The paths the Lord leads us on and the processes the Lord brings us through are not efficient but they are effective. The reason for this is because the Lord prioritizes intimacy over effeciency. Our internal clocks/metronomes move at more beats per minute than the Lords clock/metronome for our life, henceforth why we get disappointed. We need to recalibrate our internal rhythm from efficiency to intimacy if we want to walk with God effectively. We do this by learning to lean on His nature not on circumstances, for His nature is faithfulness; abundance; mercy; generosity; good. As you walk with Jesus and other people value intimacy over efficiency for truly without love you can do nothing of lasting importance. It is out of intimacy that we can do things effortlessly.
“Do not let your hands fall limp. The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.”
