The Whole Staircase

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV)

Someone once said that if God showed us every detail of our lives - all at one time - we would sit down and refuse to face another day.

Isn’t that true?? We wouldn’t be able to handle it if we knew what all our future held. It might be too scary, too overwhelming, or on the flip side too comfortable…allowing us to become too dependent on ourselves.

But because He is a loving God, He gives us only what we need to know today. He reveals His plan to us one day at a time. Even though to us that seems more overwhelming because we want to know what the whole plan is and what our entire future looks like.

He doesn’t show us everything though because we must depend on Him. We must have faith that He knows our future and that’s all that matters.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

TRUST Him and He will show you His will for your life. He has a plan for you...every day, every hour, every minute of your day. Seek Him and follow His plan!

  1. Awesome post. I love it! How true to realize that if we did see all our life holds ahead we would be completely overwhelmed. I love that I can trust Him to lay out His plans in His time - in a pace that I, as a mere human being, and as His beloved daughter, can handle. Happy New Year! I can't wait to see what this year holds for the two of you.
