God Is at Work Behind the Scenes
God is at work behind the scenes. In the world and in your life. No matter what is going on. God is in control and God is at work for you, in you, through you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.] (John 14:27, AMP)
God has not forgotten you. Rest in God and focus on getting to know him better. Then you are ready when you need to be ready. Then you hear his voice when he is leading you to something new.
I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.
(Isaiah 42:16, NIV)
Even when things are unclear to us, things are clear to God. Our hope is not in our own understanding but in God Almighty. When you don’t know what to do, pray. God knows your situation and will guide you step by step. It is always wise to turn to God. When you walk with God, you can’t go wrong.
Hence it is always time to praise God.
Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
(Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV)
You are truly amazing.
Thank you for taking care of us.
Thank you for working for us.
Thank you for guiding us
even when we don’t have a clue.
We want to be all yours.
Fill us with your Spirit,
your hope, your joy
so that we can’t but
praise your holy name
all the days of our lives.
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Do you trust God to take care of you even when things look unclear to you? What does help you in the process?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you praise God for being at work behind the scenes!

Love this truth that God is at work behind the scenes! We can’t even begin to imagine all that he has in store for us. It’s so exciting to be a child of the King.
You are my soul sister, Lisa. 🙂 Thank you for being you and shining for Jesus! Blessings upon blessings!
Hi, Mari-Anna! It’s so nice to “meet” you here. 🙂 I’m stopping by from Tell His Story tonight. You have no idea how timely this devotion is for me. My husband is a pastor and we’ve been going through a tough time in ministry. I find so much comfort in knowing that God goes before us and He will make the path clear! Thanks. 🙂
