It is so difficult for those of us who are impatient to see the hand of God in timing. I asked God to grow Overcomers at a rate with which I could keep up. He did that, yet I complained that it wasn’t fast enough. It always takes the perspective of another or others to help piece things together.
Tonight, I had dinner with the man I would call my right hand at church. God has gifted him in ways I lack. That’s how the body of Christ works. We discussed how our core families have been through different hardships, and Overcomers could not go to the next level without these hardships. In fact, our bond of unity is stronger now than it has ever been. I give God all the glory. I could not manufacture that. All of this came about when the enemy wanted to destroy what God has done.
Babbie Mason wrote these lyrics that I believe beautifully encapsulate the truth from Ecclesiastes 3 which says that God makes all things beautiful in its time. The song says, “God is too wise to be mistaken. God is too good to be unkind. When you don’t understand, when you can’t see His plan, when you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart.” He knows what is best for you. He loves you that much!
