict what I will do, just trust that I will lead you, guide you and provide for you.
Don’t sell your birth right as Esau did, do not settle for the “food” of this world for it will not satisfy, but wait for Me, trust in Me, pray to Me and learn from Me, I will sustain you, I will raise you up and I will fulfil My promise to you…
I love how amazing God is, forever faithful to His promises and loves to speak into our lives.
Thank you God for speaking to me this morning, for responding to me as I cried out to You. May this blessing you have given me also bless others.
