Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 7 September 2019 – God In Circumstances
I shall come to you.
Recommended Reading: Romans 15:22-33
At the end of his letter to the Romans, Paul laid out his plans. He intended to launch a fourth missionary journey and press further than ever—all the way to Spain. He told the Romans he would visit them on the way. But things didn’t work out as Paul planned. Arriving in Jerusalem, Paul was arrested, and he occupied a cell in Caesarea for two years. When he finally arrived in Rome, it wasn’t as a missionary headed to Spain, but as a prisoner headed to trial (see Acts 28). Yet the Lord was in it all.
Just like Paul, we should be planning for the future and doing the best we can to wisely manage the days to come. But God is still the Lord of the circumstances, and when things don’t go as we had hoped or planned, it’s our responsibility to say, “Well, dear Lord, do as You will.”
That is CLEARLY the best attitude to take in any situation.
God’s answers to life’s questions are not just proven by the process of abstract reasoning; they are also sustained by the rigors of experience.
