Trust God in ALL things is easier said then done. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.” Proverbs 3:5-8
Oh man, I can’t tell you how many times I have heard Proverbs 3:5 before. TRUST God. Yeah, I do. Umm…do I really? Do YOU really? Through this amazing journey of spiritual growth over the years, I realize again, I haven’t fully trusted God. Not in EVERYTHING. In the past two months, I’ve been feeling God tug on my heart. The Holy Spirit convicting me again of my brokenness. I’ve prayed for any brokenness and gaps in my faith to be revealed. Be cautious what you pray for. Ha! Now in a season of greater trust, I knew it was time to start moving again. I hadn’t exercised since retreat. Through healing my adrenals, I knew my body couldn’t take much exercise. Walking would have been good, but winter made for an easy excuse. Three weeks ago, I said yes. I pushed play on RevWellTV. A warm-up and a cool down were a complete workout. On the second time of pushing play, I chose a mobility workout that I knew I desparetly needed and my body craved. Surely, I had done this workout last year. But God, He knew one of my favorite versus is Exodus 14:14, “The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Some translations say to be still. So, I chose the Exodus 14:14 Mobility workout.
I LOVE a good mobility workout! Simple. Holy, Whole body goodness. Appreciating every major muscle. Recognizing my strength and weakness. But God, He knew. Alisa Keeton, who leads that particular workout, pointed out what follows in Exodus 14:15. “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Why do you cry to me? Tell the people of Israel to go forward.'” Oh man! Yeah. This is where they are standing at the edge of the Red Sea and the verse right before Moses is instructed to lift his staff and God WILL part the Sea. So like Alisa shares, there is a time to be still and wait on the Lord. But God, He WILL direct you when it is time to MOVE! I feel that time is now, for me.
In full trust, I will not fear slowed healing of my body. I will listen to the Spirit. I will move. Will you join me?
