Trusting God - Thursday, March 17th 2016

John 6:6

But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.

Praise the Lord that we don't know everything that is going to happen because that keeps life fragrant. Uncertainty can also be frustrating, because we want to know everything but we can't. There are things we go through that surprise us and catch us off guard. There is, however, nothing in your life that catches God off guard or surprises Him. The things you are dealing with right now, at this moment, God knew before we even came on the scene. That's pretty mind blowing, but here is the kicker... He also knows how you are going to get out of your tough situations. He saw the curve coming long before you did and He prepared you for what He already saw coming. He knows what fruit this trial is going to produce in your life. For your benefit, He allows this trial or that test to proceed. But, take heart saints and be strong. While we may wonder how it works out and what happens next, we can trust in our God because He knows all along what He is going to do.

Life Lesson: We don't know everything, but God does.

Dear God,
Thank You for Your provision of growth in my life. You love me so much that You do not want me to remain who I am but to grow in Your good gifts. What an incredible comfort it is to know that my Father in Heaven knows who I am and who I will be and will see me through the changes. Thank You. I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
