Recently, when we were in Australia, our family stayed in this very nice hotel. They even upgraded us to a suite!
Now, when you get upgraded to a suite, it’s supposed to be SWEET. But somehow, I didn’t think it was what I wanted.
I REALLY wanted to stay at a different hotel that we couldn’t get into. I walked over to the other hotel, asked for a tour, and they showed me one of their upgraded rooms.
Sure, it was newer and more modern. But, it wasn’t nearly as BIG and wouldn’t have worked for our family.
For DAYS, I’d been feeling dissatisfied, thinking, “THIS is not what I want.” But, when I finally saw what I THOUGHT I wanted… I realized, that I HAD what I really needed, all along!
Most of the time, we don’t even know what’s best for us. We’re placed over here but we THINK we want to be over there. And we don’t understand why!
Be careful what you wish for. You might get what you want…but you might not want what you get! God is in Heaven saying, “Baby! I know what you want more than YOU know what you want. I wish you’d just trust Me with this.”
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And My ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.”
Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)
He’s the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the BEGINNING and the END! If we submit ourselves under the mighty Hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us and lift us up!
So, I’ll ask YOU. Do you know what you REALLY want?
Are you open to letting God direct it?
