When I think of the wasted hours spent deliberating and calculating, reasoning and second-guessing how God is going to do what He said He would do; it is of great grief. When everything has been said and done, what was it for? It was all for nothing! When God is going to something, He doesn’t need our advice or counsel; He doesn’t come knocking at our door for a plan of action! He will do what He will do, and the quicker that we settle that matter in our hearts is the more speedily one will come to enjoy the blessed rest that comes from simply trusting!!!
We need at times to be reminded of the facts—the world is His and the fulness thereof; the cattle on a thousand hills and every beast of the forest belongs to Him; what have we that He hath need of, or what can we give to Him that He does not already own? Oh God, forgive me for pigeonholing you into a tiny weeny space when your fulness fills the whole universe!! It’s not my business dear soul, and nor is it yours, to work out how God is going to do what He said He would do. That’s His business, and when we leave the matters of “how-to” for God “to do”, He’ll never cease to amaze us!!
