for the ones who Don't know...
A lot of times we get stuck in the rut of "I've got to figure this out," or, "I really don't know my specific purpose for my life yet." And believe me...I know what that feels like.
Currently, I'm still undecided as to what I want to do after I graduate high school. I have had a handful of ideas, but I'm not sure of any of them. I just plain don't know. And that's where these Verses come to play as a comfort in the season of my life I'm in right now: "As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect." -Psalm 18:30-32.
It gives me comfort knowing that God's way is PERFECT. And not only is He making my way perfect right now, but He's going to make my way perfect.
Definition of Perfect: [adjective, noun pur-fikt; verb per-fekt] - excellent or complete beyond practical or theoretical improvement ; exactly fitting the need in a certain situation or for a certain purpose ; entirely without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings ; accurate, exact, or correct in every detail.
EXCELLENT. FITTING FOR A PURPOSE. WITHOUT FLAWS. EXACT IN EVERY DETAIL.
You see, God is my buckler, because I trust in Him. If you don't know the definition of buckler...it means a shield, a support, a defense. And I know without a shadow of doubt that my Buckler, He's going to reveal to me and make my future PERFECT, if I just continue to put my faith and trust in Him.
Whether it be that special someone you really want in your life, or your career choices...waiting isn't terrible when you know that the outcome is going to be beautiful with God. We just have to be patient and pray and then trust that God's got this!
While we're waiting on Him to reveal that to us, our purpose is to share Him with others! Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." REMEMBER THAT THIS IS YOUR MAIN PURPOSE IN LIFE. Share Jesus everywhere you go!
For those of you you who don't know...know this, you're chosen. You're God's masterpiece that He is painting ever so perfectly. Just keep trusting in Him, share Him with others, and know that everything's going to be okay. It's okay to not have everything figured out yet, just take a deep breath and talk to God. He knows best. He holds this whole universe in His hands...I think He's got this. :)
