Danny is rebuilding a motorcycle. This will be an ongoing project for a while. He could not find the right pair of handlebars he was looking for at the swap meet, so he resorted to online purchasing. But it wasn’t that simple. Everything had to be right. More things than I even knew about. I couldn’t have gotten the right pair because I don’t know all the details. Finally, after much searching and reading, he found the pair he knew would work.
I hear the scripture speak to my heart this morning – “My ways are higher than your ways.”
Oh beloved, we want to get it done and have it happen quickly don’t we? Sometimes we fail to wait on God and what we get is not what we hoped for. Can we trust Him to wait? Can we release it to Him? Do we believe that He will withhold nothing good from us?
God wants to remind you – He has just the right answers to your prayers. He has just the right conditions for your life. He has every intricate detail He needs to make good decisions on your behalf. There’s no reason to rush Him – He is perfect in timing and results. There’s great danger in plunging ahead and making your own decisions – for He alone knows just what you need.
He knows what is going on in your life much better than you even do. How can that be you may ask? Because He sees it all from a totally different perspective. His eye is on you from before you were born. His hand is guiding your life because He knew you when you were being formed before you took your first breath. He also knows what’s ahead and how important it is for you to have the right things delivered to you. You could have all the money, resources and abilities – but nothing is worth leaving God’s perfect plan for your life. You may have money problems, no resources and feel you aren’t talented at a thing. That’s no problem for God. He doesn’t check the things man checks before He delivers your needs. And even when someone has said you aren’t worth it, you can’t handle it, or it’s too late for you – God is still working all things together for your good.
God loves you and He’s for you. Jesus walked through hell so you could live in the heavenlies with wisdom, power and love. This is no light thing – it’s amazing, unbelievable and miraculous! Run to Him this morning and release your desires and wants to Him. And trust Him as you walk freely waiting on Him in the Light of His purpose and peace.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Psalm 84:11-12 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord bestows grace and favor and honor; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, how blessed and greatly favored is the one who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing themselves to You with confident hope and expectation]. AMP
Psalm 34:9-10 The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.
