It’s all about perspective. Walking by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7) can either be perceived and received with great anxiety OR great anticipation.
We often fear walking by faith in God because the prerequisite is trust in what we cannot see. It defies our logic and the innate need to KNOW what’s next. But we really just need to be certain of one thing, He got it ALL in His infinite wisdom and Sovereignty. He will order our steps according to His word and promises as long as we stay close to listen and follow His lead.
I consider my daughter anticipating a surprise I have for her. Because she KNOWS she is mine and I love her and I enjoy giving her the best, she has great anticipation for what she hasn’t yet seen. She has peace and trusts me because I’m mommy. In that same manner, I have great anticipation for what is ahead because I know my Daddy withholds no good thing from me (Psalm 84:11) and loves to bless me in ways I can’t even imagine because I am His and He loved me enough to give His life for Me… and YOU!
Excited for what’s ahead.
