“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Think about this, brethren: God already knows the outcome of the midterm elections and He is in complete control. He knows when He will tell His Son Jesus to go and get His bride. God is omniscient – HE KNOWS EVERYTHING.
He knows the outcome of the 2024 presidential election and if there will even be one that year. He foreknew the 2020 election and everything that followed. It did not take Him by surprise.
There are people who write to me asking why God is allowing this or that to happen. They are angry at Him because they cannot see the whole picture.
Back in 1983 when I met my Savior, a wise sister in Christ told me this:
“If you’ve ever seen a tapestry after it’s been completed – the back of it is unrecognizable as a ‘picture’ and before it is cleaned up, there are threads hanging from the back. To put it bluntly, it looks like a mess.
We get glimpses of history – the past and even the present. But we cannot see what will happen in the future, except by reading the Prophetic Word of God. But even then, we are limited in knowing the exact timing of these prophecies.
The front of the tapestry is a clear picture of what the artist intended to create. Now, think about this – History is much like that Tapestry. We can only see the back, but we are given glimpses of the past, and of course the time in which we live. But only God sees everything. We are caught in the threads of time.
As Creator of all there is, God sees the front of that Tapestry. Outside the constraints of time, God spoke the world and history into existence. He spoke through the Prophets of old, and through His people. Through the Holy Spirit, He used men to write His Words for us who know and Love Him.
Everything God does and allows to happen is trustworthy because He is Sovereign. He knows the end from the beginning.
HE IS GOD AND WE ARE NOT. He alone sees the front of the “Tapestry” because HE Created it.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows” (Matthew 10:29-31).
As this day progresses, and you cannot help but feel a bit anxious – read His Words of comfort and truth and assurance. Speak the name of Jesus to cast away your anxiety. I cannot tell the reader how many times I speak His name during times of uncertainty, and it brings me back into His arms.
Brethren, think on these words from our Heavenly Father:
“You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you Because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3).
“The LORD will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace” (Psalms 29:11).
“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we, through the patience and comfort of the scriptures, might have hope” (Romans 15:4).
“For with God, nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).
