How many of us have made a decision believing it to be God’s will, only to have the wheels come off somewhere down the road?
Perhaps God told you to move across the country for your husband’s job opportunity, but then the moment you get there, the company goes out of business and the job is lost. Hear me when I say this: God’s will doesn’t need temporal things like success, personal happiness, and good results to confirm that our decision was in line with God’s will.
Do you ever wonder if some of that is by God’s design?
Don’t miss what God is doing in your life because you think it’s supposed to look differently.
Maybe your marriage was on shaky ground during this time, and a job loss was what drew you and your husband together to restore your marriage back to a solid foundation. Or perhaps the job loss was the prompting for your husband to now step into God’s special purpose for your family of starting his own company with God’s favor and blessing all over it. Had the job not been lost, perhaps fear would have kept him in a secure job rather than his unique purpose.
What God is doing in your life may not always look the way you expect it to, but God is always working behind the scenes. He is still doing things in your life even if it looks different than what you expected. Jesus promises this in John 5:17, “My Father is always working, and so am I.” Just because you don’t see it, He never stops working.
