The Lord spoke to Moses at a critical and transitional point in his leadership journey. As Moses was complaining to Him, the Lord said, “That’s enough. Speak of it no more” (Deuteronomy 3:26-17). It was no longer about Moses’ disdain for the forever complaining Israelites who were as hard to lead as trying to herd cats. It was no longer about the legacy Moses thought he would leave behind. It was about the ability of Moses to trust God in silence. 

At the most critical points in our lives where we may not understand all that is happening or why the Lord has made certain choices about our lives, it is at that point, we need to trust God.  

In these cases, the evidence of our trust is evidenced by our silent obedience to God in the middle of the turmoil, confusion, and disappointment we are experiencing. Silence regarding the fulfillment of our perceived destiny, the record of the history we will leave behind, or what other people think about us will bring us to a place of surrender. It is our choice to make. Our surrender will release the kind of peace that only comes when we are willing to speak no more of the things we will never understand until God’s will is fully revealed.

    Silence and surrender – such powerful words!

    “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
    ‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭13‬:‭12‬-‭13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    Yes, to trust Him when I can’t understand is laying my life at His feet. Paul wrote “i die daily…” surrender every day!
    Herding cats?! …love it!
    only God could get cats to herd up

    Just what I needed for a time of unexpected transition, for not only me, but for a dear friend as well who is going through a tough time. Although we became unwilling participants in what appeared to be man’s doing, to make the choice to be the willing participants in God’s big picture-plan, as He moves in His ways, methods and timing, we can have peace in the wait.

    Thank you for the confirmation.
