God Is At Work In Your Circumstances.
Word For You by UCB 12 April 2017
Read or hear it online.
‘[His power]…is at work within us…to [carry out His purpose].’ Ephesians 3:20 AMP
One author writes: ‘We manage time, waste time, spend time, and save time. We wish it would come…we wish it would pass…we see time fly…we feel it drag. We watch clocks and carry calendars…yet God controls time.
He created time, and His creations are fenced by His time, directed and guided by His loving hand. We’re surprised by unexpected developments, but God is never surprised by even the most disastrous turn of events.
And your outlook on life changes dramatically when you know that at this very moment God is working within you “to carry out His purpose.” Think about how you’d live if you were absolutely certain God was at the end of your deadline. That even if there were mere seconds left, you believed with certainty He was working through your circumstances.
Believing God is there and about to provide is the essence of faith. “Jesus…is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8 NLT).
Time can’t diminish His love or His power to work within your life. He was there in the past; He’s present in the now, and He’ll be there in the future. The truth is, He has “all the time in the world…a thousand years or a day, it’s all the same to [Him]” (Psalm 90:4 MSG).
And His ultimate goal is to bring you into eternity, not just get you through to the end of the week.’ In every situation ‘[His] power…is at work within us…to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly…above all that we [dare] ask or think…[beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams].’
Are you facing a deadline today? Take five minutes away from the work and busyness, and invite God into the deadline.
