“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up on the last day.” (John 6:44)
Every once in a while, we get a glimpse of all God has been weaving in and through our lives. One event suddenly connects to the other, like a count by number picture.
The dots begin to connect.
It is then that we see the activity of God in our lives, even when we couldn’t see Him, hear Him, or think He was possibly present.
And there He was – working His plan out for us, loving us, protecting us and leading the way for us. He knew exactly where He was bringing us.
Nothing which occurred was happenstance. It all had purpose and continues to have purpose as He unfolds His plan for our lives. He has been calling us to Himself every single day throughout our lives.
We need to believe that God was in our past. In that way, we will also believe He is in our future.
“Faith: belief that God can do miraculous good even with terrible failure.” (Beth Moore, Believing God)
May we look at where we are today, believing He was active in our past so that we will be filled with hope for our future. God is not confined by circumstances nor by time. Every hour and minute of our lives is under His control. He works all of it for our good and for His glory.
“You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.”
(Psalm 139:16, NLT)
