ants are creatures with little strength, but they prepare their food in the summer;
Proverbs 30:25 NET
Sometimes the spiritual life doesn’t seem so spiritual. Christians tend to think of God and Jesus and the Bible and it seems sometimes like it can be stuff in another dimension.
The disconnect for many people is that we live right here in the now! “Yeah, God is good for Heaven, but what about my well-being right here?”
Where is the line where God is active in our lives and we take over and drive?
Here is the thing, there is no line. He carries you through all of it, you need to trust Him.
The ants are a force to be reckoned with. You can disrupt their mound and they pick up and make a bigger mound a few feet away! They work relentlessly.
Some even value the ants determination to work together, to build mounds, to store food, to attack those that would try to harm their community.
But in all of that, it is important to remember that God created them to be able to work like that! They were created to carry more than their weight, store food, build great and deep mounds and have a bite that you won’t forget.
He has done the same for you! He has created you. He has put specific attributes in you to make you, you!
Walk in them! Walk in what He has prepared you for!
There is a reason God has put inside of you ideas, dreams and godly desires. Trust Him through the power of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of His Word to lead you to the plan He has for you!
When you find your place in Him, when you submit to His will and not yours, you will experience His great love and peace, more than you could possibly realize!
Father, thank You for making me the way You have. Help me to walk according to Your plan and not mine. Let me experience all you have for me , right here, right now.
