I Thessalonians 5:24 says, “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
I really need this reminder today.
My guy is a visionary. He gets an idea, knows a certain path and that’s it…he’s ready to take the plunge.
I, on the other hand, am a detail girl.
I love the big ideas, but my mind automatically goes to the how.
If we are my moving, I remember every detail that needs to happen to get us there.
If we are remodeling a space, even though I am not a construction person, I seem to be the one to remember to buy the nails.
If we are going on a mission trip, I think of every little detail…over and over again.
That’s what kept me from sleeping some last night…a mission trip we are going on this summer. Details, details, details. Even though details are good, they can also drive me insane.
During my mental list making in the night, the Holy Spirit reminded me of I Thessalonians 5:24. He reminded me that I am called to go and He will accomplish what is supposed to be accomplished. Yes, I need to remember to bring my toothpaste, but He will take care of the details of loving on the people, teaching what needs to be taught, the team’s health and so much more because “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
Rest in that this week. Write your lists and use the gift of details that God has given you, but then set the pen aside and trust Him to accomplish the call on your life. Depend on Him for every detail knowing that He is always faithful.
