I Can’t Know

August 21, 2014 — Leave a comment

imageMy best friend, Gwen, is forever saying “I Can’t Know.”  It usually comes when I have a question about something that could have several answers, when she’s giving me time to figure it out myself or she just really doesn’t know the answer.

I know that when I am seeking an answer, if I seek God instead of the answer, the answer finds me.

Time spent in the word and in prayer are the key to finding the answers we are searching for.

“Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight…” (Proverbs 3:5, NIV)

Let me caution you, if you don’t get an answer right away, wait…”Let Go and Let God.” Resist the temptation to make things happen!  image

imageGod’s timing is always perfect.  Scripture has shown us that time and time again.

Abraham and Sarah had to wait many years for the fulfillment of God’s promise, a son. Abraham was a 100 years old and Sarah 90 at the birth of their son, Isaac.  Can’t you just imagine the intense joy at the birth of this child?

“NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of things (we) hope for, being the proof of things (we) do not see and the conviction of their reality (faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses).” (Hebrews 11:1, AMP)

Love Heart, God has a plan for your life.  Continue to seek His guidance and wait for His timing and you too will experience intense joy! ~ Debra  image

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.” (Jeremiah 29:11,NIV)

 

 

 

 

My youngest son, Reid, has a bit of a temper.  When he was younger, I was constantly reminding him that he needed to be more patient by saying, “Patience is a Virtue!”  One afternoon he and his dad were working on his soap box derby car and Reid was having a little difficulty.  I smiled at him.  He proceeded to say before I could make a comment….Mom, patience is NOT a virchee!  We still tease him about it today.

Let’s take a look at the word “patience.” Definition:  endurance, staying power, tolerance, persistence. It’s been said be careful what you pray for because if you pray for patience you’ll get trials and situations that will test you at every turn.

Here are a view scriptures for your review. Psalms 40:1-3, Romans 12:12, Psalms 37:7, Philippians 4:11-13.

Look at Moses and the Israelites, Abraham and Sarah, David and Nehemiah to name a few of God’s people who grew through their persistence.

God knows best, His timing is impeccable and He keeps His promises!!  Patience IS a Virchee!!  Deb~

Here is a picture of Reid and his beautiful wife.  He grown up just a bit!
