What we Know! June 29 2020
“ For we were born yesterday, and know nothing because our days on earth are a shadow. “ Job 38:9 NKJV.
As. I grow older I tend to think I know more. Life experience right? I think I know more things for certain. I think I know what is right in any and every situation. I think I know what God desires and His plans for me and for my family and for those I minister too. I even think I know what is best for those around me.
I have come to find, like Job in those words from God Himself: that I do not know much. My basis for understanding most things in life is extremely limited. But what I do know is that God is forever faithful and His ways and mercies are pure and righteous.i know that everything God does and has done flows from a father’s heart for His children.
My time in Ecuador was a reminder of God’s sovereignty. Weather in ministering to people who are religious and we’re missing the relationship, or serving with my fellow missionaries trying to do life together. One thing was certain, God was there. He knows what is best.
I find myself humbled again.and again in the presence of God.i am humbled because of who He is and who I am not.i am humbled because many times I don’t have the answers for the experiences here in recruitment in Canada. In the end, I am humbled because I simply do not know.
I need to press on to know the Lord even when I do not know the answers and reasons why He does or does not do certain things.As Job was reminded, May I know who I am, ...finite, sinful man. And who God is , sovereign and all knowing. In the end His purposes will be accomplished for me.
🙏. Father God You are sovereign and all knowing. I am mere dust and know nothing. Help me to be mindful of that and help me to stop and listen to You. May I trust that Your will for me will be accomplished. Thank You for my relationship with Jesus in whose name I pray.
