We tend to doubt or turn our faces away from God’s plans and wisdom for our lives because, somewhere in the back of our minds, we think we know better than Him. We have this outline about how our lives should go, how things have to be done. We are not satisfied with the security He offers (because we don’t really see it as it is, distracted we are by what we think we need to be secure) and therefore make decisions to carry out plans we believe will secure ourselves.
But we do not realize that we have to trust Him. With our whole lives. Not just for today, but also for every day, hour, minute, and second after this. Because He is faithful. Because it is true that ‘God’s got us.’ We don’t need to know what the next step will be after we take that step He invites us to take. Just know that it will be what is best, not merely because it is what it is, but because God says it is.
Work in faith, and leave results with God. Pray in faith, and the mystery of His providence will bring its answer. At times it may seem that you cannot succeed. But work and believe, putting into your efforts faith, hope, and courage. After doing what you can, wait for the Lord, declaring His faithfulness, and He will bring His word to pass. Wait, not in fretful anxiety, but in undaunted faith and unshaken trust.—(Testimonies for the Church 7:245.) –
Do not neglect the spiritual gift that is in you, which was given to you when the prophets spoke and the elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things and devote yourself to them, in order that your progress may be seen by all.
When I stand before God at the end of my life,I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say ,”I used everything you have me”
Faith is Acting on What you Believe ❤
