This isn’t one of the topics I mentioned in my previous post, but I just have to document what I experienced this morning during my prayer time.
I was overwhelmed by the realization that God knows me so well. He knows every need that matters and every want that doesn’t. He knows exactly what, in the scheme of things, are urgent and important. He knows when to shower me with blessings and when to hold back; when to immediately answer my petitions, and when to make me wait. He knows when a No is better than a Yes, and when my plans will veer me away from His plans which are always bigger and better and perfect.
I’m joyful that I’m under the shelter of a God like Him. I’m glad that He knows me better than I know myself especially because there are times when I don’t trust me to know myself that well. I’m happy that I’ve learned to be content, to have an eternal perspective that helps me decide what to prioritize, and to have an unbounded faith that I am where God wants me to be.
In my late 20s, a wise man told me that success is being at the center of God’s will. I’m starting to see how true that is right now. If I may add, happiness is found in being able to respond freely to God’s will. I’m glad that at this point in my life, my circumstances allow me to experience that freedom. Realizing this, my heart is filled with gratefulness towards a God who loves me more than I love myself. Therefore, I rest secure in the thought that I’m following a God in whom all things hold together.
