Comforting Words

I am always amazed at how the Lord uses the internet to reveal to me answers to questions I have for Him. This is an excerpt from a group that I have joined on Facebook called Daily Prayer for your Husband.

Look at what Agur says in verse 4, “Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has gathered up the wind in the hollow of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and the name of his son? Tell me if you know!” Agur doesn’t ask why, he asks who! He knows why, that’s why he prayed today’s prayer. He knows that he doesn’t need to understand why when he knows who!

When we realize God is the Almighty, the Creator of all the earth, the Alpha and the Omega, the God of power, strength, understanding, wisdom, compassion, discipline, truth and love, that’s when we stop asking why. Agur wanted truth to reign in his life so that he could have trust.

Today, trust that the Lord has your husband (or yourself) right where he needs to be and that God has him in the palm of his hand and will do great things in him as he’s there. This is why Paul says, “we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Paul gets this.

This is a hard pill to swallow if you and/or your husband are in a rough time in your life. But, this is where we grow the most if we choose to. The other option, stay bitter and closed minded, wallow in our vomit and stay right where we are. Let's take a step back today ladies and try and see all things for what they are and with the bigger picture in mind. Ask God to reveal to you His plan in all of this and to see things from His perspective. Just as children often don't understand and fight against our reasoning for things, we too often don't understand and fight against the protection and discipline of our Heavenly Father.

I don't think there's a thing that I could add to this. :0)

Relishing in His goodness...
