Day 14 God is in the Process
Updated: Apr 5, 2020
Greetings Friends! It’s day 14 of 21 days of prayer. Now say this out loud ~ God is in the process! In Genesis 22:6-8, we see Abraham with his son Isaac. It says he "made Isaac carry the wood for the sacrifice...As they walked along together, Isaac said, “Father!” He answered, “Yes, my son?” Isaac asked, “I see that you have the coals and the wood, but where is the lamb for the sacrifice?” Abraham answered, “God himself will provide one.”
Our obedience to God's
will increases our trust in him.
And the two of them walked on together." Then a little further in verses 12 -13, we see how God rewarded Abraham's faithfulness as well as Isaac's for being obedient. The angel said, “Now I know that you honor and obey God, because you have not kept back your only son from him.” Abraham looked around and saw a ram caught in a bush by its horns. He went and got it and offered it as a burnt offering instead of his son." From this passage it's clear that sometimes we don't understand why life happens the way it does or why we are instructed by God to do things a certain way. Our obedience to God's will increases our trust in him. God wants us to trust Him. He wants us to trust His process. As a result, our faith increases. We must remain confident that God will provide. This confidence is gained through obedience and trusting in God's plan especially when God's process challenges us. The purpose of the process is to provide an opportunity for us to grow in obedience, trust, and faith in God's plan.
Trust his process.
Say this prayer: Lord, let my life line up with Your will. Inspire my ideas and vision so that I may walk confidently in the good way. Thank you for being in the process. Thank you for providing food, clothes, and all my needs as I go through the process. The next time I am walking, carrying a load and can't see how I will finish what I started, help me to trust your divine design and remember that you are God in the process. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to grow in obedience, trust, and faith in your plan. Thank you for being God in the process.
