The Happy Ending
Jeremiah 29:11 GNT: I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.
The pathway to the future we desire to have is not the easy road to go through. It’s laced with a series of encounters that require patience and endurance to become what you think you want to become.
The earnest desire of a baby is to be like the parents and people around him. After a series of attempts to walk like others, falling and rising. He finally becomes.
To be trained as a boxer, you’ll receive several punches and rigorous training that might want to discourage you and make you give up on the dream. But trusting your master that you desire to be like and with patience. You will be what you desire to be.
When a student is loaded with so many assignments, research and books to study. You will almost want to give up thinking your teacher hates you but with a little bit of endurance and patience and trust in your teacher, you will be what you aspire to be.
A true Christian’s desire is to be like Jesus. So when the Holy Spirit is taking you through some spiritual exercises, you have to trust Him. He may instruct you to fast often. He may wake you up in the dead of the night to pray and study the Scriptures. All these exercises might be a sort of inconvenience but in the end you will become what you desire to be.
In fact, you must trust Him with your entire life. Though you may be struggling with your finances now and He is instructing you to take some financially liberating steps that may not look like it now, but you’ve got to trust Him for that expected end.
Like a child you know what you want but to achieve it will be impossible without a guardian. Everyone likes a “happily ever after” life but we quickly forget the pathway that led to that sweet ending of the story.
Trust your Sailor. He is the Lord of Hosts and your Father. His thought is not to capsize the boat of your life. You will have that desire in the end.
Muse: For a “Happily ever after”, trust your heavenly Father.
Let us pray: Father, I trust You with my future. Do it Your way.
