Why You Don’t Have to Figure it Out


Over the years, it’s inevitable that we learn. We grow and change and figure things out. We understand what’s good for us and what’s not, what’s healthy and uplifting and what’s unhealthy and harsh.

And in the back of our minds, we begin to believe that one day we’ll have it all figured out. So we strive for that day, hoping that eventually no more mistakes will be made.

But here’s the truth: we’re never going to have it all figured out. Never. Life is one long season of learning, and we will continue to learn lessons each and every day. And while this may be discouraging to hear, it’s actually a blessing in disguise. Why?

Exodus 14:14 says, “The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” In other words, God doesn’t want us to have it all figured out. He doesn’t want us to have it all together. Instead, He wants us to be able to rely on Him and His perfect grace.

So don’t worry about figuring it all out. Simply lean into God and know that He will continue to fight for you.
