"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."
1 Corinthians 2:9
I have featured this verse in a previous blog post, but since God brought me to it again tonight, I want to share it again.
1 Corinthians 2:9 reassures me that God's ways are far superior to my own understanding, but having faith in him will allow me to have his will done in my life.
God's will for us trumps our most amazing dreams and aspirations. We are, each one of us designed by him - in his image, for greatness. By keeping our eyes focused solely on the cross, by seeking God and his ways first with blind faith, we allow God's will for our lives to take over.
When I am overwhelmed by the things of this world, I literally close my eyes and picture the cross in front of me in the distance down a long road. I then imagine all of my worries off on the each side of the road. I concentrate on running towards the cross while he takes care of keeping my path to him clean. God will take care of those things on the sidelines if I keep my focus on him.
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
