Whatever God puts onto your heart, He will bring it to pass. Therefore, there’s no need to be rushing things. He may even have a much better plan ahead for you, in addition to what He has put in your heart. A plan that no human heart has ever conceived.
Moses had longed to see his brothers and sisters set free from slavery. God in Christ had in plan to set them free from their fear of death, in addition to human slavery.
In the end, it will always be to God’s glory in Christ Jesus. It will always be about knowing Him in Jesus, His Christ, our Lord.
“From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said:
“In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.
From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.
You hurled me into the depths, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.
I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’
The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.
To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, Lord my God, brought my life up from the pit. When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.
But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you.
What I have vowed I will make good.
I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”
And the Lord commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land.” (Jonah 2)
Don’t we worry about a thing. Since God had brought the cross to pass, there’s nothing too small or too big or too common for God to bring to pass.
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.” (Romans 8:32-33)
God always makes way wherever seems to be no way.
His way is Jesus, His Christ, our Lord, our God who has helped us to know God, His Father, our Father by grace through faith in Him.
Things that I was used to folly after, things that I was used to lose sleep over, I, in my lifetime, have seen God bring them to pass like the wind when I had totally forgotten about them.
Since God has put it, whatever it is, onto your heart, He will bring it to pass in Christ Jesus, like everything else He had already secured for you and I in His Son.
Jonah prayed and gave praise to God while inside a fish. His last words then were, “Salvation comes from the Lord.” He was more than ready to face whatever may follow, even death. Yet, God gave him then life by causing the fish to vomit him, something Jonah wasn’t truly looking forward to even after he had asked for it.
As Paul once shared by grace,
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who i have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” (Romans 26:30)
Others may be passing you for opportunities, considerations or favors that you think you well deserve, but it is God who justifies. As the Supreme Judge, His mercy renews every morning. As the Supreme Father, His love never ends.
Relax and rejoice as much as you can by the grace of God, His Spirit living in you through Christ, Jesus, your Lord, my Lord. He will bring it to pass and more. Amen.
