Last week we discussed the results of stepping up and trusting Him in order to move up higher. So, what happens when the result of your following Him is not as you hoped, and maybe is so far beyond what you think you can handle or deal with? There’s no question we all begin to doubt and question that what you did wasn’t His plan. You wonder, “Where did I miss Him, which turn did I fail to make? God help me, am I doing things in the flesh? Why? Oh, why am I not soaring but instead am once again trudging through the deepest mud in the valley of the shadows?”
So how do we combat doubt so that we can continue living the abundant life, a life without regrets that is in no way selfish and self-centered, and that you continue to care more about others than yourself, conducting yourself as His bride?
It shows when you exhibit a calmness and regal response or reaction to what is being thrown at you or what you’re being thrown into—this reflects His love and proves (to others and to yourself) that you indeed haven’t missed Him at all. We know that throughout His life and anyone who has been called to live for Him, has encountered trials, but it’s in the peacefulness, the slow-moving and gracefulness, which speaks volumes and proves you haven’t missed Him.
When we were children we acted and reacted as such. Yet, now as we put away those childish behaviors we can confidently look into His face, finding our reassurance there—often without a word ever being spoken. Then with the gentle hand on the small of our back or the gentle taking of our hand, it’s almost as if He’s gliding us out onto a dance floor in the clouds. It’s He who will navigate us around the other couples who are whirling and swirling about. All we need to do is follow His lead. Clearly a life of no regrets.
