Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams] — Ephesians 3:20 AMP
Each one of us has no grasp of how much God truly cares for us. I find myself thinking “How could God care about me when there is so much going on in the world?” We try to place God into our own limited thinking instead of releasing our minds to the act of blind faith that not all things can be understood – let alone the awesomeness of our Lord. The beauty of just who God truly is, and all that He is able to do, should aid in receiving the promise that we have in Him! He is so great that He cares for each and every one of us and has a great plan for our lives even before we are born! Jeremiah 1:5 states
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart for my holy purpose.
You may be thinking “Ok well I have no idea what my purpose even is” or better yet “I feel a desire but no direction on which path to take”. I know from very personal experience how these “silent times” can weigh on us. But that’s ok! Our natural way of thinking is so accustomed to knowing the solution before we’ve even heard the problem. And if that’s not bad enough there are times when the only solution to the problem is in God’s hands and timing. Man, I know for me excepting that realization is a real faith builder all by itself! I’m getting better but boy I don’t always hit the mark on that one!
The saying goes “you may not see God coming but you sure know when He’s passed by!” Some things and paths can only be revealed by His hand, and the best thing and most important thing we can do, is just keep doing the last thing He instructed us to do. Doing all that He has set us to do with patient perseverance. (ughhh I know another tough cookie to swallow)
The point being we never know when or how He will act but we are guaranteed to never miss out all He has planned for us. We have a Father who is interested in the smallest details of every part of our lives. From brushing our teeth to that bad report we get from the doctor He is there always and forever.
Let us commit to openly receiving the incomprehensible love He has for us. Letting Him guide us in the wonderful plan and purpose He has as the special you that He has made us to be.
Be Forever Blessed
