Until it Comes
Philippians 4:7 ESV
And the peace of GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in CHRIST JESUS.
I am often asked the question, "How do I know that this is the right thing to do?" MY answer is usually this, "Don't move until GOD gives you peace about it." You see before these words in the scriptures, GOD tells us to be anxious for nothing. Then to pray, supplicate and give thanks. Yet, we often miss what follows which is HIS peace. It says HIS peace passes our understanding. You see, there are going to be times in your life where you don't know. You won 't understand, you'll even look crazy to others around you. Yet, all of this may have to take place before HIS peace comes. Not because the decision you're about to make is the wrong one. It may be or it may be the right decision for a different time.
GOD does all things well. We often think HE is late, but the truth is, we are just impatient. Thus, the reason for the wait. You see in the wait our faith grows and our patience matures. In the wait things line up to perfection; past anything that we can understand. The moment we let go of our need to know, is when we can rest in the arms of HE who knows all and who works all things out for our good. Trust GOD, and wait on HIM. Trust HIS understanding, HIS wisdom and HIS knowledge and rest in the peace of HIS promises.
