  Only The Truth, November 2003

God knows our weaknesses, and our fears, and He not only takes them into consideration, but He plans things so we will grow to trust him more and more each day. This is a statement of fact. If you have any doubts, let me refer you to Exodus 14:11, God's people escaping from Egypt, and Pharaoh was about to attach them in the desert", it says: "They said to Moses "Was it because there are no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die?"". The people didn't think God cared about them, and they thought they were about to be killed, but in Exodus 13:17 it says: "When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through to Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, "if they face war, then might change their minds and return to Egypt.". You see, God had this all planned out, for their best, and for His glory. Notice, that God didn't tell them what He was doing. I will say that again, God had a plan, but it was His plan, and they only needed to trust Him to complete it. Of course that doesn't make the people feel any better, so when they started complaining to Moses, God provides an answer in Exodus 14:13,14. Moses said" Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still.". God didn't reveal his plan, but he didn't leave them in fear either. He said trust me, be still, and wait. Later, God does reward their trust, by saving them from the Pharaoh and his army in a powerful and miraculous way. The people didn't need to worry, God had everything under control, His control, as the only one who can control everything. How often do we find ourselves worrying over things we cannot control or change? How often do we try to get God to do things our way, when we know that His way is better? I know I do these things all the time. I'm not perfect, and thank God I don't need to be perfect. I only need to trust in the One who is perfect, and who will provide for my every need, and who cares about me even more than I care about myself.
Some of the details of my life, as I allow Christ to live out His life through me.
