“For Thou, Lord, hast made me glad through Thy work: I will triumph in the works of Thy hands.” (Psalm 92:4)
God will slow things down to a crawl so He can start something big in your life. If you’re not satisfied where you are, you know He’s not done with you. If you have uncharted depths you feel haven’t seen the light of day, perhaps He’s doing something under which the psalmist would term as “Thy work”. And after God does it, you’ll be “glad”. Simple as that. But, for you to truly function as a sane–and also believing–Christian, with all your gifts and abilities intact, He’ll have to dig down deep in order to plant you. And so that you can bloom where you’re planted. This is the plan. This is the structure.
The source of my power
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom: teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” (Colossians 3:17)
Take any song that gives you good feelings. Anything at all from your “A-list playlist” as I would term it. Did you know there’s someone out there, some musician, even the one who penned it, who doesn’t see it as do you? I know of bands and artists who loathe their early stuff. The set that’s played every night in a different city. That song you love? They hate it. But they can also explain it away from the ground up. I hope I’m not killing anything around the music you know and love but it’s the way it is. Music is one of the most polarizing and subjective things on God’s green earth. But it’s all channeled through the same bars and notes and structure. This, too, is order.
The point I’m getting at here is that of letting God give you that niche, that corner, that ministry that’s yours alone. The source of your power is Him but it will operate like an effortless cloud when you dwell within the framework God erects around you.
