Abraham and Sarah fell into this trap. God promised them son, and when it didn’t happen, Sarah offered her handmaiden to Abraham. He had a child with her, but it was not God’s plan—not the child God promised.
The plain fact is, God doesn’t need our help. We must let His will come to pass, not try to make His will come to pass. When we try to make it happen it brings disillusionment. We think, “God really messed this up!”
Don’t try to make God’s will come to pass. His promise will come at the appointed time.
God is not a formulaic God. Don’t force it. Don’t help it along. Don’t overreach. When God is in it, there is peace that surrounds the process.
1 Corinthians 14:33 says, “God is NOT the author of confusion, but of peace!” If there is chronic confusion, you have to ask if you are leading or being led!
We are his servants, sent to His will. We must follow Him.
