It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.
When was the last test you faced? A test that dropped you to your knees. A test that caused tears to run down your face. A test that forced you to do a self-evaluation. When was the last time you experienced a divine encounter with the Lord? The time when danger surrounded you and the Lord intervened just in time. The time when it appeared impossible but the Lord made a way for you. When was the last time you walked the floors worrying about bill payments, marital problems or ministerial decisions? The time when worry robbed you of your sleep, but the Lord reminded you again that He was a faithful God. The time when divorce consumed your thoughts but God stepped in and changed your heart and thoughts. The time when you felt like walking away from ministry but the Lord reminded you that He was the one who called you. Do you recall these experiences?
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Do you ever think back over your life? The trials and tribulations God brought you through. The unwise and unprayerful decisions God protected you from. The traps and snares God exposed for you. Isn’t it amazing how the Lord continues to watch your back when friends promise they will? Isn’t it amazing how we continue to doubt God’s work in our lives because it feels uncomfortable? My friend, God Knows What He Is Doing! There are no mistakes in the Lord. Your life was planned and purposed before your parents knew each other. The Bible declares in Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. God has walked out each of your steps. Even when you made wrong turns, God used them for the good (Romans 8:28). God Knows What He Is Doing! He is aware of all the unbelievers surrounding you. He knows many do not believe it can be done. Do you?
My brother, my sister, do you still believe God knows what He is doing in your life? Do you still trust Him with your life? The Bible declares in Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. God Knows What He Is Doing!
He has not lost control of the plans He created for your life. Beloved, it is time for you to fully stand on the Lord’s Word. Wavering back and forth makes you indecisive (James 1:6). Delayed obedience still makes you disobedient (Isaiah 1:19). When was the last time you said, “Yes Lord I will!” The last time you committed your will to His Will. God Knows What He Is Doing! Your current pain, burdens, turmoil or fears are not hidden from the Lord. He knows what He is doing in you, so allow Him the chance to bring it to pass.
Prayer for Today: Father, I know You know what is best for me and my life. Forgive me when I doubted. Have Your own way, I know You know what You are doing. In Jesus’ name … Amen!
Scripture Reading for Today: Psalms 118:8
