Day 110 Recovery Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”
“The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him.”
Psalms 25:14 KJV
There are many things we will not fully understand just as there are certain secrets of God’s dealings and providence He allows His children to slowly uncover. Sometimes, His dealings with them appear to be harsh, hidden and confusing. Yet, faith looks deeper and says, “This is God’s secret. You are looking only on the outside, but I (God) look deeper and see the hidden meaning.”
Remember, diamonds are found in the rough and their true value cannot be seen. The pearl is found inside the unattractive and tough shell of the oyster. When the tabernacle was first built in the wilderness, there was nothing ornate about its outward appearance.
Dear beloved, God may send you some valuable gift wrapped in unattractive paper. But do not worry about the wrappings, for you can be sure that inside He has hidden treasures of love, kindness and wisdom.
If we will simply take what He sends and trust Him for what is inside, we will learn the meaning of the secrets of His providence, even in times of darkness.
A person who has Christ as his Master is the master of every circumstance.
Is the situation or circumstances you find yourself in causing you to question God’s heart and love toward you and making you to RESIST His perfect will and purposes?
Be still and know that He is God! May His Grace and mercies be upon us.
