But God

God said, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another…” John 13: 34. But God you don’t understand, if you had seen what they did to me you would know why I don’t love them.

The omnipotent all powerful God said, I was with you. You were not at Calvary, if you had seen what they did to my Son you could not have understood why love so great was expressed, and how He could pray, “Father forgive them….”

God said, “… be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4: 32. “But God, you don’t understand, if you had heard what they said about me you would understand why I feel harshly toward them.”

The omniscient, all knowing God said, “I heard what they said. You were not at the mock trial of my Son when they profaned Him, mocked, and ridiculed Him you could not have understood why I forgave them.”

God said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you…” Hebrews 13: 5. “But God, you don’t understand what it’s like to feel so all alone.”

The omnipresent, all present God said, “I know how you rely on feelings rather than facts.  You were not in Gethsemane with my Son or you would know what being all alone is really like.”

God is ever present with you,“If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there” Psalm 139: 8.

God is more than equal to any adversity you have. “Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear” Isaiah 59:1.

God even knows your thoughts. “God already knows our deepest thoughts” Romans 8: 27.

He is all present, all knowing, and all powerful. Add to that “God is love…” I John 4: 8.

His promise to Jeremiah is relevant in your life, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29: 11. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

If the all present, all knowing, all powerful, all loving God has a plan for you, what flaw could there be in His plan? Why not commit to Him and in loving response resolve to obey Him? It is for your good to do so.

“Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him…”
Psalms 37: 5 – 7.

The NLT version reads, “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and He will help you.” That is a simple act with profound results.
