The Father’s Time

footsteps-edit

 

The Father rarely works on our terms or at least that’s how it usually is in my life. Things happen when we least expect it. In our minds we have a plan and how it should play out, then the Father unfolds His plan instead.

We can prepare for a lot of changes in life, but only He can execute them. Most of the time He’ll bring them to pass more quickly than we planned for them to happen. His timeline of life is vastly different than ours, but it’s perfect.  We may be shocked, surprised, or even upset over the event, but we can trust Him. We have too.

Where else can we put our trust, but in the One who created all things?

He isn’t surprised at what’s going on in your life. No matter what’s happening, He isn’t caught off guard. He knows far better than we do what and when it needs to happen in our lives. We can choose to get angry or stop and take a deep breath. We should ask for His discernment and wisdom to see what He sees.

He’s not on our clock, we’re on His. That can be very hard to remember at times, but trust Him today. Trust in His work and plans for your life. They’re far better than ours will ever be.

Father, thank You for being the author of our lives. You know the script and You execute it so well. Even when we can’t make sense of our life and the changes that come, help us to trust Your way. Strengthen us to hold on and believe You have far better plans than we do. You are so loving and wonderful. May we praise You even when life seems to be upside down for us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.


A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.
