I think we worry the most when we don’t stay in our own lanes. When we want to do what only God can do. We want to – often – fail to do our part but still tell God how to do his part.
The horse is made ready for the day of battle… v 31
This is our part. We plan. We prepare. We make ready.
…but the victory belongs to the Lord.
Victory. That’s God’s part.
👉 Obedience is on us. Outcome is on him.
That is liberating, friends! God doesn’t ask us to solve all the problems, fix all the things, keep the sky from falling. He asks us to trust and obey.
Trust and obey
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey
When we obey – we will be blessed.
Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness… v 21
This is our part. To pursue righteousness and kindness.
…will find righteousness, life, and honor.
That’s his part.
👉 And, did you notice, he provides even more than we were pursuing? That’s just his way.
You are more loved than your mind can fathom.
