And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
Just as today’s Bible verse says, you can be sure that God has good things planned for your life.
Not only are you and I to wait actively, patiently, and silently for God’s best in our lives, we're to wait expectantly. We're to live in eager anticipation of what God is going to do next.
Don't ever say, “God, when are You going to start working in my life?” Because He already is working in your life. It’s just a matter of believing it.
Now, the world says seeing is believing. But the Bible says believing is seeing. You and I can begin to see how God is working as we wait on Him and trust Him.
So often you and I want an explanation for what's going on in our lives. We ask God why. It's not wrong to ask God why. Jesus Himself asked God why on the cross. And there are times when we are to ask for wisdom and direction. God may choose to give us an answer.
But for the most part, the question is not why. It is how.
How are we going to respond to what God is doing in our lives? How are we going to respond to the circumstances of life? How are we going to allow God to work in us, forming our character?
You know, most Christians are like photographs, they develop best in the dark. And character is what we are in the dark.
You and I need to learn to look past our problems to see the promises of God today. When we do, we’ll become the men and women that God has called us to be!
THANK GOD FOR HIS PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE,
EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS YET!
