Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.
I constantly struggle to find the balance between faith and action. How much of my life is me acting upon the desires and abilities that I have, and how much of it is God working His will in my life as a response to my faith and obedience?
I am afraid sometimes that God might not give me the things that I desire ( I find that some of them are quite self-centered and self-glorifying when I look deep inside at my motives), but I realize that I can strive and work and push my entire life and all of my efforts might not be enough to produce the things that I desire.
On the other hand, God has promised that if I will commit, and trust, and delight, the He WILL act and He will give the desires of my heart.
I am no gambler. I think that I will take the sure thing.
It’s time to let go.
