"Your Heavenly Father Knoweth..." Matthew 6:32
Do you ever wonder why we have certain trials in our lives? Do you ever wonder why some things are withheld from us. Do you ever feel God doesn't know your situation? Or that you are walking alone in this world?
I think all of us have, in some form or another, experienced doubts and fears in our lives... and even had questions unanswered. But rest assured that our loving Father knoweth all. He knows what our needs are, and He knows what to withhold from us. Yes, even withhold from us!
We might not always see God's hand of protection over us, or understand the whys. But when we trust the Father to be our guide, to walk before us... well, then we can rest assured He will shield us from all harm.
He will be our LIGHT in the darkness.
He will carry our griefs... for He was acquainted with grief(Isaiah 53:4).
He will bring us to understand that His will for our lives is PERFECT.
And only when we give Him our all... our questions, or fears, our griefs, our struggles... will we then be at peace.
And we will say, "Lord, for the glory of Thy name."
This is a beautiful song... that reminds me to bow before my Heavenly Father, for He knoweth all.
Bow the Knee
There are moments on our journey following the Lord
Where God illumines ev’ry step we take.
There are times when circumstances make perfect sense to us,
As we try to understand each move He makes.
When the path grows dim and our questions have no answers, turn to Him.
Bow the knee;
Trust the heart of your Father when the answer goes beyond what you can see.
Bow the knee;
Lift your eyes toward heaven and believe the One who holds eternity.
And when you don’t understand the purpose of His plan,
In the presence of the King, bow the knee.
There are days when clouds surround us, and the rain begins to fall,
The cold and lonely winds won’t cease to blow.
And there seems to be no reason for the suffering we feel;
We are tempted to believe God does not know.
When the storms arise, don’t forget we live by faith and not by sight.
Trust in your Heavenly Father today... for He knoweth what you are in need of.
