We’re on a ‘Need to Know’ Basis with the Lord!!

Think about it this way; Let’s just say you have a child and that child is experiencing some kind of life dilemma. As a parent there’s no way you’d withhold information or advice on how to handle the situation. That doesn’t even make sense. No, much to the contrary, you’d do whatever was in your power to help them through the problem. Easy decision!

Well, God….our Father, (He could be anything He wanted to be: His choice is to be our Father!) is so much better at this kind of stuff than we could possibly be. He cares about every little decision that we are faced with. We’re His own children and He wants very much to interact with us and to be involved in our lives. Our problem is that oftentimes we agonize over the situation without even asking the Lord what we should do. Part of our ‘growing up’ in the Lord is learning to relinquish these problems we encounter to Him rather than carrying them around and trying to figure out what to do on our own. Trust me…..you’re going to like this a whole lot better than trying to carry the load yourself. This is how we learn to put our trust in the Lord. It takes faith, and the good news is that you already have adequate faith to get started.

A little disclaimer: some might argue that the Lord doesn’t move quickly enough. I can totally relate to that; I’ve thought it myself many a time. Someone said it this way, “God’s never late”. I agree with that but I’d add, “He’s never early either”!! Reality is, that He’s always on time! He’s always going to do what’s best for you, EVERY TIME!

Oh, and you don’t necessarily have to be going through a trial in life to get this kind of attention from the Father. If we’d learn to go to Him with every single thing in our lives, then the problem times wouldn’t be so stressful…and maybe not last so long.
