Every path The LORD has led you on has had a destination. You probably didn’t know about it until you got there.
The LORD’s intentions many times are kept from us so that we won’t lose heart about the calling He has for us..
We do tend to think just the opposite being true. We tend to think along the line of “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” (Proverbs 13:12).
But truly seeking Him with your whole heart is what really leads you into what He says about you:
“I will be found by you. when you seek Me and search for Me with your whole heart.” Jeremiah 29:12-13.
Being the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, (Hebrews 11:6), your life will be empowered with the knowledge, that, He has indwelled you for that very purpose.
He is causing you to humble yourself for the very purpose of lifting you up. He will lift you into His, purpose. (1 Kings 19).
“Call upon Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you do not know,” Jeremiah 33:3.
“For all things work together for good, for those who love God, for those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28, (1 Kings 19).
“Submit yourselves therefore to God, Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you….. Humble yourself in the sight of The LORD and He will lift you up.” James 4: 7-10.
“Humble yourself under God’s mighty Hand, that He may lift you up in due time.” 1 Peter 5:6.
“Your Word have I hid in my heart so that I will not sin against you…. I will not forget Your Word.”” Psalm 119:11-16.
