He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
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.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Ever feel like you’re going in circles? Or like you’re stuck? You pray, pray, pray and then pray some more and nothing? You are a good church going believer and you do all that you know what to do but still, nothing. Maybe you’re doing too much. Yes, too much. Maybe it’s a season for staying still, maybe you’re not suppose to go get what you need, maybe God wants to show you that He can bring it to you. Sometimes we think that were helping God with whatever it is were in need of or striving for in this life and really all were doing is being intrusive of His plans, because well, He knows the plans! Sometimes we act like God needs our help but in reality sometimes all he needs from us is to stay still, stay put and let our faith be what moves Him into our lives to bring those miracles and prayers into existence. This world as it is already distracts us so much from listening to Him when He speaks to us, because He does, everyday, all day. We’re so busy doing and saying and asking and praying and going, we forget that God moves on simple faith, faith as small as a mustard seed, something so small can move mountains, Jesus words not mine. Let’s not pray any longer as if we’re in desperate need but pray with faith that whatever we need has already been provided and instead of having mournful prayers let’s give Him praise for the things we cannot see but with the assurance that it has been provided to us. He knows. Trust Him. So then, if you feel like you think you’ve tried everything and you’re still in a place of uncertainty, stop, stay still and let you faith be what moves you forward into God’s will.
Father, precious, wonderful, father. I’m sorry if I’m doing too much, if I’m missing out on your plans for me because I won’t stay still. Lord, help to stay put, to continue to serve you and please you with every area of my life, but to also stay still so that I’m able to listen to the whisper of your promises. Lord, today I take a deep breath and hand over anything that I’ve tried to control on my own, knowing that you very well know the plans that you have for me and my future. What an amazing God you are. Thank you for allowing to always run to you even when I’ve made mistakes. Lord give me that peace that surpasses all understanding so that I may stay still while you work on the details behind the scenes. I trust you. I trust you. I trust you. In Jesus name Amen.
