“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength”
We love rabbit trails! Rabbit Trials? Think about when you see a rabbit and then the rabbit see you. The rabbit darts into the flower bed, the bushes, or the woods. Does the rabbit truly know where he/she is going, does he/she have a plan, or is he/she only worrying about escaping the possible danger you might cause them.
We as believers sometimes act like rabbits because we have a conflict with someone, job loss, unexpected news, or even get disappointed about a decision that was made out of control. We quickly react without a plan and start panicking to escape the situation.
Most of the time we are confused by the rabbits reaction because we were only trying to take a picture, trying pet it, or even trying to let our little ones to have a chance to see the rabbit. But not all rabbits act like this because a lot people have rabbits as pets. They hold the rabbit, they feed the rabbit, and sometimes even let the rabbit hop around the house.
There is a difference in a wild rabbit and a pet rabbit. There circumstances are completely different. You see when our eyes are fixed on Jesus, not money, work, fame, trying control others and different circumstances we see things completely different. We know there is a plan in place for us but we have to remember not to immediately run. We have to know Jesus is going to comfort us, feed us, and allow us to walk on His path.
Are you willing to walk His path? It might not look like anything you planned but how do you know that along the way, it just might look the way you thought if you gave Him time. God has all the power in the universe and a lot times we don’t allow the impossible things to happen in our lives because we take control of the reigns.
My encouragement today for you is rest assured that life on earth is difficult because we are surrounded by many distractions but if you will be still, be patient, and trust Him; He will guide you down paths and journeys you could never imagine!
