His Omnipresence Revealed!!!
When I say that nothing is by happenstance with God, this is true. Let me confirm this.
As a young woman growing up, the Spirit impressed upon me early, how to implement opportunities.
I felt as if everything is for a reason and no job or skill was too menial. Especially when all fortuity is ordained by Him. “Who [with reason] despises the day of small things (beginnings)? For these seven [eyes] shall rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD which roam throughout the earth (Zechariah 4: 10, AMP).
Even in this present time when my flesh wants to do the bare minimum. Feeling so inconvenienced with repeated redundancies. I am even more convinced that it all works for my good.
My thinking is renewed. Knowing that God wastes nothing!!!
Nothing Is Wasted with God
I recently read an article from Jimandjaneen.com called, “Nothing Is Wasted with God”. In it they tell of the boy who provided the five loaves and the fish. Jesus multiplied his offering to feed the multitude that one disciple stated would take more than a half years wages to give just one bite to each individual. But Jesus provided.
In the end not only was everyone filled and satisfied. But the scraps were collected at His command. And as they thoughtfully equated. The blessing from the boy was magnified and returned to him. Jesus wastes nothing!
Let me verify His grace and mercy. In the book of Malachi, the last in the Old Testament. It is written, “‘Bring me all the tithes (the tenth) into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house, and test Me now in this’, says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour you out [so great] a blessing until there is no more room to receive it. Then I will rebuke the devourer (insects, plague) for your sake, and he will not destroy your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field,’ saith the LORD of hosts (Malachi 3: 10-11, AMP).
One of the commands that God required of us. Closing out the end of the Old Testament. Many don’t realize how powerful this Word was meant to be. Hunger would be obliterated throughout the world. Because God wastes nothing.
You Meant Evil Against Me
Remember when the LORD saved Joseph from the pit that his brothers threw him in. They despised him and would have murdered him. He was even cast into prison for a crime that he did not commit. But through it all God wastes nothing. The confirmation. “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present outcome, that many people would be kept alive [as they are this day], Genesis 50: 20, AMP).
King David waited over 20 years after he was anointed to be king over Israel before it was finally made manifest. During and even after he was constantly afflicted but never doubted God’s Word.
At the end of his life, David blessed the LORD. Knowing that everything comes from God. And just like Joseph, showing that there is always a bigger picture in Him.
“Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all. In Your hand is power and might; and it is in Your hands to make great and to give strength to everyone”, 1 Chronicles 29: 12, AMP.
Did you get that. God provides for us all. Not just for a select few. This is why it is written, “For He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust” Matthew 5: 45b, AMP).
His Thoughts are Toward Everyone
Today and every day I enter into the LORD’s presence. And with a supernatural eye, I am able to see that he is truly omnipresent. His provisions have heavenly favor. I know and see that our steps are ordered by Him when we walk according to His Will. “The steps of a [good and righteous] man are directed and established by the LORD, and He delights in his way [and blesses his path]. When he falls, he will not be hurled down, because the LORD is the One who holds his hand and sustains him (Psalm 37: 23-24, AMP).
So, I will close with this. In my flesh I may feel as if I am not where I want to be. But I trust Him. God is continually working a work in us. “For from days of old no one has heard, nor has ear perceived, nor has eye seen a God besides You, who works and acts on behalf of the one who [gladly] waits for Him” (Isaiah 64: 4, AMP).
Each day I am learning to trust Him more. And it is so obvious and instant when I am obedient to the Spirit’s guidance.
Nothing that we go through in life, no trial or tribulation, is for nought. I know we don’t like to be told that “everything happens for a reason”. But it is true. God wastes nothing.
Your Future Was Already Planned and Established
“‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you’ saith the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope’ (Jeremiah 29: 11, AMP).
As always, I thank the Holy Spirit because this is of Him. But I also want to thank Mr. RC Blakes, Jr. for one of his teaching’s entitled, “God Blocked It!”. This resonates with me.
Always coming from a place of love!!! God wastes nothing!
“I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well” (Psalms 139: 14, AMP).
