We like to have our ducks in a row. We like to know how all of the pieces of the puzzle will fit together.
We like to plan ahead to avoid chaos. We like to know what’s going to happen in advance.
So when many of us approach God’s Word, we are very uncomfortable with not being able to understand.
We are very uncomfortable with the unpredictability of the Spirit.
That’s why surrendering to Jesus is so unsettling. It means we give Him control of our lives. It means we may not know what going to happen next. It means He may not tell us how all of puzzle pieces will fit together. It means things may look and feel like chaos sometimes.
We must trust this God who completely holds the entire Universe in his hand. He organized. Efficient. He’s a planner. He’s is very purposeful in all that He does. He’s in FULL control!
And He loves us.
He refuses to give us anything less than His very best.
He considers EVERY possible option.
Everything our hearts long for is out there in that unknown, unpredictable, unsettling place. The place that you resist. The place you’ve been trying to avoid. The place that seems so foolish.
That place… is with Jesus.
Will you allow yourself to become comfortable with the uncomfortable?
Is a beautiful, wonderful place. It’s the place where love reigns supreme. It’s the place where my heart’s deepest desires are met. It’s the place where I’m given the privilege to see and experience things that I’ve never even imagined. I admit. It’s like free falling. But… it’s good!
We can be comfortable with the uncomfortable, because Jesus is with us.
