Oh To Be Wise Meditations
There are times when everything goes right. When the green lights connect and all the doors open. The process is so smooth that you are anxious about things just going so well. Many times our prayer and preparation will allow God to move freely and keep us out of Gods way. It’s amazing to see The LORDs will unfold in your life. Unfortunately there are times also when nothing goes right. Everything is a hassle and no doors seem to even creak open. No opportunity, no answer, and even your prayers seem ineffective. We get impatient and try to figure things out on our own and make more of a mess. It is always better to wait on Gods perfect will but we miss a lot because of bad timing. We rush things rather pray about them and we do nothing rather instead of being obedient to the word of God. We need to be hearers and doers of the word. Think about this: If God can't trust you with earthly mammon how can he trust you with spiritual riches? We need to be faithful in the little things so when the big things come our way we are ready to face it. God is constantly trying to build our faith and put our trust in Him. He is constantly testing so that we can grow and mature. Round and round the mountain we go like the Israelites of old in the wilderness. If timing is everything than we need to be in line with Gods perfect will as much as possible. In the best and worse of times let us be faithful in the little things. Yes, lets look at our temptations more like tests and not focus on the giants of evil desires within. God in Christ has given us a way out of every temptations. The LORD does not tempt us, but he does test us. It is a huge difference. Lets keep our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher or our faith. Look how he works all things together, even the mistakes we did by not waiting and not doing.
