‘Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ’ (Philippians 1:6, KJV).
In life we don’t know what important unplanned events we will face, so we always need to adopt a somewhat flexible approach. However we know that mentally this is not as easy as it sounds.
Who likes to be delayed? Who likes to rearrange their plans? But in life, we many times face things that delay us from what we originally intended to do. We desire stability and control of our lives, and it is not easy to accept that we don’t understand or have the answers for many things that happen around us. Delays are a reminder that we can’t predict our outcomes. Delays sometimes cause us to have to divert our attention to other things. But it is reassuring that we can depend on God who knows the future. God gives us the courage to deal with the challenges that are created from changes.
With all that has been happening these days, many people’s schedules and plans have been affected. It is a time of great uncertainty, and there are critical things to address at the current time.
Though we don’t know the future, there are still somethings that we can do now. It is important that we be responsible in how we deal with the unexpected health crisis and not add to the already difficult situation.
It is reassuring to remember that, irrespective of what we go through, God who created the world has not forgotten us. God will finish the work that He has started in each of us.
