Sooner, Rather Than Later

Sooner, rather than later, things will happen. They will have already occurred. Submitting those things to God ensures that the journey will be far easier and that the outcomes are of greater value than what you could have anticipated.

I woke up this morning feeling the challenge of the schedule ahead of me for the day. But here I am at three-thirty in the afternoon, having accomplished three-quarters of what was an almost overwhelming challenge and what took most of my attention at seven o’clock this morning. I am alive and well, God has blessed, I have had the opportunity to share of His Glory, I have had the opportunity to minister, I have had the opportunity to go to work and produce income, I have loved someone, I have shown compassion, and I have received compassion from another. ALL of this occurred within the slice of time that beforehand appeared to be a challenge and a struggle for me this morning.

We really need to know that God knows what He is doing and that time is in His Hands. Everything will happen within its time. Because our lives are in God’s hands, we shouldn’t worry about how things will be orchestrated because they really are in His Hands.

Greet each day praising God and glorifying Him. Seek God’s Face in all things. Seek to glorify Him in all things. Then we can be certain that at the end of the day the journey was far easier and the outcomes are of greater value than what we could have anticipated.
