Trust

straighten my household…

The study with sisters has me considering… Do I trust Him at home…? does He care about my everyday cleaning and chores…? finances and taxes…?

I trust Him when it comes to a clear call of ministry… I have to… because I can’t teach Bible… or pray for a pastor… or write a word about His Word without Him…

But I feel overwhelmed at home lately… heart stirred… revealing a lack of trust… so I ask Him… Are You in the every day cleaning and chores…? the ins and outs of running a household…?

I think about Martha… He told her she was distracted… focused on all the wrong things…

Then there was Simon… who He told to go fishing… to retrieve the taxes they owed from the mouth of a fish…

And on the shore… before His ascension… one of the final times with His disciples… He cooked them breakfast… and served it up…

I realize He cares about the day to day…  even about poor Martha… the point was… she let housework distract her from Him…

His Word says trust Him… and He will make your paths straight…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NASB

So I wonder… if I acknowledge Him… trust Him… recognize His authority and sovereignty in my day to day chores… will He straighten my house too…?

I believe He just might… so I’ll lay down my distraction… acknowledge Him not only in ministry… but also in ordering my household… trusting Him to show me the way…

What do you need Him to straighten for you…?

You just might figure out where you need to acknowledge Him by checking your heart… Where is it all stirred up…?
