This past week I delivered the sermon at the Kaw Valley Association Annual Meeting. I had worked on the message for days believing I was ready. As I spoke on Acts 1:8 emphasizing that each of us have a mission field, every believer a missionary to their Jerusalem. I continued to share, but at some point I came to a realization God was taking me in a different direction as I spoke. Acts 1:8 was still the focus, but my notes were no longer needed. He had a message to share and I was the vessel that would be used to proclaim His message. For a brief moment a sense of uneasiness came over me. Even as I drove home I expressed to God, “I hope I did what You wanted me to do.” Trusting God was all that I could do.
Every time I speak I trust God to lead me. Though the trust doesn’t stop when the final word is expressed. My trust continues on, trusting God with the results. This isn’t always easy to do, but God has never let me down. When we place our trust in the One who always provides the best we will never be disappointed.
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 straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
