It’s easy to quit seeking God and living in obedience to Him when we don’t see the results WE expect. We want instant results and–we want the kind of results that WE envision. However, God doesn’t ask us to give our time, talent and resources so we can see results; He wants us to do it because we love and trust Him. God said, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11-13‬) God has a plan for our future welfare and hope. We do not possess even one fraction of one percent of God’s wisdom or power, so why do we think we know His timing or intended results? We don’t have to worry about the results. We simply love, trust and obey Him.

God does miracles with our loving obedience. We remain faithful because we love Him so much that we’d never dream of trusting anyone else above Him. We keep running the race even though we can’t see the prize because our greatest Prize is running the race with us! He is God. He gives us our next breath. We have simple instructions–love Him and love others. Just because we can’t comprehend God’s way of goodness doesn’t mean we should abandon loving obedience to Him in favor of pursuing the shallow pursuits of money, possessions and position.

God has a plan for us to experience the immense peace from living close to Him. His prosperity comes to our heart when we learn to give ourselves in love. As we think about the day ahead, we need to remember that the good we give out of our love for God gives us blessings more precious than anything we obtain without Him. Our loving Father has unimaginable and eternal blessings to share with us!
