Scripture Reading: Mark 8 :22-26
Date: 26 September 2021
As children of God, at times we tend to forget that life is by no means linear. God did not promise us a trial and tribulation-free journey, what he did promise is that as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death (emphasis on walkthrough) he will be our present help, strengthen us and ensure we come out of every valley victorious.
Life’s nonlinearity of course is not without divine purpose. God being all-knowing and all-knowing how, created a perfectly sequenced process that each of us have to undergo in order to behold the fulfillment of his promises in our lives.
God’s word teaches us that His ways are not our ways. However, when God starts his process of weeding out what’s not needed in our lives and it gets uncomfortable, painful, and scary, we then start to question his methodology.
Beloved, rest assured that the thoughts God has about you are exclusively to give you, peace, prosperity, and the brightest future!
However, this will only be possible if you allow God to take your hand and guide you through his process just as he did the blind man in the above-quoted passage of scripture.
You need not be afraid of the process beloved, God knows what he is doing. Trust in him and lean not on your own understanding and you will be guaranteed success!
