Turning a corner. Ever been waiting for that to happen? A figure of speech, yes, but a very important one when you’ve been waiting a long time for something to happen.
If you’ve been walking with me a while, you know that our destination has been someplace very definite. These past couple of weeks have been very interesting ones in that regard. I can definitely say that I have been turning a corner!
I am closer than ever to being able to finally tell you the story behind our destination. And you’re not going to want to miss this! I know I have been dropping hints here and there. But that still hasn’t really given you anything substantial to know what it is that I am talking about here. What I can tell you right now is that any frustration you might feel about that will be well worth it in the end! Very soon, I will be able to tell you this fantastic tale.
God’s plan for our lives is so much better than anything we could ever ask for or imagine (His Word tells us that in Jeremiah 29:11 and Ephesians 3:20). It is when nothing appears to be happening and life seems like it’s just a monotonous day-to-day existence that it is the hardest to remember that truth. But don’t forget this important fact: When you do finally turn that corner, it makes what you’re going through in the waiting process totally worth enduring!
And there’s also something else to keep in mind. God’s plan is also about strategy. Don’t forget that we have a very real enemy who is also watching to see what God’s plan is. His intention is to interfere with that plan as fast as he can. Thankfully, God knows this and accounts for it. Thus, His strategy is far more a significant factor than we’ve ever thought it was.
So when God’s plan begins to unfold and take shape in your life, be ready! Quite often it comes as something that doesn’t make much logical sense to do. Don’t over-think it. Act. Act on it now while everyone around you–including your enemy–is still wondering what you’re doing. You act that fast, you’ll find that you are in possession of your Dream before anyone else even realizes what’s happened.
I can hardly wait to tell you why I know what I’m talking about here! Make sure you’ve got your snowshoes with you, my friend. They are a part of this more than you know.
