Psalm 31:15 (NASB) My times are in your hand. “ exert from Joel Osteen, daily prayer series. “
We live in a microwave society. Where we just want any and everything in an instant. One thing I've learned is that God doesn’t always work on our timetable. He rarely does. However, in a single moment, God can change your life. Throughout scripture, we see examples of how God was working behind the scenes and instantly turned things around for his people.
The story of Joseph comes to mind. Jealousy, a slave, head of the household to a Pharoah, a prisoner and being set free; promoted to Viceroy. (Genesis 37). Scripture tells us, he is the same yesterday, today and forever, which means if he did it for them, he could instantly turn things around for you too!
You may be going through difficulties today; but be encouraged because your times are in God’s hands. Trust that God has your best interest at heart. He wants to take you further than you dreamed possible and work in your life in ways beyond what you have ever imagined. Also, while you’re waiting, don’t try to figure everything out. That’s only going to frustrate you. Let this truth sink into your heart today. Resist discouragement by speaking his word over your future. Keep standing, keep hoping, keep believing because he is working behind the scenes. Have faith because your times are in his hand. He will lead you into the life of victory he has for you.
Prayer: Father, today I humbly come before you, giving you all that I am. I trust that you are working things out in my favor. I set my focus on the knowledge that God is working all things out for my good. In Jesus name. Amen.
