One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible is Jeremiah 29:11. To be able to rest in the knowledge that the Lord knows His plans for us is incomparable. It's that waiting-on-His-plans season that gets us...
I will never forget a situation in which the Lord gave me His love for an individual who needed rescuing. This person couldn't understand why I would pour out His love despite behavior that should have cancelled it. I remember saying more than once, "I see the butterfly."
He allowed me to see beyond the current state to try and see what He had designed. What He had planned. Not gonna lie, it blew my mind.
What if we learned how to set our minds on things above where Christ is seated at the right hand of the Father? What if we dared to live as we are - seated in heavenly places in Christ? What if we were to choose daily to look at the big picture and see the butterfly?
I challenge you today to not become discouraged in what seems to be the caterpillar stage of life that you may be experiencing. I urge you today to not become overwhelmed at the cocoon that your life may appear to be right now. I dare you to try and see the butterfly.
He knows the plans that He has for you...choose to trust Him.
Choose to worship while you wait for your wings.
Father, You know the end from the beginning. Your plans are to prosper, not to harm. Your plans are to give me a hope and a future. Please help me to see it before I see it. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
