“There are some things the Lord our God has kept secret. But there are some things He has let us know. These things belong to us and our children forever. It is so we will do everything in these teachings.” –Deuteronomy 29:29 (ICB)
Have you ever wondered why God allowed certain situations to happen? Or why it seems like He hasn’t answered our prayers yet? Or why He doesn’t show us what He is planning to do in our trials? God never shows us everything all at once. Instead, He reveals His will, piece by piece, in accordance to His perfect time. After all, we wouldn’t need Him anymore if we knew everything. We would not be seeking Him for direction in our lives if we knew everything. But God wants us…
To LET GO and allow Him to lead us because our lives are already secured in Him. God promised success when we commit our plans into His hands and submit into His guidance (see Proverbs 16:3).
To BELIEVE in His perfect time because He is never late nor early but He is always on time. Whatever God has begun in us, He will surely bring it into completion and He will be with us through it all (see Philippians 1:6).
To TRUST HIM because He sees the bigger picture and He holds our future (see Jeremiah 29:11). God sees the whole puzzle and He gives it to us piece by piece, in alignment to His perfect time, as we submit into His guidance.
We may not know what lies ahead and nothing is certain. But what we know for sure is that God is faithful to His promises and His favor is upon His children.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your unfailing love and Your never-changing faithfulness. Help us to depend on You alone and enable us to be discerning of Your voice. Guide us with Your Spirit and guard us with Your peace. We love You, Father. Be glorified in our lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
