“With God are wisdom and might; he has counsel and understanding.
If he tears down, none can rebuild; if he shuts a man in, none can open.
If he withholds the waters, they dry up; if he sends them out, they overwhelm the land.”
I'm in the middle of some crazy transitions. I'm ending some chapters of my life and starting a lot of brand new ones. I'm feeling uncertain. I'm even feeling a little bit like a failure, but I'm also feeling like I've been equipped for something really special. (More on this in the weeks to come.) I'll be honest, its hard when you want your life to be a certain way and God has different plans. We tend to think we know best and forget that God can do more amazing things than we can even fathom.
So, when I read this out loud at church this past Sunday, it hit me. If God doesn't want something for me, there is nothing I can do to make it happen. I cannot beat God. On the flip side, if God wants something to happen for me, He overwhelms. So, I'm going to choose to trust Him and faithfully go where He calls me, even if that's away from something He tore down or towards something He is blessing.
