God is Working in the Process

Process is defined as:

“A systematic series of actions directed to some end, a continuous action, operation, or series of changes taking place in a definite manner, the action of going forward or on, the condition of being carried on.”

Notice that a theme for the word “Process” is an action and a continuous action at that. In life, we may get tempted to have things our way and right away, but very seldom does that happen.  More often than not, we must go through a process, and sometimes that process is very lengthy and discouraging.  I firmly believe that a process is God’s way to prepare us for what He has for us whether it be a blessing, breakthrough, or an assignment.  Anything given too soon will not be a blessing but a curse. God is all knowing and all seeing therefor He sees the end from the beginning, and He can choose to hold us up for a moment while He goes before us and makes a crooked way straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 says

“5 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6 In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.”

Look at verse 5 in Amplified translation it says to ‘Lean On’ some have said lean into God.  “Lean” is a verb, and verbs mean action.  When it comes to trusting God and Leaning into Him, it is something we are intentionally doing. God knows every hair on our head so why in the world would we doubt that He has us under His care?  Also “be confident” again is a verb.  It is something we intentionally do.

On the other hand, “confident” is an adjective meaning, “having strong belief or full assurance; sure: bold.”

To sum up Proverbs3:5-6 we can say that leaning on and into God takes an intentional action. To be confident is to be sure of oneself and to be bold, and not only bold but excessively bold. May we all get the revelation on who God is and who we are in Him and who we are to Him, committing ALL our heart and all our mind to trust Him. I am fond of the saying “God is good and all the time God is good”. At times we may not understand the process that He has us in or the season we are in but we must trust that it is a process and one that He is faithful to complete.  A delay is not a denial!!! Your time will come just praise Him in the process because you are being refined in the fire and you will come out like pure gold.
