Sometimes I think we forget or temporarily misplace this simple truth – God is holy, and therefore the answer to all of our problems. There is nothing He does not know, there is nothing He cannot deal with, there is nothing that catches God by surprise. Never will there come a time when God says, “I did not see that coming.”
Just because we may not get the answer we want, or the answer to the problem is a long time in coming – does not and never will mean that God is not seated on the throne firmly in control of all things. We are human and therefore impatient – looking for the answer we need right now! God does not deal in right now, He deals in everything in it’s proper time. God is here and now, and He knows the past and the future, all things are in His purview.
If we but trusted completely in God, there would be nothing we could not handle – nothing. It is not that complete trust in God means we have no problems, that bad things will not happen to us, that loved ones will not die, or that we will always be happy. Complete trust in God means that we would be able to handle all that life could possibly throw at us – because God is IN us – that through the presence of Christ in us, all things are possible. We have only to look at the life of the Apostle Paul to see that this is true.
Be encouraged in the Lord your God today.
