God at Work

God is kind to us. He is at work in our lives when we do not realize it. Today I read about the angels God sent to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19. In verse 16 we hear the angels took Lot and his family by the hand because they were hesitant to leave. The writer tells us it was an act of kindness by God.

In a very different scenario, a friend of mine had surgery to remove cancer in a kidney yesterday. The doctors only found the cancer because they were doing a scan to find out the reason for the man's lower back pain. There were bones spurs and other problems causing the back pain, but the tests revealed a much more serious problem in the cancer. This morning he is cancer free because his back pain led to the discovery.

Never think that God is not working in your life. Our job is not to doubt, but to try to trace the work of His loving hand.

You can definitely see God's hand in this situation. We experienced the same in 2002.

First of all why were you up and functioning at 421 am? Secondly, thank you for the thoughts. It is true that we do not understand or know of the plans of God. Trust and obey, for there is no other way.
