God’s ways are higher than our ways. His understanding is far above ours.
He can give you a new opportunity, and we may shy away from it, simply because, “it looks different from what we are used to.”
We may even say, “I’m not so sure that it’s from The LORD.”
It could be a new way that He is providing for you; it may look different from what you have been used to in the past, but He may be developing in you a new mindset about His working in your life.
We have at home six ducks and one goose. We feed them separately, although they end up all together when we put them in the paddock for the night.
We use a large plastic plate for the ducks who are led into the paddock with the plate of veggies, and a paper plate for the goose to eat from, before he is encouraged into the paddock.
We apparently ran out of paper plates, so we had to use a regular supper plate for him to eat from. After my wife set the plate down for him, he acted very hesitant, and mistrusting of his food.
Of course it looked strange to us about how he was acting. He had never had such a reaction before.
But we finally figured out why he was doing this. He was actually afraid of the plate. The plate was yellow. The paper plates we used were white.
These birds are very structure oriented. They have a hard time adjusting to something new. So we dumped his food on the ground and he ate it.
The LORD wants to expand your imagination about His Ways of doing things in your life. We may think that everything has to be according our ways of structure in life.
But He wants to expand your borders, enlarge your boundaries, take you to new territory in your walk with The LORD.
Jesus said, “Everything that the Father has is Mine; and the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name, He will guide you into all truth; He will take from what is Mine and show it unto you.”
There is a new way for you that He is showing concerning the destiny God wants to accomplish in your life.
He does not give you the spirit of fear, but the Spirit of Power, of Love and of a Sound Mind.
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for; it is the evidence of things not seen. He will be opening your understanding so that you will comprehend; that this new thing will be what is good, and not to fear.
Trust Him now, for He is faithful Who promised, and He will do it.
