We all have our own individual stories. We all have a story to tell about our lives. Your story is different from mine and let’s remember that we all truly are part of GOD’S eternal story.
PSALM 16: 11 “YOU REVEAL THE PATH OF LIFE TO ME; IN YOUR PRESENCE IS ABUNDANT JOY; AT YOUR RIGHT HAND ARE ETERNAL PLEASURES.”
Recently my story has taken a turn, unexpected, possibly difficult and the unknown right now seems like an abyss I am staring into. Life is like that, especially when trials and difficulties come upon us and we are faced with decisions and fully at the end of ourselves. We can’t know now, GOD’S full story for ourselves…….
THERE IS ANOTHER STORY HAPPENING BEYOND YOUR STORY.
EPHESIANS 1: 18-19 “I PRAY THAT THE EYES OF YOUR HEART MAY BE ENLIGHTENED SO THAT YOU MAY KNOW WHAT IS THE HOPE OF HIS CALLING, WHAT IS THE WEALTH OF HIS GLORIOUS INHERITANCE IN THE SAINTS AND WHAT IS THE IMMEASURABLE GREATNESS OF HIS POWER TOWARD US WHO BELIEVE, ACCORDING TO THE MIGHTY WORKING OF HIS STRENGTH.”
We can hope in the LORD, understand HIS power and strength, but none of us know the future that HIS hand is upon and no one, no one, is guaranteed tomorrow.
GOD HAS PLACED US SECURELY IN HIS STORY OF ETERNITY BEING LIVED OUT RIGHT NOW.
So our individual stories are right in the midst of GOD’S forever story. GOD has dominion over all stories as HE chooses. That is why your story is different from mine.
NO ONE KNOWS ALL OF GOD’S STORY EXCEPT GOD!
PSALM 90: 2 “BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BORN, BEFORE YOU GAVE BIRTH TO THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM ETERNITY TO ETERNITY, YOU ARE GOD.”
Yes, HE is GOD, the glorious ONE and we are not! HE knows the full story, we do not! Are we ok with not knowing?
In spite of what we may think……GOD has not lost control of HIS creation. It fully is HIS story. And it has a purpose. When HE opens our eyes, it is up to us to learn how to live in HIS story by studying HIS word and HIS wisdom. We crave and learn to live for HIM! When we gaze and take a meaningful look at GOD’S story, we will see HIS immeasurable greatness and power and unlimited love for us. What a comfort to know HE has it all under control!
In spite of your story, rest dear one in HIS…….because it is one to stand upon. HIS story is the ROCK, the CORNERSTONE of our lives. And it is wonderfully, and completely eternal!
ISAIAH 28: 16 “BEHOLD, I AM LAYING A STONE IN ZION, A TESTED STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNERSTONE FOR THE FOUNDATION, FIRMLY PLACED. THE ONE WHO BELIEVES IN IT WILL NOT BE DISTURBED.”
