Right now I feel like my life is extremely chaotic! There are so many things I want to do, but I have to evaluate whether they are what God has planned for me. As I was studying God’s Word this morning, He led me to Psalm 103:1-5 (I say this because my devotional had a different passage listed – Psalm 131:1-5, but apparently I saw Psalm 103:1-5 so that’s where I turned):
Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits –
Who forgives all your sins, and heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
Who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s (NIV, 1984).
After reading these verses, I felt completely blown away. So many times I forget to just praise Him because I am unloading my list on Him.
I have a desire in my heart that has been there for several years. As I attempt to determine whether to step out and do it, I remember that He tells me that He will satisfy my desires with good things. How incredible!! If I will just let go, do what He wants me doing and trust Him to provide – He will!
How many times have you held on to things strictly for security purposes instead of trusting that He loves you and will take care of what you need? I have done it for way to long…it’s time for a change!!
