My mind wandered to Moses, after he killed the Egyptian, Moses fled to Midian in fear of his life. Moses thought he would be killed next. But God led Moses to Midian for a purpose. Moses had to go there to grow, learn, & become who God called him to be & then return to Egypt to lead his people to freedom.
So what if the situations & circumstances you’re facing now are your Midian---your preparation for things to come? Without facing them & without being in “your Midian” you wouldn’t get to the next thing God has for you; the growth & development wouldn’t occur. Also, the relationship with God & faith wouldn’t grow.
There are times when we want to pray these things away, but without them, we wouldn’t become who God is calling us to be. We would remain the same; likely with our faith remaining stagnant too. I’m thinking instead of praying the challenges away, to ask God to show us what we’re to learn in the meantime. There’s something in the midst of it for us.
Don’t underestimate your Midian.
Until next time.
