THE MESSAGE

YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT GOD IS DOING IN YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW , BUT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND LATER.

***********************************************************************************************

1.PERCEPTION

The Lord is working in our lives all the time. Sometimes we may not understand what the Lord is doing in our lives. At such times we must simply trust the Lord and believe that He has a purpose in what He is doing . The Lord Jesus told Peter, while washing his feet ,that although Peter did not realise the significance of what Jesus was doing at that time, he would be able to understand it later. Sometimes we may also go through such experiences. Sometimes it may appear as though the Lord is not doing anything in our lives. At such times we must realise that God is always working in our lives , even though sometimes we may not be able to see it . Sometimes God works secretly and behind the scenes and He will reveal His work to us when the time is right. Job tried to see the work of God during his time of trial and he could not see it. Then he understood that even if he did not understand what has happening in his life, the Lord knew the path through which he was going and after his trial he would come forth as gold.

JOHN 13:7

" Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."

JOHN 5:17

" Jesus said to them, "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working."

JOB 23:8-10

"But if I go to the east, he is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find him.

When he is at work in the north, I do not see him; when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him.

But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. "

2.PROCESS

The Lord is working in our lives and makes everything work for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. The Lord even turns the evil intended to harm us into good. Sometimes we may not understand or enjoy the process He takes us through to fulfill his work in our lives. But later we will look back with gratitude and amazement at the process which God took us through to fulfill His plan for our lives. Joseph in the Old Testament went through a very difficult and painful process in his life. His brothers hated him and sold him as a slave to Egypt. He was greatly distressed at that moment and pleaded with his brothers to spare his life. But later in his life after the Lord had established him as a ruler over Egypt , Joseph realised the hand of God in his journey of life. He comforted his brothers and told them not to be distressed over selling him as a slave because it was the plan of God for his life.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

********************

ROMANS 8:28

" And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

GENESIS 50:20

" You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. "

GENESIS 42:21

" They said to one another, "Surely we are being punished because of our brother. We saw how distressed he was when he pleaded with us for his life, but we would not listen; that’s why this distress has come upon us."

GENESIS 45:4-8

" Then Joseph said to his brothers, "Come close to me." When they had done so, he said, "I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt!

And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.

For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will not be plowing and reaping.

But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

"So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt. "

3.PERSONALIZED

The Lord is working in our lives in a very personal way. The Lord has created each one of us in a unique way and He has a very special and specific plan for each one of us. Therefore the Lord works in each one of us in a different way according to the specific plan He has for us. We should not compare ourselves with others or be offended if God works in a different way in their lives. The Lord wants us to focus on His plan for our lives and we must strive to fulfill His destiny for our lives.
