First, I wanna start the conversation off by saying that I believe that God has plans for us that we know not of.
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Second, I'd like to add that Not Knowing what my plans are sometimes makes me psychologically "itchy". lol
My default mental paradigm is that of a strong, educated, vocal woman who enjoys a certain amount of control over her life.
But that mental paradigm, though fostered by good ole American "Can Do" thinking, is spiritually flawed.
Have you ever noticed that most of the time, life makes more sense when seen through the rear view mirror?
The Final point of today's message is this:
My God is not a linear God.
I can not map His steps.
I do not know what He will do or where He will take me.
My God is a 3D God who is over and under and beside and within...and all around His Children.
(Yes, even those of us who are on the merry go round.)
Though invisible, He is at work in my life Today.
Though invisible, He is at work in my life for Tomorrow.
And when I contemplate all of the Yesterdays of my life, I have come to realize that God's presence and guidance are often BEST visible in Life's Rearview Mirror.
