We carefully plan out our lives. We were making sure to write out our goals.
We write down details so specific that we can see it coming to pass in our mind’s eye.
We plan to finish college by a certain age, be a partner at our job by a certain age, get married by a certain age, buy a house with a white picket fence by a certain age, and then to have 2.5 children by a certain age.
We make plans for what our spouse will look like and what qualities and characteristics they will possess.
Never in a million years did we ever plan to be blindsided by a virus.
Never did we see this coming.
We had to plans in our carefully planned life to be sidetracked by a virus. None of us ever make plans for illness or disease, but somehow, it sneaks us all by itself and blindsides us too.
We always plan for good and exciting things in our lives but never plan for when the worse can happen.
Now, how dramatically has your life changed? Did you lose your job, work at home, confined to your home, not able to spend time with family, not able to socialize in person, not able to attend church services?
To think we are in charge of our own lives is a huge joke.
We have no control. We sooner you admit this, the more freedom you will feel.
Our lives are solely in the hands of our almighty creator.
Your current situation has not taken Him by surprise. He knew every turn you would take, every step you would take, and every decision you would make before you made them.
He knew you would either accept Him or deny Him, but His heart hopes that you will love Him.
Today, amid this calamity, confusion, and fear, He is waiting for you to reach out to Him.
He will calm your fears, help you to see that He is working things out even when we don’t see Him.
He will forgive all the years you denied His existence. All you have to do is ask with a sincere heart.
It is time to give up the control you think you possess of your life over to God.
It is time for Him to be the sole source of provision, protection, promotion, etc. over to Him. It is time to stop fighting and denying Him.
Seek Him now while He is still able to be found. One day, many will call out to Him. They will seek Him, and they will search for Him, but He will not answer nor be found.
These words are not said to bring fear to your heart. It is said in truth. God’s word says in Proverbs 1:28: 28Then they will call on me, but I will not answer; they will earnestly seek me but will not find me. 29For they hated knowledge and chose not to fear the LORD.…
Before this day comes, seek God out now. Do not let this day when God will not be found, or He will not answer you sneak up on you.
Just as no human knows the day that they will draw their last breath, also no man knows the day God will decide not to found.
There is no better day than today to search for God. Do not let pride, which is one of the deadly sins, keep you from Him. If allowed, our pride can rob us of our eternal life with God.
If there were ever an excellent time to seek God out, this is it! There is no better time than today to ask Him to take full control of your life. Let Him know you give it up to Him willingly.
There are always keys decisions we make in our lives that turn things around. Choosing God is an excellent decision that will change your life forever.
