I know I'm not the only person who struggles with impatience and an insatiable need to know what lies ahead for me. Don't you sometimes wish that God would just tell you how something will turn out, so you don't have to face indecision or bad decisions? For instance, what if God would tell you the career that is best for you. Then, you wouldn't spend extra time in school, getting bad grades or constantly switching majors. But maybe you went through that because you needed to be more humble. Or, once you get to your dream career, couldn't God just show you how far you would go? Not likely because you might be too anxious too get there and try to take a short cut to the top. Ah, but what about relationships? I mean couldn't God have told me that my marriage wouldn't? Well, He did, but I didn't listen because I wanted to prove that I could make it work.
Sometimes, God can't tell us where we are headed because there are things that He needs to fix in us, so we don't mess up our opportunities. Sometimes, when God does reveal something about our future, we try to make it happen instead of letting God control how it happens. Sometimes, we don't listen to what God does reveal because it is not what we want to hear. In essence, God won't tell us everything that will happen because we can't handle the truth. He gives us what we can handle and He knows what we can bear. Trust Him and be patient. The best is yet to come. Ms. EV
