Reflections From The Bible And Life

God Does The Right Thing At The Right Time

Genesis 1:1-2:2; Exodus 14:15-15:1; Luke 24:1-12

God created everything with perfect timing and in the right sequence, such that the nature of every creation’s existence wasn’t disrupted. Everything was well-planned and executed. He made us His image and likeness and gave us the dominion over the creatures of the sky, the land and the seas. From that day on, He has never stopped loving us.

When the Israelites were enslaved and oppressed by the Egyptians, God sent Moses to deliver them from Egypt. When the Israelites were stranded by the Red Sea, God did the impossible: He parted the Red Sea to for them to cross over, in order or to save them.

Likewise, in Jesus’ time, the Lord did the impossible: He rose from the dead on the third day, as predicted by Jesus, inline with the prophecies in the Old Testament. Everything seemed to have been planned ahead of time.

We don’t need to worry about anything as long as we have faith in Him and do our best, for He has our backs. God knows what we need even before we even see the need to pray for such need. He knows what is best for us.

There are times when we expect our prayers to be answered, and yet they were not answered in the way we expected them to be answered. We may think or feel that the Lord has abandoned us, when in fact, the answer to your prayers are staring at your faces. Even silence is an answer. Some things that we ask for may not be good for us, and that’s why we are not blessed with their fulfillment. What He does, though, is He gives us something better than what we ask for, which is best for us. Only the Lord knows what we really need, and what is best for us. We should trust in Him. We should have the patience and trust that even in the midst of financial difficulties and other trials, He will move mountains, part bodies of oceans, and do other things humanly impossible, just to save us. Of course we should also do our part in solving our own issues rather than just sit around and wait for money to come in or something. What I’m saying is He will never allow us to suffer beyond our capacity, as long as we help ourselves, and ask for His help, as well as believe in His capacity to deliver us from these trials.
