Posts Tagged ‘His best’

In John 2 we see the first miracle Jesus performed. He was at a wedding and the bridegroom’s family ran out of wine, not a good thing in those days. Jesus’ mother asked Him to do something about it. Although His time hadn’t arrived to go public He obeyed His mother. Water was turned into wine. But it wasn’t just any wine it was the best.

God doesn’t do things half-baked. When God provides it’s always the best and for the best. I thought I was going to school to learn a few skills to help those suffering from depression and anxiety. However, what  God was doing was planting a seed for what He wanted to grow. I never thought that I would be working on a Bachelor’s degree in human services and then go on to become a counselor. This was not in my sites.  A little disclaimer: It’s not always going to be this drastic.

We want something and pray for it as the scripture says, and we get something else. We may not realize it at that point, eventually, though, we will see that it was His best for our best. And the prayer may not get answered right away either. His timing is everything. He will provide what is needed when it is needed.

He has a plan that we need to trust Him for. Jeremiah 29:11-13 says this:

“’ For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for me with all your heart.’”

I never thought that my depression and anxiety would be the stepping stone on this journey. What is it you are waiting and praying for? Are you struggling in the waiting? Keep praying (I haven’t had answers to some of my prayers yet) He will answer it in His timing with His best.
