The Lord's Time


It Is Written, John 13:7, Jesus answered and said to him, ( Simon Peter ), what I am doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this.
It is common for many Christians to want to serve God in some way. New Christians usually get ideas about going into the ministry. There is nothing wrong with these types of feelings.
The problem comes up when we try to make things happen by our own efforts. When these efforts fail, and they usually do, we often get confused or depressed. The next thing we do, if we are smart, is to ask God to show us what He wants us to do. Again more often than we would like, we receive no answer at that exact time. How can all this be? Proverbs 3:5-6 says it best. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will guide your path.
When we became Christians we learned about faith and trust in the Lord Romans 12:2 says, do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
So how can we interpret all of this in our lives? A believer knows that God wants the best for us. God's best is accomplished in His time. I believe His timing, is based in part on our actions. Whatever it is, if we leave it to God, he will take care of it.
God gave each of us a job to do. We may not be happy with what we are doing right now, but we must sincerely thank God, then dedicate our best efforts to Him. When we do, God opens doors for us. We do God's will by taking the steps He gives us, to get His best for us. He knows what it takes to make the plan succeed, and He arranges circumstances to accommodate His plan for us. God bless you and your family. Praise Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
