Family and friends how are you today?
There are times where we go through trying times and we ask ourselves if God still cares.
We wonder if He is even concerned. Does He know we need Him?
When Lazarus dies Mary says the same thing to Jesus.
"If only you had come sooner, my brother wouldn't have died."
We want the kind of God who prevents bad times from befalling us.
The Bible says in
AKJV: I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
NLT: This is what the Lord says: "I will go before you, Cyrus, and level the mountains. I will smash down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.
NIV: I will go before you and will level the mountains ; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.
He is the kind of Father who goes ahead of you.
There is nothing called the future for God or the past.
Everything is ever present for Him. He already knows your future because He has been there before.
He already knew that Adam and Eve would fall to temptation and eat the forbidden fruit.
He already had a plan to rescue fallen man.
You only need to trust Him enough to surrender your life into His hands.
We try to control the outcome of our lives and to shape our future using our academic information and common sense.
We get frustrated when our resolutions for the year fail to materialize.
I want to assure you planning without Jesus is like failing to plan.
You need someone who has been there before to be assured of victory.
Trust Him and He will make all the crooked places right and level all the humps and bumps in your path.
Have a blessed day.
