I’m behind on my Bible reading.
I have been for some time now and I’m having a hard time getting back in the groove.
Surely I’m not the only one who does this?
But I”m not here today to talk about my downfalls … but about the Lord’s provisions in the midst of my downfalls!
You see, last night I began praying about something specific. As I was getting ready for bed I asked God if He wanted me to pursue this new thing in my life. I didn’t want to make a decision based on my own fleshly desires but wanted to walk in the Lord’s perfect will for my life.
Lord, is this something you want me to pursue? I don’t want to make a decision before I hear from you. I know I like the idea of this new thing but what would you like me to do? Because even though I like this idea, it also scares me to death. Not only is it something new and different but it would be a new location and new faces…and I’m comfortable right where I am. What would You have me to do? Do I pursue this new thing?
So I crawled in bed and even though it was late, I was bound and determined to get in at least one chapter before I went to sleep. I clicked on my Bible Reading Plan and backed up to where I am supposed to be and this is what I read…
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” – Genesis 12:1-3
Can I just tell you that I cried…
I know that I’m not saying exactly what I’m praying about… I will in time…but just know this…
…even when we are behind or lacking, God is enough and still right on time!
