Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. Unedited. The prompt this week is …Â Become.
In the midst of several conversations this week, the obvious was right in front of me – life has become a battle of sorts for people.
The battles and challenges may vary in size, in type, and intensity but the battle is there.
Looking up the definition of the word “become” one meaning took on a new light: “to be suitable or necessary to the dignity, situation, or responsibility of ” (dictionary.com).
God has been working in each of our lives to get us to this moment. We have been in the process of becoming all we needed to be in order to face the challenges of these days.
Little by little, He has been molding, strengthening, depositing into us and changing us to become suitable and responsible for the situations in our lives.
Each of our days builds upon the other so that step by step we become equipped for the next day. God has always been in the process of preparing us for the next challenge.
“Blessed be the Lord, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle; My lovingkindness and my fortress, My stronghold and my deliverer, My shield and He in whom I take refuge, Who subdues my people under me.” (Psalm 144:1-2, NASB)
As we submit our lives into His hands,
in His infinite wisdom,
we become all He destined for us to be.
