Gods group thoughts for 9/29/2012 “Father Knows Best”

“Our Daily Bread”   


The Daily Devotions of Greg Laurie                                  


1 Peter 4:19Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.  (NKJV)

God, our Father in heaven, is omniscient… This means that God is all-knowing… Psalm 147:4He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.  (NKJV) 

For God to know every detail about each of the people living today is just a drop in the bucket, compared to naming the number of stars God created… (300 Sextrillion stars – that’s almost 43 trillion times the number of people living today !!) There are just over 7 billion people alive today… Here is an interesting link showing the estimated real time population of the world… http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

God knows the past, the present, and the future of each and every one of us… God even knows the number of hairs on each of our heads…Matthew 10:30… And God knows our needs long before we ask Him in prayer for anything…Matthew 6:8“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”  (NKJV)

And God never makes a mistake… His path is always the perfect way for us to go… David, who wrote the following scripture, knew this very well…Psalm 18:30As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.  (NKJV)

The opening scripture, and this last written Word by David…give us the key on how to walking with the Lord just about all the time… I say “just about all the time”; because even a Christian who is Spirit filled (walking with the Lord) will sin…  Every sin must be quickly confessed, to again become righteous in God’s eyes…1 John 1:9

The goal for every Christian should be to live their lives in absolute faith and trust in the Lord, as they do their very best to live in the will of God… What I wrote yesterday, was titled… “Get Settled In”…  It takes some Christians longer than others to finally mature in their walk with the Lord, to “Get Settled In”, as I call it… Some Christians will flounder for years, because their stubborn self believes they know better than God… For the Christian, their life should not be about money… And it should not be about how much we can accumulate in our lifetime… And it’s not about keeping up with the Joneses next door… It is about putting God first in our lives, and realizing that if we listen to Him every step of the way…our lives will be as perfect as God wants it to be…

I often quote the following scripture written by Solomon, King David’s son…who was both the wisest and the richest man in the world…1 Kings 3:10-14… With all of his wealth, wisdom, and power…Solomon finally realized that everything he possessed was all in vain…Ecclesiastes 1

Proverbs 3:5-6Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.  (NKJV)

God through His Word, the Bible…gives us everything we need to know in order to become a Christian…and then how walk with the Lord as His obedient child… We just have to look to Christ…seeking Him to become our personal Lord, our Master, and our Savior… This is accomplished as we humble ourselves, realizing that we are sinners…by understanding and obeying the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…  After God graces us by accepting us into His family as one of His children, it is as simple (or as hard) as getting out of our own way; and letting the Lord lead us down His perfect path for our lives…

Heavenly Father, I pray Your Word cuts right to the very core of the soul of all of those in need (Hebrews 4:12-13), to awaken them and draw them to yourself…John 6:44  Help all of us Lord, to learn exactly what we must do in order to be pleasing in Your sight… I pray for a faithful commitment by all of Your children, to live in Your will for their lives…in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…
