Each time I read The Word, I am bowled over in the spirit! Before I was born God knew EXACTLY what He desired of me. Where I would be, what I would do, what would happen, what is/was and shall be.
How do I know this?
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but The Lord establishes their steps.” – Proverbs 16:9 NIV
“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, and ALL these things will be given unto you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble on its own.” – Matthew 6:31-34 NIV
Without much ado, have you committed your day into the hands of The LORD?
Let us step back in His-Story. Joseph -The story begins in Canaan – modern day Palestine, Syria and Israel – around 1600 to 1700 BC. Joseph was 11th of 12 sons of a wealthy nomad Jacob and his second wife Rachel. His story is told in the book of Genesis 37-50. Joseph was very much loved by Jacob because he had been born to him in his old age. Joseph was shown in a dream what would be IF he stayed the course. He did, and we see what became of him, Amen.
Samson? His way was known before he was born. Samson, Hebrew Shimshon, legendary Israelite warrior and judge, or divinely inspired leader, renowned for the prodigious strength that he derived from his uncut hair. He is portrayed in the biblical Book of Judges (chapters 13–16).
Samuel? Samuel, is born to Hannah, a previously barren woman. Hannah gives Samuel to Israel’s chief priest, Eli, to be raised as a Nazirite. The priesthood in Israel is in a general state of decline – God saw and Knew this, God gave Samuelto Hannah Knowing that she would hand him right back, for God Knew the condition of His House – Eli’s sons are disobeying God’s laws. Again, time is never a factor; What created ‘time.’
