Working Behind The Scenes

Yesterday, I wrote that God sometimes works in secret. In Psalm 139:15-16, the psalmist wrote that long before his actual appearance in this world, he was being formed in secret by God: "My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret intricately and curiously wrought in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days of my life were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them."

Just look at King David in the Bible. David didn't make his appearance as king of Israel until the Lord determined the time was right. In this same way, God will bring His perfect work in us when He knows everything is right for us. Our God is a working God. Jesus said in John 5:17, "My Father has worked until now, and I, too, must be at work." God is at work in your life and my life and in our present situation if we believe He is as it says in Matthew 9:29, "According to your faith be it unto you."

We must refuse to worry and rest safely away and secure under the shadow of His wings. Even though it may seem God is doing nothing, He is secretly working behind the scenes. We may not be able to hear it or hear it, but we can accept it by faith.

Barbie, I enjoyed reading your blog on Aug.7th Also enjoy seeing you on television every day. What a witness you are! My favorite chapter in the old testament is Psalm 91, especially the part about "resting in the shadow of the almighty". Keep up the good work and know that you touch more people than you will ever know.
