You Have Not Reneged on God

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV


As I sit here in front of my computer thinking about what I should share with you today, my mind keeps going back to the fact that we’re in the month of October — the 10th month — 45 weeks, 75 days, 1,812 hours,  108,776 minutes, and 6,526,616 seconds from the end of the year.

During this time of the year, if not before, many begin to think about life, its purpose, and one’s destiny. What has been accomplished, and what is left to do to finish the year strong.

There may be a feeling of disappointment for some because they didn’t complete all they had envisioned. But, for others, there will be feelings of joy, happiness, and empowerment because they met all their goals and are right on track.

Nonetheless, no matter where you fall on the spectrum, know that there still is a plan and a purpose for you. Just as God had Jeremiah to tell Israel that He knew the plans He had for them, I tell you today; God knows the plans He has for you. His plans are set to prosper you and to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Our timing, thoughts, and ways are not comparable to God’s.

The Father says, “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work. For as the sky soars high above the earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.” (Isaiah 55:9, MSG)

So, I ask you. According to whose standards are you behind or not where you should be on life’s journey?

Yes, there are times when we miss the target due to uncertainty and life. But there are also times when we hit the bullseye by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, NIV)

Just because goals and plans were not met when we felt they should have been doesn’t mean the year was a washout.

Think of matters this way. They say the quickest way to a point is a straight line. So, let’s just say you took the scenic route through the countryside. If you believe and trust God, you’re still going to get to your expected end — your destiny.

 “…You must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8, NLT)

I genuinely believe there is an acceleration happening in the dimension of time. Things that would have taken us 2 to 3 years to accomplish, God will bring them into fruition in a matter of weeks or days.

I encourage you to keep pressing towards the goal.

You see. The race is not given to the swift but to the one who endures to the end. It doesn’t matter how quickly you get there. The most important thing is that you get there.

So, release the pressure. Lean into the Father. And listen.

Holy Spirit will be there to tell you how, when, and where.

Keep the faith. You’ve got this!
