We have been in New Zealand for the past two and a half years while my hubby studies at Bible College. It has been such an incredible time, one that we will always look back on as the most BLESSED of experiences!
But in 9 days, our time here ends… and we are returning to Israel. Emotions are mixed. Busyness is high. Fears are great. And Unknowns are many. BUT GOD….
It is in times like these, that all we have learned over the past couple of years is put into practice, is recalled, and is needed. The Sovereignty of God over all is the blanket under which we take shelter, and it is what gives us His peace.
Job 42:2 states, “I know that you can do all things,and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”
What a relief! Whatever God purposes, no man, plan, idea, finance, or evil can thwart.
In chapter 23:13 Job also says, “But he is unchangeable, and who can turn him back?
What he desires, that he does.
According to this verse, whatever happens to us is not only what God purposes, but what God desires for us!
Surely I can rest in these truths. It seems that I’m in good company, the company of the likes of Job, as I grapple to accept and rest in this undying love and deep care of my Heavenly Father.
Help me, Lord, to truly trust in your ways, and to faithfully walk in the paths that fulfill Your purposes and desires for my family and I.
