As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth. It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. – Isaiah 55:10-11 NIV
God’s plans pan out. When He says something–commands it–it happens.
Our thoughts and plans don’t always match God’s purpose for us, and if we trust Him, He will redirect us back so that we align with the divine purpose He has for us.
The process of relinquishing control of our plans to God is sometimes frustrating. His timing is not our timing. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. He can make decisions clearly and confidently. We can trust Him to lead us. Amen.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. – Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
When we pray believing, we can have the assurance that God will take care of those we pray for.
A friend of mine has COVID-19. His age and health condition puts him at greater risk. I can tell he is not feeling well. He is a child of God, and I know God is taking care of him.
I don’t always understand God’s divine timing. Why do good people get sick?
When fear creeps into our hearts, we must remember who God is. He has a reason for everything. It’s sometimes hard for us to see why good people have to suffer, but God is in control and has power to cure any illness. Jesus spent many days healing people. Some day when we join Him in Heaven, we will understand God’s master plan. Amen
For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does. – Psalm 33:4 NIV
Our Lord keeps His word. He doesn’t break His promises to us. We can count on Him to not change His mind about us. We are His chosen people, and He wants the best for us.
It’s sometimes hard to have patience when we ask for something and God makes us wait. Sometimes the answer is “no” and sometimes the answer is “not yet”. We need to practice patience in order to accept that God will bring things to pass in His time, not ours. Yes, He intends to bless us and take care of us, but sometimes we need to realize that He has His own ways of getting tasks done.
We need to step back from our “to do” lists and watch His wonderful handiwork. He can do things better than we can. Amen.
