“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.” Psalm 16 verse 6
I love to make plans that can often drive my husband crazy. I used to have his Saturday planned before he even opened his eyes! As you can imagine that no longer happens! What I love about the Lord is that He is a planner too. He is into detail. The incredible thing is that God is so good at paying attention to the details in our lives, getting us in the right place at the right time with the right people that we don't need to be. That’s not saying we are to be careless but rather care free - there’s a difference.
When I look at my life so far I see many times when I had ideas about how to work things out myself, I see all the things I've tried and either failed or never really seen great fruit from. Then I look at the times I let go, surrendered and trusted my loving heavenly Father. Where do I find success? Whenever He orders my steps.
Learning to rest and trust is the easiest advice to give and the hardest to do. It makes no sense to the carnal mind. It actually offends us and yet when we step back and allow God to do his work we can truly say… “The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.”
