“A life changing experience.”
That’s exactly what it was like being in Israel. Every place we went, every sermon preached, touched me in a different way.
My most favorite place was Peter’s Primacy.
This is where Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him, but when it came down to costing him something, he gave in.
But following Jesus is an invitation of faith, and not knowing the whole staircase, but continuing to trust Him and His work step by step.
“A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.” Proverbs 16:9
I’ve realized in my own life that sometimes I would rather plan my life and then ask God to bless those plans. But that’s not how it works.
He has a greater plan in store for me and He wants my desires more than I want them.
“Jesus is radically devoted to changing me. The work He wants to do in me is directly related to the change He does in me” – Kaleb White
I’ve realized that I didn’t want to change and do things that weren’t comfortable to me. But God’s taught me that if I want to grow in my relationship, I need to go outside of my comfort level and do things He’s asked of me, even if I don’t want to.
Because… His will be done.
I am thankful for the grace He shows me every day and that He will always hold onto to me, even if I let go.
How has God shown you that His plans are greater than your own?
What is one thing you tried to do apart from God in your life? How did it affect you negatively? What good came from the experience?
What is one change God is asking you to make? How will this change affect your future?
