No Surprises With God
Isn’t it wonderful that God is never surprised by what goes on in the world? Since He created it and is sovereign over everything in it, we can trust Him no matter what is happening around us.
In His great and never-failing mercy, our Heavenly Father gives countless promises to make sure we fully understand that we have nothing in this world to be worried about.
Serious students of the Bible quickly identify many things in the scriptures that God has promised. Just for kicks, let’s look at a few of the things He has not promised to do:
- To leave or forsake us
- To be against us
- To let something separate us from His love
- To not work all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose
- To not prepare a place for us and then come back for us
- To not answer prayer
- To not heal our land when we repent
The list goes on and on.
Seek The Kingdom
God is faithful! Jesus Himself told us not to worry about food or clothing but to seek the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto us. That means He will take care of those things. It may not be exactly what we’ve been accustomed to, but He promises that we will always have what we need.
In these present times, we need to encourage one another with the Word of God. We need to be reading and studying it more than ever. What is happening in our world should come as no surprise. Sin has been increasing for a long time. At some point, God will decide it is enough.
However, we need not worry about that probability either. God has everything under His control and will accomplish His purposes in His timing. Until then, we have His very sure promises that we need not worry but to trust in His sovereignty.
