Have you ever wanted something and had an idea of just what it would be like when you got it? For example you wanted a significant other that fit certain criteria, but then you met someone that was the exact opposite. Then when we meet this opposite, what do we do? We just settle for them and put all that criteria and the vision we had to the back burner. Do you know what this is called? It’s settling. As humans male and female, we settle so much. Not only in relationships, but in our careers, our education, even in our thought life. But why do we settle? Do we settle because we just want that one thing so bad that we take the closest thing to it that crosses our path? Or do we settle because we never even believed the thing we envisioned existed in the first place? I know for me sometimes I can become doubtful that the thing I envisioned will ever even cross my path. Then I had to remember that I serve a God that can do anything at all and that is very concerned about me. He knows everything that’s hidden in my heart and even the number of the strands of hair on my head. He makes the stars and the waves obey his command. If I know I serve a God that can do all this, why do I think he can’t send me something that is above or beyond whatever I even envisioned? Truth is fear makes us settle. Fear of the unknown can get you to settle where you are or just settle for something you never really wanted in the first place. When that fear creeps in I have to remind myself that God did not give me that feeling. And the next time you get ready to settle, you should remind yourself of the same thing. And before you take something that you really never wanted, remember that you don’t have to settle. If you just believe and wait, God Can send you something so great, you’ll think him everyday that you never settled.
