I thought maybe I’d have the manuscript for my first book in hand by now. But no, there have been a number of setbacks this year, including a painful time of recovery from a car accident in February. So I asked God for Holy Spirit eyes—how does He view obstacles?
Just as they’ve been for me, have the last few months been for you a rich source of connectedness with Him who provides times of meditation? Have you had a chance to reframe this season and then share it with others? God wants us to know Him deeper. Richer. Fuller.
When we get frustrated, let’s go to Acts 5:38,39, when Gamaliel says of Peter and the other apostles, “If this plan or action is of men, it will be overthrown; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them; or else you may even be found fighting against God.”
God’s plan can’t be thwarted. Our Heavenly Father’s timing, like His will, is good and pleasing and perfect.
What plans are you reshuffling as God forges on ahead?
