God Does What Is Best

Ps 32 10



“Accept the way God does things for who can straighten what he made crooked?”

Ecclesiastes 7:13


Accept the way God does things?   “Linda, you can’t be serious.”  Yes, I am serious.  I cannot overlook what the verse says.  “Accept the way God does things.”  The fact is God loves us, and He wants the best for us.  God’s way of doing things is vastly different than ours.  If I could have some things done instantly, they would be done, but I am so glad God did not give me some of the things I wanted immediately;  Some things I’m glad He didn’t give me at all.  We could complain and talk until we’re blue in the face, but that will not make God answer us faster or even get Him to move out of His perfect timing.  God has good things in store for each of His children, and the good things He has for us ARE WORTH waiting for.  Doing things our way can only mess things up.  However, when God works, His work is done in His perfect timing, and everything works out for the good of those who love Him and according to His purpose.



REFLECTION“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men, yet they cannot fathom the work God has done from beginning to end,” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).  Are you willing to accept God’s ways?  Will you submit to God’s timing and wait for Him to work out everything?  Remember, God is your Heavenly Father and only wants the best for you, and no one is able to stop Divine Providence.  Accept how God does things because His ways are not our ways.  You do not know the future, but God sees what is up ahead of you.  He is the only One Who truly knows your future and what lies ahead.  Consider the work of God and His sovereignty.  God has not forgotten about you, and He is still in control.



PRAYER Heavenly Father, nothing stops Your divine providence.  Your Word goes forth and Your Word will accomplish the purposes for which it was sent.  Your ways, how You work, is something I cannot fathom, but I know everything is working together for my good because I love You and am called according to Your purpose.  Father, I am humbled by Your goodness and Your faithfulness, and though I may not understand how You work everything out, I am trusting and hoping in You for You, O God, are still in control.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,

I will not be disgraced.
Therefore, I have set my face like a stone,
determined to do his will.
And I know that I will not be put to shame.
Isaiah 50:7
