Gods ways are not our ways

Today's Scripture

So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I hereby put you in charge of the whole land of
Egypt." Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his finger and put it on Joseph's finger. He dressed him in robes of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. He had him ride in a chariot as his second-in-command, and people shouted before him, "Make way!" Thus he put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt. - Genesis 41:41-43.

Thoughts for Today

From our vantage point, life does not always move along smoothly according to our plans. Illness hits. A job goes away. A relationship is strained or lost. A loved one dies. A spouse leaves. And sometimes we wonder, "God, what in the world are You doing?"

That thought must have crossed Joseph's mind a time or two. One day he was enjoying the status of a favorite son. The next day his brothers sold him into slavery. One day he was Pharaoh's favorite assistant, entrusted with the care of everything the ruler owned. The next day he was in prison, falsely accused of improper advances on Pharaoh's wife. But God never wastes our time. Even with that question, "God, what in the world are you doing?" ringing in Joseph's mind, God was at work. In His time, God brought Joseph out of prison and put him in charge of the whole land of Egypt.

God's ways are not our ways, and His schedule is seldom synced with the calendar on our smart phone. But you can be sure of this: God never wastes our time. He is using today to prepare you for tomorrow. He has some great things for you to do. And He will show you what they are…in His time.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, even when we know the theological truth of your sovereignty, it is still hard to put our full trust in You. When we wonder, "God, what in the world are You doing?" calm us and remind us that You never waste our time. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
