Everything Together


He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth.


Ephesians 1:8-10


Oh WOW!  Have you ever just had one of those days where you know God was there?  That was my day today!  It was filled with such good stuff and God revealed secrets that have been hidden and granted peace to what could possible be a desperate situation.


We live in a world of instant gratification.  We want everything right this second.  Waiting is bad and typically if we do not get what we want right away we pout and question God.  We then decide to make a move without Him and BAM, we lose!  We fail!


I've been there.  A lot!  But recently He has changed my perspective.  What I used to want now, I've learned is not always the best thing.  Instead I have learned that His timing is so much better and I must patiently wait on Him. 


He has a plan.  In order for all things to work out for good according to His plan, we have to wait on Him to put things in order.  Events have to align. Information has to be revealed.  Time has to pass. 


That is exactly what is happening.  True character will be exposed.  Secrets revealed. Good will overcome evil in the end.  You do not go up against the goodness of God and mess with His children.  He does not tolerate it nor will He allow it!  His word promises He will deliver and rescue but we must be still and allow Him to work.


God will ultimately have the victory.  He never loses.  Though the story may not end the way we would write it, it will end bringing Him and Him alone all the glory!!!
