Tonight in my quiet time, I came across this very in Exodus. Instantly I stopped and read it again. While the content is talking about Moses, Pharaoh and the Israelites, I very much believe that this verse applies to our every day life.
I know in my day to day life, I get anxious, upset, and frustrated over really little things--sometimes big things to me. This verse just simply says to stay calm and know that the Lord will take care of every situation. I find myself sometimes thinking I can handle things on my own, and if God would just let me have the outcome be what I would like, that everything will work out in the end. It is almost inevitable that I stop in my tracks and realize what is happening and what I'm doing. I know that God has everything worked out already, but the control freak that I am wants to do things my way. This year, in school especially, I have learned that my way is NOT the way. I am much more relaxed and I know it is because I gave every part of this year to God.
This year started out differently than last year. I pulled up into SNU the first day and prayed in my car. I let everything that I knew would worry me, everything and everyone that I knew would frustrate me, not getting the grades I wanted, professors and their opinions, and everything else involving the school year.... go into God's hands. Now, that's not to say that everything is fine and dandy and I don't have a care in the world about school anymore, but I do have so much peace about this year. I know that whatever happens, will be what is in God's will and plan for my life. I still struggle with giving even the simplest things to God in my daily walk... so everything isn't perfect, but I know the divine peace about letting God have things in my life.
