Arrow Following Gods Schedule

Following God's Schedule
Romans 11:33-36
Most of us enjoy feeling in control of our own schedule and grow frustrated when things don't go according to plan. Yet if we truly desire to walk in the center of God's perfect will, we must become willing to cooperate with His time frame.
Consider how you pray about situations in your life. Without realizing it, you may be demanding that God follow the schedule you've constructed according to your very limited human wisdom. Yet if we believe He is who He says He is, how can surrendering to His way not be to our benefit? Think about His unique, praiseworthy qualities:
His all-encompassing knowledge. Unlike us, the Lord has complete awareness about our world and the details of every individual life--past, present, and future.
His complete wisdom. God understands man's every motive, whereas none of us are able to accurately discern people's intentions. We make choices based on partial information, whereas He has the wisdom to take action based on truth.
His unconditional love. Our Creator is always motivated by love and constantly has our best in mind. Unless we trust His heart, our view of reality will be distorted.
His perfect sufficiency. At just the right time, God will provide us with everything we need to carry out His plan.
Submitting to God's timetable requires faith and courage. Believe in the goodness of His heart and His plans--and determine to wait until He gives the signal to move forward. Then, as you follow His schedule, you'll experience the joy of watching Him make all things beautiful in His timing.

God revealed this truth to me one terrible night when I was at my weakest point. I'll never forget feeling of realizing that GOD IS IN CONTROL and to just let go! I woke up the next morning feeling like a new person.

To this day, I live my life by a single motto that has worked wonders for me ...

Don't sweat the small stuff, God is in control. In 20 years, it wont matter.

It took me a few years, but when I find myself feeling like things are spooling out of control, I just go and let things work themselves out. I pray for guidance, and let go. God always fixes problems, one way or another, God fixes them. Our job is to get out of the way and live for HIM!

GOD IS GOOD!
