Isaiah 30:9-10 -- On Looking Forward to God's Will

"That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits."
Isaiah 30:9-10

Sometimes, no matter how much we say "thy will be done," we don't really like God's will in our lives. We want our lives to go smoothly, without a lot of complications and problems. We want our plans to work out and when our lives twist in a different direction, even for a short amount of time, then we question God's wisdom. :)

Even though we don't like to relate to this scripture, I think all of us are like this at times. We don't want revelation that messes up our lives. We want God's will, but only if it doesn't interfere too much with what we're doing right now. We don't want the Prophet to come out with something that will make us change our lifestyles. So, today, let’s try to remember… from the simplest things to the most complex, God is in control. Even when things are devastating to us personally, God is in charge, and He knows what He is doing. :) Things will still work out for the best... whatever the best is, according to God. And, since God's best is probably at least twenty million times better than whatever we think is best, it's probably something to look forward to. :)

It is hard to let go of our will in favor of God’s will, especially when we don’t always know what that will is, and we have to face the unknown. But if we can trust God, and know that no matter what happens, things will work out better with Him than without Him (which is absolutely, without a doubt, true)… then maybe we can let go of some of the things we want, and wait for the happy surprise of what God is planning for us.
