I find I am in a pondering state of mind.
So many twists and turns in the road .......... which way to turn.
When faced with the turns in the road it can often lead one to want to change the circumstances. The only problem with that thought -- when God gets ready to change a person he orchestrates sets of circumstances
to bring about those changes.
When I elect to change what he has set in motion.......then the tests will have to incur again, just in a different set of circumstances.
So.....I think or should I say, I know that Satan plants "what if" thoughts in our minds and if are not careful we will be off and running.
Running from the purpose God has for us--filled with discontent and unrest.
I am where I am for a reason.
He is molding me into the image of His son.
So that when I grow up in Christ, the head of the church---
I will be fit to fight alongside the King of Kings.
Will I choose to acknowledge the test or will I just see the circumstances of a life and become discouraged and want to move on?
The choice is mine and yours.
Will you stay?
After having done all to stand.......will you stand?
Will you stand?
"The secret is Christ in me, not me in a different set of circumstances."
