Over the last few years, I’ve been able to visit the ocean and it never failed each time God taught me something new! There’s something about watching a rush of waves fall into the shore that completely demonstrates God’s majesty and I get lost in it! I press in listening and waiting.
This last visit was with my HUSBAND on our HONEYMOON! That statement alone is something I never thought I would say, but here we were sitting on the beach together. When I look at Alec, I’m reminded of God’s provision in His timing. If it were up to me, I would have been married right after I graduated college, but God had something else in store much later than my plans. ALEC!
I think it’s easy to get caught up in the world’s timeline of things, but when I look at the waves, they obey God. They do as God says. He says to BE STILL and the waters are still. The waters aren’t doing it when the world says to, but when God says it’s time, they listen.
So what does that mean for you?
What if you started living not on your timeline, but on God’s?
What if you started listening to His way sooner instead of the world’s timeline?
How would that change your life?
The answers to those questions are crucial. God doesn’t just want to be your God when you want it, but ALL. THE. TIME. He wants to lead literally every step of the way. The waves don’t sometimes listen to God, they always listen to God.
Are you sometimes listening or always listening?
At the end of this trip to the ocean, I see God mightier than ever. I think that’s why waiting is good and I think that’s why God tells His people to wait all throughout Scripture. The lessons He wants to teach you in the waiting are absolutely crucial, but you have to let God be in control always!
Do you believe in His might in and for every circumstance?? God is mighty! Rest in it!
Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the LORD on high is mighty!– Psalm 93:4
