Ellie was emotionally drained recently. I casually pulled out a craft. She always starts talking when we are doing some sort of project. “Mom, you always know what I need to feel better!” That was a good feeling mom moment. I explained to her that I know her well. I know what she likes and doesn’t like and what she needs and doesn’t need. Most of the time I get it right, but sometimes I get it wrong.
Jesus never gets it wrong. When he shows up he always does so with just what we need. He’s always on time. He shows up with what he knows will benefit us. He doesn’t show up in our time, with our desires or our agenda. He shows up in His time, in His way with what He knows will put us in the perfect will of God. It might not make sense in the moment. It might be really difficult. It might take longer then you would like but what He has for you is better then anything you could ever plan on your own. If we let Him, He can do “exceedingly more then we could ever hope or imagine.” Ephesians 3:20
Remember this verse when you are in a season of waiting. Remember this when you have your own agenda and idea of what should happen next. Remember these words when you have your own schedule. When you want to move before he has said go, remember He can be trusted. Remember that He will show up and when He does it will be with just what you need. It will be right.
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalms 27:14
