What God Has Prepared For Us

What God Has Prepared For Us  

Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day.” Ruth 3:18

Yes, sit and calm down. What a good advice for those who have life from God, but yet their souls have no comfort. Those who strive, lost hope in finding comfort in their own efforts.

Trials and experience clarify our disability towards our lives. How many times we tried to straighten our ways in lives.

But the secret of the great blessing is that Our Lord and Redeemer considered our case as his own case. Knowing this lead us to think of God instead of thinking about ourselves. 
Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. Exodus 14: 13

We must let the Lord respond to the complainants, as did the sinful woman in John 8: 1-11

John 8:1 - 11

1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.

2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 

3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 

4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 

5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?”

6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 

8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 

9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 

10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

The prodigal son has been speculating with himself while on his way back to his father's house. We probably put the focus in the wrong place and speculating with ourselves while on our way back to the Father's house. As we stand in His presence we will notice that the Father holds a feast to celebrate our return. All we have to do is have faith in Him, and know that His plans for us will be greater than we can imagine, and then enjoy the ride.

Luke 15: 22 - 24

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 

23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;

24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.
