My picture didn't come through! What can you do? I say let's move ahead anyway! Life is too short to wait for everything to be just right! I will tell you that it was a picture of a delicious plate of heart shaped cookies with pink frosting that my daughter's friend spent a lot of time on.
"The Lord will go forth as a mighty man; He will stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies." Isaiah 42:6
Do we have any doubt that God will prevail over His enemies? No, we know that nothing can stand against Him. Do we wish for Him to come now, and destroy those who are bent on doing evil? Yes, I do. Do I know everything and am I able to keep everything under control? No, I have to admit, I would like to control everything, but I don't. Ugh!
How bad would it be if a mortal was in control of earth, the atmosphere, and all other things? I am SO glad that I don't have any say in that! So it would make sense for me to trust God that He will take care of His enemies at the appropriate time? Yes, it would. And I do trust Him, sometimes I just wish he would hurry up and do what I know He wants to.
His timing is perfect, and I need to relax, because for all of the things we know, we don't really know. His perspective is is for our good, and He also is interested in others coming to salvation. So He waits, and we pray, and He hears and He answers!
