Like Jacob, I am wrestling with God over a few things right now. Changes. Promises. Blessing. Expectations ~ mine, His.
He took me through a passage this morning that I struggle with.
none of them received all that God had promised. For God had far better things in mind for us that would also benefit them, for they can't receive the prize at the end of the race until we finish the race.
I'll be honest. I don't get that. Why would He promise if He had better things in mind? Why make someone believe if He had no intention to make good on the promise? Especially when He knows from the beginning what He will do and what will happen. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a promise anyway? What is He trying to tell me?
Today, I choose joy in the mind God gave me to search His Word for truth.
Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...
