In dealing with any adverse condition, circumstance, or trouble one thing’s for sure: God knows all about it and He has the final say! This was proven at the beginning of the book of Job when He limited what Satan could do (see Job 1:12 and Job 2:6) and at the end when God commanded a double blessing over Job’s life (see 42:10) and we see that “The LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning . . .” (Job 42:12a).
But what about the in-between? That’s the hard thing about trying to hold on while going through the trials of this life isn’t it? We don’t know the outcome as we are traveling through those difficult times. How awesome would it be to see the beginning from the end; yet, that would not allow our faith to be exercised and stretched, for the Bible says, “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Corinthians 5:7) and “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).
While we may not be able to see or even understand everything we are dealing with or going through; while we may not have an omniscient overview of our life, God does. He is omniscient meaning He is all-knowing. The Bible lets us know, “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite” (Psalm 147:5). There are no limits to what He knows, sees, or understands.
Isaiah 46:10 also reassures us that God is, “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” In other words, to reiterate my previous statement: “God has the final say” and His purposes for our lives will stand because He is the only one who knows all about it!
Be encouraged today, my friend, knowing that God’s got this no matter how chaotic, difficult, hurtful, or wrong it seems right now. He, in His divine sovereignty, sees it all and has it all under control. His view of our life is so much better than our own. Hold on and trust the God who is infinitely all-knowing.
Have a very blessed day!
