I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him. Ecclesiastes 3:14 (NASB)
Sometimes life doesn’t make sense. You are sitting wondering why a certain event has happened, and no reason can be found. These can anxious moments trying to make sense of what has happened, either over a period of time or suddenly.
One such event in my life was leaving a job in the 1980s and moving back home. I pondered why it had happened that way, it certainly had not been my plan. It was not long after returning home that my dad died suddenly in his sleep on a Saturday morning. I can say now that it was the providence of God that I was there, to care for my mum and to manage affairs.
God prepares us gradually for such life events in a gentle way, so when the time comes we can manage. His plans are perfect and effective in all our life events. He is God Almighty but He is also our Loving Father, He has our best interests and our future planned meticulously.
Dear reader, we cannot add or take away anything from our Father’s perfect plan for us. We simply need to trust Him in each moment. Then in time we can look back in awe at how He blessed us.
