“For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.”
-(Psalm 27:5, NIV)
How many times I have thought, Thy Will God, but can we please, please, just cross this other thing off my list, first. So I’m basically saying: Thy will be done, God, but I have a little caveat.
God is not just our safety net. Nor is He an afterthought. God is the sculptor of our world and the creator of our dreams. He sees the big picture for us. He lines us up with all the right people at precisely the right time.
I know all this and believe it with my whole heart but then occasionally I have a little nag in my head wanting more, or different. But mostly faster.
For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling. The mostly faster part of me wants things yesterday.
So I remember, God holds me until I am absolutely ready. Fully prepared and aligned in my faith so I can bring glory to Him.
He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. And I remind myself of these words. The Holy Spirit within me settles my anxieties and always shows me the way.
I am calm…I am set high upon a rock. Not waiting or with any kind of uncertainty. But in peace. Joy. If the nag shows up, she says you are not deserving of this.
Through this verse alone, I know I simply tune her out.
