ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY -Have You Ever Felt A Direction That You Knew You Were Meant to Live Out?
Have you experienced a certain journey or lived a difficult story that you knew was meant to make a difference in the lives of others? Do you have creative gifts and talents that you long to use for something greater because you know your gifts are meant for more? Do you have a heartbeat for a group of people or type of work that stirs your heart each time you close your eyes to think of the potential that could be addressed? Perhaps, you have been working a “day gig” or struggling in a job or situation where you are wondering if you will ever move in that direction toward the vision and desire of your heart.
Be encouraged by these words. When the Lord has given you a vision or direction for your life, although you may try to be satisfied or fit into other situations that are safe or ordinary, He will never let you stay there. Why? Because the vision is His that He wants to accomplish. That heartbeat that you have for ministry, for those gifts, for those groups is not an accident or something you ate one morning. Before we ever had the vision or direction, He has been at work in us preparing, allowing situations (struggles, pains, joys, people, etc.) to happen to position us for that vision.
Yes, it gets difficult in the waiting and at times it feels that He has left us alone. But our Father has never left us alone. Quite the opposite. He is waiting on us to stop, rest, and trust Him to handle what He already knows.
Be encouraged. Your heartbeat, your vision, your desire will not fall to the ground. You have not failed. Don’t give up. He IS putting things in place for His vision that He placed in you that He WILL complete. Be still and know that He is God.
You can do this.
