God Always Provides…

18 Nov

Though the response may not be what I want, and the timing much slower than what I would prefer, God is always faithful to provide exactly what I need at the perfect moment. The important thing for me to remember is that I don’t always understand, nor do I always know what is best for me. Although I try hard to think outside of the moment, I usually only see a very narrow view of my situation and struggle to see how each moment lends structure to the Big Picture that God has planned.

When I look back at all of the “Big Deals” that have occurred in my life, I can see where God provided every time. Not only did he provide what I needed at the perfect moment, the outcome was always better than it would have been if I would have got my way.

It is often quite challenging to figure out what God’s will is for my life. When I find myself at a crossroad, how do I know which path to take? I believe that scripture gives me a fairly clear path of how to love and what to avoid. For those times that I don’t see a clear answer, I just pray that God would use me for his Glory and guide my path. Sometimes I hit the mark, and other times I am way off target. Those are the times when, if I am paying attention, God allows me to learn and often provides moments of discipline. Generally speaking, when I am focused on God and doing what I know to be right and good, things turn out quite beautifully. If I find myself wallowing and suffering, chances are I have taken my eyes off of God and am attempting to control the universe.

God will provide me with absolutely everything I need in order to carry out his plan for my life. That is a comforting thought that really enables me to relax. With that thought in mind, I don’t feel like I have to be in control.

God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!
