Job 23:10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. ~ God knows how to bring us to the expected end that he has for our lives. He knows how to speak to each one of us in a way that we can hear and in a way that we can be changed and encounter his goodness. He knows the things we will face and the needs we will have. He’s already been to our tomorrows to provide for us, to keep us, and to preserve us.

I think about the account of Hagar and Ishmael (Gen 21) being sent away from Abraham. They found themselves in the wilderness when all hope was lost and the only thing that seemed possible was their death but God spoke to Hagar and then opened her eyes to see the provision that was already there. There is no place in life that we go where God has not already made provision. Sometimes we can’t see it, but when we fix our eyes on The Lord and put our trust in him, God will open our eyes to see the provision that he’s already made. We can have confidence in his faithfulness, his love, and his caring nature that he has towards his people. It doesn’t matter where you are today, if you will look unto him to lead you and direct you, he will bring you to the provision he has made for you before you ever got to where you are. He is faithful.
