Reading – Psalms 62-65
“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.”
Psalms 62:5 NLT
There’s a sign in front of a church on Federal Boulevard in Denver that says,
“You are God’s novel. Let Him write it.”
As a novelist, I can appreciate that.
When I write, I generally let my characters do what they want. That is, I try to be consistent with the characteristics I assigned to them.
Let me tell you, they don’t always do the best thing.
I know the overview of the story and how I intend the end to be, but the characters don’t know that so they act on what they know with their characteristics.
God knows the big story of each of our lives.
Yet He lets us make our own decisions and live out our own lives. More often than not, we’ll make our decision according to our own predispositions rather than God’s will.
We would do well to listen to Him as He shows us the way.
Do you have troubles figuring out what God wants us to do?
Is it difficult for you to do what God wants me to do?
