TOPIC: You Don’t Have to Know
The LORD will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. (Psalm 138:8, NLT)
MESSAGE: When Moses led the two million Israelites out of slavery into the desert and toward the Promised Land, I can imagine them asking him, “What route are we going to take? Where are we going to get food and water? How will we protect ourselves?” Moses answered, “I don’t know.” Just because you don’t know how something is going to work out doesn’t mean God doesn’t have a plan. Moses had such a trust in God that he was comfortable not knowing. He took it one step of faith at a time.
When we’re trying to figure everything out and manipulate a solution, we’re being God. It’s very freeing when you learn this principle that it’s okay to say as Moses did, “I don’t know how it’s going to work out, but I’m at peace.” You’re taking yourself off the throne and putting God on the throne. Take the pressure off. You don’t have to know; God knows. He will work out His plan and get you to where you’re supposed to be.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
