Hello! 2016 February: Uncertainty is an Asset.

Toward the latter half of last year, God began to quicken in my heart the power and potency of the word, “Uncertainty.” Wow! What a word? Did you realize the only certainty in life is God and the things He has chosen to define boundaries? Most of the other things are truly uncertain, especially the tiny little details. Typically there is a level of certainty in the big picture. The uncertainty is in the little tiny details, which create the big picture.

How certain did you suppose Abraham was when God promised him a city? His belief in God's certainty created a picture of a city with foundations, a city laid out and built by God. How did that match the reality of his experience? Was he disappointed? Oh, No! Sure, No! His faith was not in the city. His faith was in God.

How certain did you suppose Joseph was when he dreamt of being a ruler? How was he able to keep and maintain his dream through all the disappointments? His faith was not in the small, tiny little events along the way. His faith was in the final story. His faith was in the God who guarantees the final story. It did not matter the detours, the word over him had all the power to bring his dream to fruition.

What of Mary, the mother of Jesus? Did she understand the fullness of what she was exposing herself to? Did she understand the fullness of what Joseph’s response will be or that of everyone else? The simple answer is, No! Rather than allow herself to be distracted by the tiny little details, she focused on the only thing that matters. She focused on that which was certain. She focused on the one who can make ALL things right.

This happens to be a transition month for my family. We enter into a new phase of our life we have not lived before. You know we could choose to be carried away by all the funny little questions. Those will be a mere waste of our time. We choose to trust in the only thing that matters. And, that is our transition for bigger and greater things. Why? We have a God who is certain. We have a God who is over every tiny detail of our lives. And, He is making it all right.

I don’t know what you are going through at this point in your life. I trust the best for you. Place your focus where it matters. Place your focus on God. Place your goals, dreams, and vision before you. Be brutally honest with your reality, but don’t be a slave to it. See the bigger picture. Throw all the colors you can summon on the canvas of your future. There is no limit to the beauty it can become. Make it that which you want. Make it that which excites you.

Your future is great. Your future is awesome. What the future has in stock for you by far eclipse your present reality. Your future is possible. You are possible. Go forth and take hold of it.
