Our God knows all–which is much more than we know. We know that God is in control of all things and works everything for the greater good of his children (the ones who have received salvation through faith). “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28). God’s purpose is God’s will, where we find that nothing can escape it. The good news? Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’” declares the LORD, “‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
It’s easy to fall into a trap of worry and anxiety, especially when you can’t control your situation. But the God of Angel Armies is orchestrating your life for the better, according to the overall big picture. You need not ever worry, for he knows what you need and will provide you with it.
Matthew 6:33-34 says to “seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
As a recap, we know that God is all-knowing. He called you to his love through the death of his son, and he desires only good for you. If you seek him above all, he will provide you with everything you need. His will is “good, pleasing, and perfect” (Romans 12:2). Therefore, pray for faith. Kneel consistently before our God and pray that he will strengthen your faith to believe and trust God’s will.
Verse to reflect on:
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
