God Is Working Behind the Scenes
16-20 “So, Job, use your head;
this is all pretty obvious.
Can someone who hates order, keep order?
Do you dare condemn the righteous, mighty God?
Doesn’t God always tell it like it is,
exposing corrupt rulers as scoundrels and criminals?
Does he play favorites with the rich and famous and slight the poor?
Isn’t he equally responsible to everybody?
Don’t people who deserve it die without notice?
Don’t wicked rulers tumble to their doom?
When the so-called great ones are wiped out,
we know God is working behind the scenes.
Focus on the last sentence above, we know God is working behind the scenes. There are times of life when we just can't see God working on our behalf. The story of life is unwritten in a new day to our eyes because we can't see what is truly ahead. We learn to trust God and lean on him in all times of life. We know that God does work behind the scenes of our lives.
It's important to see that seasons comes and go in our lives. Learning to live in our now of life and not missing out on what this day will bring. I have spent the last few days at a beautiful lake house and I love hearing the birds sing. This morning I am home and thinking over the beautiful of the lake, a big beautiful house and family. I had five days there and now I opened my front door to still hear birds sing. Beauty is often found in the heart and the memories of life. The joy of living and knowing that beauty of God is seen here too.
Life is short and we often miss out on little things of life. I wonder how many people take time to hear a bird sing or look at flowers along the way of a walk. There was a time I was taking a walk with a friend name Lois. She mentioned the beauty of the flower and I said, "what flower". I had to turn to see what she saw but I missed it. I have learned to slow down in life and take moments into my mind. Here is the truth, while being at that beautiful lake house, I had to stop my mind wishing I had a lake house like that. This family has another big beautiful house in Napa and a pool too. They have worked hard to have what they have and planned things to be able to do that. I haven't planned so well and I have learned to enjoy the time I can have on their lake house. A vacation for a few days and that's beautiful too. God continues to bless my family and I.
BEHIND THE SCENES ~
Psalm 24 New International Version (NIV)1 The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
2 for he founded it on the seas
and established it on the waters.
God has planned a long time ago for this day to happen. In the book of Genesis, he begins forming things. The book of Revelations, he tells us what is ahead. In the middle of the Bible are guiding factors of life. Examples of others gone before us and change happened. Today, we can live in this day and see the blessings of God. We can turn our thoughts to knowing God is at work on our behalf. Yet, what you do and what you think about is important. Living in today, but planning for tomorrow. The way we spend our money, the saving of it, the investing of it and giving to God first (Tithes). Purpose to learn from yesterdays of life and grow into a better person daily. Live by example of Jesus and allow peace to fill your mind. Happy new day!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
