We’ve all been there! That perfect situation that we are convinced is right for us, that never comes to pass. Perhaps it is that perfect person that you are certain you are destined to spend the rest of your life with that doesn’t feel the same way about you. Perhaps, it is that job or promotion that you know in your heart is right for you, but it goes to someone else. Perhaps the business deal or loan that is exactly what you need, falls though. Perhaps everything is going great, then you get a surprise diagnosis from the doctor that changes everything.
Surprises happen! Life is full of them! Something they are pretty hard to take. In fact, sometimes they stink! Sometimes we can only shake our head and say, “why God? Why would you not give me something that is so perfectly suited for me?” Oh Lord, forgive me when I whine!
The words above are the lyrics to a song written by Zane King and Charles Isbell several years ago but oh, what a reminder and message and what a tremendous song! We see things in the here and now! God sees things from beginning to end. God has a will and a plan for each of our lives and God’s will is perfect! What may seem a perfect scenario to us, may in fact, not be a part of His Master Plan. Following our plan can often interfere and get in the way of God’s will.
May this be our prayer for God to keep us in His will so we don’t get in His way! We may never understand the reasons why on this earth but we can rest assured that God is in full control, He knows what He is doing and He is working out His Master Plan in our lives in everything He allows, or doesn’t allow! We serve a loving Savior who we can ALWAYS depend on to do what is best for us! Praise God!
