“Humble yourselves, then, under God’s mighty hand, so that he will lift you up in his own good time. (1 Peter 5:6 GNT)
Our Father in Heaven knows the time and the place for everything. For He, created everything in and out of this earth. He created us, the moon, the stars, the sun, the clouds, the entire planet, and way much more. Therefore, we need to solemnly put our trust in Him because Dad knows what’s best for us. When trials come our way we must always remember to run to Jesus and not the world. We need to be humble before our God during these times of trials. Don’t fix your eyes on the things happening on this earth. Even though it seems like things are getting worse before it gets better. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus because you can’t see the bigger picture without Him. God is doing a new thing in this world. He is bringing order back to this planet and first He is starting with us.
If you fix your eyes on other things that’s when worries, fears and doubts might creep in. “Leave all your worries with him, because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) When we put all of our trust in Jesus we know that somehow it will all get better. Jesus is always with us in the good and the bad times. I know at times it may seem like things are going backwards but that is just the enemy trying to confuse you. In the physical things might seem like they are not working but in the spiritual realm God is manifesting it. When you feel Him the least that is when He is working the most. Remember the longer the wait the bigger the blessing or breakthrough. Jesus shows up at the right moment when you feel like all is lost. He restores you and makes you whole in Him.
You might be waiting on something and feel like God didn’t hear your prayers but wait for it. “Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true. But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true. It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed.” (Habakkuk 2:3 GNT) We should not go out and try to make things happen on our own because we will mess it all up. We are imperfect and God knows that, this is why He created Jesus. God needed a pure sacrifice, a reflection of Him that did no wrong and did not sin. We can seek after things and miss God. However, when we chase God we will never miss what He has for us. God’s timing is the best timing for the reason that God wouldn’t give us something we are not ready for.
