Safest Place doesn’t mean Comfy Place
The safest place in the whole wide world is to be in the will of God.
Can we all say Amen! But what we don’t put together is that this does not mean it’s the most comfortable or most convenient place to be.
It is the safest place to be. There is a difference. You’re always secure in the palm of His hand. He walks with you. He talks with you. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy all the time. It doesn’t mean it’s convenient. Actually being in the center of God’s will for our lives can be getting down on our knees begging God what to do next, where to turn or go, and sometimes it means just being still until the storm passes and the sky clears up holding onto His hand.
Sometimes you will feel absolutely confident. You will feel happy. You feel like you’re on top of the mountain! And you should!!
Sometimes though you will feel all alone in the valley. Wondering how many nights will pass of restless sleep, tears falling, and unanswered questions. And when we have done everything right, we still wonder why?
God’s Will is not the definition of, “Everything is going to be easy”, but the definition of, “He is holding you no matter what”.
God often draws us out of our comfort zone to stretch us so that we will rely on Him. What would become of us if we depended on self? That is when we become unsafe.
Be encouraged to stay in God’s will where He wants you. Help others to stay in His will for their own lives as well. Paul says to do this in Hebrews 3:13. It’s a big unity circle, not a fighting rink.
*Teaching the Community Children is my favorite thing to do!! However, what you don’t see here is the filth and the trash they live in. You don’t smell the urine and all the spoiled food from the trash. We sometimes remove glass off the ground and lay a tarp down so we don’t have to sit in the dirt. This is where I feel safe.
