Recently we had to make a very tough decision after which i was taxed to deliver it to the appropriate authority. I spent so much time wondering how it would turn out. The response i would receive from the recipient and its long term repercussion, if any. “Paying interest on a debt you may never owe”.
I wasted much time dreading the encounter, however, this morning as i did the necessary, it lasted just half hour and the problem had been acted upon, peacefully.
This isn’t the first big issue i have had in life and spent so much time debating within myself. Considering all the worst and best case scenarios and the outcome thereafter. Naturally i tend to waste time over issues i consider big, yet after all is said and done, the storm passes without much ado. Somehow things just fall in place or sort themselves out…or so i thought until i got a different revelation from this scripture today.
The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD. Proverbs 16:33
I realized that however much time you spend worrying on a problem you may have that may cost you sleep, cause you anxiety, the decision is wholly of the Lord and is ordered by Him. You may struggle with a decision or a problem for long but ideally, the result of it is in the hands of God. In other words, nothing is accidental.
Many seek the ruler’s favor, But justice for man comes from the LORD. Proverbs 29:26
My prayer this evening is that God increases my faith that am able to hand my small and big issues to Him from now henceforth. Amen.
