God Knows What’s Best
Reading for the Day: Psalm 27:5
For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
What is it that our parents tell us? They know what is best for us. Even as an adult, your parents may tell you this. Why? They are older and have had more experiences than we have.
It can be irritating to hear, mostly because they may have a point…at times. But, we want to live our own lives in our own way, even if that means making mistakes. At least we would have made a decision on our own.
Well, there is One who is much older than our parents. When He says that He knows best, you can believe it. God created us and the world before that. He has seen thousands of lifetimes come and go. Relying on Him means taking all that knowledge into account and trusting His judgment.
God has an advantage over our parents. While they both love us without reservation, God can see a lot further down the road than they can. Parents, as well meaning as they are, can only guess at the outcome. On the other hand, God knows what will happen as a consequence of every decision that we make.
Trust Him to lead you down the right path in every area of your life: financial, romantic, spiritual, familial and emotional. At the crossroads of the journey, He always knows which way to go.
Prayer Suggestions: God, guide me each and every day to make the choices that will honor You.
