1 Samuel 16 (NIV): The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.”
Letting go is difficult, no doubt. Even if you have declared by your word, "God, I trust you, I let go of everything.” Do you really mean it? For me, even though I have declared so, sometimes, deep down in my heart, I doubt it.
Recently, a song from Kingdomcity called, “Break My Heart Open” really resonates in my heart and the whole of me. Part of the song goes like this:
”Lord I break my heart open,
May you find my devotion,
Lord I bring You my worship,
I pour it at Your feet,
I pour it at Your feet.
I just wanna be fully given,
Wholly surrendered to You,
All of me with no reservation,
It is my joy to yield to You.”
The part where I worship Him and acknowledge that “It is my joy to yield to You” really touch my heart to its deepest core despite so many unsettled problems, but God understands us well and never overlooks us.
Maybe you are in a position like Samuel right now. Maybe you are in a doubt, and you are mourning for something you lost or something you struggle to let go of.
What if God has actually provided for you a solution?
He might not reveal what it is exactly, but He has guided you.
God didn’t tell Samuel exactly that he need to look for a boy named David. Instead, God told him to look for Jesse.
You might not see the whole thing, but God has ordered your step.
You are not overlooked. God won’t fail.
One day - one moment, you will get to see His glory!
Trust His guidance.
