He knows…

Exodus 32:1

When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Remember in Exodus when Moses went up to the mountain to be with God, Moses was receiving very important wisdom but the people started to feel like Moses was taking so long and they started to tell Aaron their concerns. Now, Aaron chosen by God you would think he’d tell the people to be patient but instead he made the idols for them!

We get so impatient sometimes even as Christians, we start to get shaky when we don’t know what’s next, we sometimes tend to move away from God’s will trying to make things happen when God clearly is the one in control. What do we think we’re doing really? Helping God? If anything it’s a bit intrusive really. He tells us to be still and yet we still do the opposite only to mess up God’s plan. His ways are not our ways and neither is his timing. We’re so stubborn sometimes even when we know that our hands can never do what Gods hands can do. We totally make things worse when we intrude and it’s only that by God’s grace that he leads us back into his will. Wow. I’d be in a bad place if it wasn’t for his grace. Yes, I’m guilty of completely causing all sorts of mess for myself when God was trying to make my paths straight. It was only after the fact that it was clear that God was definitely in control and that He definitely loved me so much that when he says He knows the plans he has for me, He truly does.

Lord, help me to trust you more with the things I don’t have any control over. Guide me into your will and give me the wisdom to be able to recognize and to know that you are my creator my wonderful Father who loves me and wants the best for me. You are such a good Father, but sometimes I  let others words get into my thoughts and then it goes into my heart, next thing you know I am so far away from your will because I believe what others have said instead of trusting and having faith in you. Lord forgive me. Lord guide me. Lord give me wisdom. In Jesus name Amen.
