Wanting to Be Farther Along

Have you ever wanted to be farther along than where God has you? I have. I have wanted this more than I have ever wanted to be right where God has me. Leave it to me to think I know where I belong rather than to trust God that He always knows best. How often I have run ahead of God like a little girl skipping into the future – only to come running back to my Daddy in heaven to say, “Ouch. This hurts. I’ve scraped my knees. I’ve bruised my face. I’ve fallen once again.” Does a good father send his child off on an adult bicycle before she learns to ride her child’s tricycle? Does a good father send her off on her very first bicycle with training wheels without teaching her to ride, and without holding her hand as she learns to use this gift he has given her? The Lord knows where I belong, and He knows when I am ready to move into the next place He has planned for me. He knows when I am ready, and He knows when I am not. He knows how to prepare and train me, and He knows how to tell me when it’s time to move forward. He merely asks that I trust and obey Him as He trains me up from being his baby daughter to being a mature woman in Christ.

Pro 22:6  “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

I have always heard of this scripture in reference to human parents raising human children. But now I realize it is just as much, if not more, about my Father in heaven raising me…………
