No matter what hour of the morning, noon or night...I always seem to call my friend when she’s sitting down to eat. Whether it is six in the morning,
or ten at night. One time it was midnight! My timing is completely off when it comes to calling this particular friend.
Today, on her way to the hospital for an operation the following morning, I called her. So, what do you think happened? She was in a diner taking a break from the four hour drive to the hospital (she lives in the middle of moose country wilderness!) and eating her lunch. Okay, so we laughed hysterically! My goodness, can I ever get it right? I even call her when she is sitting down to eat at a diner? It was just so funny.
It made me appreciate our relationship
and think of God, and His perfect will. And, His perfect timing which of course is just one of many attributes that our Sovereign God has.
His timing is NEVER off. I am sure He smiled and possibly laughed while I was calling my friend knowing full well that even on the road I was going to catch her eating! Lord, can you give me a hint when to call my friend in the future?
Lord is so wise. “…from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:10 NKJV
We begin to get the wisdom of the Lord as we get to know Him on a deeper level, and a deeper basis. Meditating on God’s word will provide insight into things we never knew we could accomplish or understand. But, while studying scripture and embracing His truth, all things open. We’ll emerge fully equipped to handle the world, and the evil in it. His words will fortify us as we grasp the full meaning of what our purpose is here on earth.
We are soldiers for Christ, each one of us with different gifts, different roles. Some are teachers, some are counselors, some are mentors, and some are one-on-one personalities. But, one thing is for certain, we are all soldiers in Christ. We are in training for the big day of eternity, where our true lives will begin. His promises are there for us should we
choose to accept them and embrace His ways.
He is a loving,kind and outstanding
God. A compassionate and forgiving God. An amazing God. He will never leave us, nor forsake us. Although many have turned their back on Him.
Some will never know Him. How that breaks my heart, I could only imagine what it does to His...
"For the Lord will not forsake His people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people.” 1 Samuel 12:22 NKJV
