Peace family, do you ever find yourself running ahead of God? My cats recently reminded me how important it is to watch out for this!
Over the weekend, my cats had informed me that they were hungry, and I was carrying one, but the other two scrambled and ran ahead to their food dish. Even the cat in my arms seemed concerned that she would be last to the food dish. I thought about how silly it was of them to panic and rush ahead. There wouldn’t be any food in the dish until I’m there to serve it anyway, so they might as well wait for me!
Peace family, don’t we do that in our lives? Sometimes, we lay aside our convictions and try to get what we think we need. We worry about being left behind by everyone else. We rush ahead because we are afraid of missing out on a blessing, but the fact is, there isn’t going to be a blessing unless God is there.
Let’s rest in the peace that we can have today, knowing that the only real blessings we need, are ones that include God. He understands that we are just little people, made from dust, and yet He loves us and extends grace to us. We can trust his wisdom, and his goodness, and rest assured that he will take care of us.
