It seems so simple, yet as you attempt to walk it out my will seems to become complicated with unforeseen details. While the concept often seems simple, following it does not always seem so simple. But let me assure you, I have allotted for all these things. I have allotted for your confusion, for your errors in judgment, for your mistakes, and for your reluctance. I have taken account for all for all of these things, and they are small to me. (1)
Do not look to your own understanding in this present day, but understand I am working a greater purpose, a greater glory yet to be fully revealed. And with this perspective you will know what I am saying and giving to you is not so narrow. What I am saying to you has an initial, surface level meaning and understanding, but I am also working things much deeper, much more profound, things beyond what your eyes can see. (2)
Trust my guidance, for the short term actions will look a certain way, but the long term results will look very different. Do not wrestle against me, for you are not always able to see past the here and now, let alone understand it and appreciate it all fully. Rest in the assurance of my plans for you, my purpose for you, and my timing in which all these things will be taken care of.
While there will still be unanswered questions, and details you would like to understand, know I have allotted for all these things and I am working all things out for your ultimate good, in spite of your lack of knowledge. Rest, trust, and enjoy. Enjoy the process day by day, even minute by minute. Rest in my plans and the assurance of who I am, but enjoy me in all these things, for we have been united in perfect union together, and nothing will ever separate you from my great love – not even your own confusion, misunderstanding, or reluctance.

Walk the walk of faith, looking past what your eyes can see as you gaze into the eternal, what your eyes cannot see. As you do you will engage with me in wondrous and glorious ways, and will enjoy the full freedom and expression placed within your heart.
