"God knows us so well that he does a number of little providential things at the very moment of our need. We think we have planned and executed everything all by ourselves. We are not aware that it has been God's plan and that He has been out there ahead of us the whole time."
-A.W. Tozer (Jesus, Our Man in Glory)
I love when you look back through your life and just can't help but stop and praise the Lord for his hand in every moment. It's in those moments where you realize the loving care of a Father. How small I feel in the midst of my Savior's plan. These past couple weeks have been a whirlwind of God's plan unfolding, rather rapidly in our life. God has taken us through an incredible journey, and I am so excited to see what He has planned next for me and Bradley as we move to Florida in a couple months. I am reminded of Isaiah 55:8,9: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. "
My Guide is the Creator of the Universe! He is infinite while I am finite. What a comfort to know I can rest in the high way's of Christ. God has had a plan for my life before the foundation of the world. To understand the deep realities of this truth I must walk with my Lord. As A. W. Tozer says, "As we trust in the Spirit, live in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit, we will realize that God is always on our side." As we grow closer to our Lord we will realize that "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Rom 8:31). He holds the whole world in His hands.
I am so excited to serve a God with such power, such authority, such might and such love. My God is High Above.
