Yes…God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. All those times when you feel like He isn’t listening or He doesn’t understand, He is there watching you and saying “Sweetie, I created you. No one can understand you like I do”. Of course no one can, or do you understand a product better than its manufacturer?
Sadly enough, we forget this so many times and we forget the beautiful feeling of relief, peace and satisfaction we get when we leave it all to God to lead, to direct us.
I remember the story of some men lost in a forest. They had a compass with them to direct them but after they had followed it for a while, the road began to look different and unfamiliar. They were soon convinced that the compass was broken and so they couldn’t depend on it for directions. They began to find their way out themselves. As expected, they ended up getting even more confused. In the end, they resorted to the supposed broken compass and that is what led them out of the forest safely.
Many times, we feel like God is not doing it right. Like there is a better way or an easier way simply because the road looks rough or unfamiliar. Well God has a compass I’m super sure it isn’t broken. He knows exactly where and how to lead you so all you have to do is trust Him and not depend on your own abilities.
The story of David and Goliath again brings to mind one thing – Trust!!!`The Israelites always found it very hard to just trust God and so when they saw Goliath, they were only thinking about the Big Philistines, forgetting about the Big God. Then young David came, trusting the Big God all the way and with a single stone and a sling, down went Goliath. No one takes down a giant with a single stone but David was so confident. He knew it was God leading him and even though it seemed really stupid, he took the risk.
We may feel that God’s plan for us is really stupid sometimes but we have to simply trust and obey; bearing in mind that God’s compass is not broken!!!
Keep trusting God.
