36/100 #SoWillI #Inspired
One of my aunties recently told me that taking care a baby while still managing the home, full time, qualifies me to apply for an operations manager position. I laughed it off but this morning I am thinking about it. Every weekend I plan for my ten-month-old son’s meals, I literally write down what is needed and have an idea of the meals he will have for the entire week plus in between snacks. I make sure there’s always something for him to eat, when need arises. Bu guess what? He still wails and cries when hungry. He has no idea that the freezer is full of his food, and that his dad makes sure the house has enough fruits and snacks. He has no idea that his needs have already been anticipated and planned for.
Sometimes as I prepare his food, he gets impatient and grabs the plate or hangs onto the blender (insert that exhausted emoji) This slows me down, I sometimes address him even when I know he does not understand. ‘Young man, the more you wail, the more your food takes time’ But even the wailing does not stop me from feeding him and giving him the best: Because I love him.
I know you know where I am going with this. God knows your needs, He created everything first before creating man because He knew, day and night have to come first, he will need water, he will need food, he will need light, he will need the trees and the seas. Before creating Adam and Eve, the garden was there. Before He created you, He knew you and made plans for you. So you are crying because you are not aware that the freezer is stocked. He knows exactly what you need for this season and exactly how He will supply. Your wailing and crying doesn’t slow Him down or stop Him from providing for you. Instead it drains you, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?” (Matthew 6:27)
We cry and wail many times, because we cannot see the freezer, we are not aware and we do not understand. But God encourages us in His word not to worry, not to be dismayed, He has good plans for us, plans to give us a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) He encourages us to walk by faith; be assured of things we hope for and be convicted of the unseen. (Hebrews 11:1) He knows what you need before you even ask, He already anticipated what you will need before creating you in your mother’s womb. (Matthew 6:8)
Today I pray that God will open our inner eyes to see and know that He knows our every need. That we will keep trusting in Him and fixing our eyes on Him: Even when we cannot see the fridge.
