“Why does God withhold deliverance at times? It is in order to bring greater glory from the situation. It isn’t because He doesn’t care. It is because His plan for mankind is resting in these events. It is a finely tuned plan that involves many people and situations - all operating at the same time. It can seem cruel at times. But God knows that His children cannot worship Him if they are in bondage and lost all hope. He won’t allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear, so He has a plan of deliverance for each of us.”
Remembering today how beautiful and specific his plan is for each of us. Our days have been written down in the Book of Life and not one goes unnoticed by our God. He has set me on this planet for an incredibly specific, important purpose - and all I must do is wait on him. Move when he says to move and rest when he says to wait. Praying today that God gives me great faith to be obedient to his directions and not attempt to make a way for myself.
“I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.” [Exodus 5:6]
