Romantic Notions (Part 4) – Belief in God Trumps Romantic Notions

4 But I said, “I have labored to no purpose; I have spent my strength in vain and for nothing. Yet what is due me is in the Lord’s hand, and my reward is with my God.” -Isaiah 49:4

This scripture set me free when I was 18 years old and tried quitting my internship at my church. I was at the peak of disappointment. My romantic notions of what ministry was to be like were shattered. I felt like everything I did had no purpose, I felt like I was spending my strength in vain and for nothing. Then I read it, “Yet what is due to me is in the Lord’s hand, and my reward is with my God.”

All you need to trump romantic notions in your  life is to believe that God is an amazing God who loves you more than you could ever imagine and wants the best for you. Believe that He knows what He is doing, that He’s preparing you for great things, and that His will for your life will come to pass, and that it will be better than anything you ever dreamed of. Read Hebrews 11:6!

When you really trust God for your future, your promotion, your hopes and dreams, nothing will move you.

You don’t need to look to anyone or anything for your reward, security, or any other need you have in your life. It’s in God’s hands, it’s in God’s time. Trust Him! Trust Him for all of your dreams and expectations for life! He knows the desires of your heart! The Bible says Cast all your Cares on Him, for He cares for you.

God is bigger than you could ever imagine. He loves you more than you could ever imagine. It’s time we set all of our hopes, dreams, and romantic notions at His feet, and allow Him to move in our lives. Allow Him to bring things to pass in your lives and to take care of you. To be honest, that’s really the answer to all of our questions, problems, and needs in life.

Are you really trusting God? With your entire life?

I hope this series on Romantic notions helped you.

Here are some scriptures that have helped me in this area:

9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. -Galatians 6:9

6 And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. -Philippians 1:6
