Driving back home from a retreat earlier this year, I noticed a big white billboard with the words #OneStepCloser written on it in red. I have no idea what the advert was about but knew that it was God’s answer to my prayers. Something so simple which yet revealed so much about His plan for my life!
How could such a simple hashtag reveal so much? For many years, one of my constant prayers was to understand God’s plan for my life. Yet many situations I was going through looked nothing like God’s plan in my eyes! After years of uncertainty, I longed for the Lord to reveal his will I.
He often reminds me that his ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not like mine.
God always manages to amaze me! He often reminds me that his ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not like mine. Those words have shown me that all this is part of God’s plan – not the suffering, not all the confusion and doubts for their own sake, but that through them I am today one step closer to him, one step closer to becoming the person He created me to be and above all, one step closer to Heaven.
Today I know that His path is revealed one step at a time, with patience, obedience and perseverance. When I feel overwhelmed by all the uncertainties, I hold on to the promise that God
“… is before all and all things hold together in him.” Colossians 1: 17
May we draw every day, #OneStepCloser to fulfill God’s promise for our life, one which is filled in abundance.
