Hebrews 13:5 "Let you conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Today has been one of those days when I'm so glad God knew what would take place and why. When I woke this morning He already knew what I would face. He knew what you would face too. He knew I would go through situations that would be difficult to handle and that would test me in the ways He has and will. He knew that people would say and do things that would hurt. But He desires to use them for my good and His glory.
We become tempted to complain (and sometimes I do). But God doesn't want us to complain "Philippians 2:14 "Do all things without murmurings and disputings." He only wants us to take those things to Him in prayer. How often do you find yourself complaining...either to Him or someone else? Does it really make us feel better to complain about those things? It might for the moment...but all it accomplishes is gossip and focusing on those things. Instead of complaining we should go to God in prayer and seek Him for the help and wisdom in how to respond to those situations and people.
So the thought for today is that God knew what you would face today. It did not come as a surprise to Him. And guess what...He knows what we'll face tomorrow. What a great promise that He will be there to go through your tomorrow too!!
