(Proverbs 4:25, MSG)
Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions. Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
When you isolate a negative experience and focus on it, it may not make sense. It’s like when you have a piece to a jigsaw puzzle that doesn’t look like it fits anywhere. You’re sure the manufacturer made a mistake. It’s an odd shape, not the right color, too blurry. It looks random, like it’s unnecessary. But when the other pieces come together, it makes sense. There will be a perfect fit where the colors match and the edges line up. Without it, the puzzle wouldn’t be complete.
You may have a piece to your life puzzle that doesn’t make sense. You could think, “GOD didn’t ordain this setback or loss. This piece doesn’t fit.” But GOD isn’t finished. Nothing is random. That piece is instrumental in getting you to your destiny. If you stay in faith, all the pieces will come together for your good–not just the good breaks and increases, but even the losses and disappointments. It will be a perfect fit when GOD brings it all together.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
FATHER,FATHER, thank YOU that my life is in YOUR hands, and YOUR plans for me are good. Thank YOU that the pieces of my life puzzle that I don’t understand now are going to come together and be a perfect fit. I believe that YOU will get me to where I’m supposed to be. In JESUS’ Name, Amen.
