If you are anything like me, you too dislike #uncertainty. How it likes to keep us off kilter and often distracted. Grumpy, moody and/or prickly often follow to round out this unbalanced fellowship in my life.
But none of those are actually the purpose of uncertainty, as I have been learning lately.
“Uncertainty chases us out into the open where God’s always waiting for us.” – Bob Goff
As I was preparing for my week, Romans 5 came to mind. Verses 1-2 in particular captured my heart as God began to unfold them to me.
“By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.”Romans 5:1-2 MSG
In a nutshell? My faith in Him allows me to enter into His Presence to find He has ALWAYS been waiting there for me!
No matter what is going on and how impatient I become in those moments of uncertainty, He is the One in whom I can be certain, for He is constant and never changing.
“I love connecting patience and faith because when we put them together we will be able to persist in confident expectation.” – Graham Cooke
