Have you ever been kept out of the loop on something? If you watch TV or movies you have heard people use the term, “Need to know.” It is commonly used in the CIA, the FBI, and government meetings. Most everyone has had times where they ask about something they were not told about only to be informed, “It is on a need to know basis.” Nobody likes that answer, but it happens every day. I got news for you, God’s will is on a need to know basis. He reveals himself and His perfect will when the time is right…not a minute before…and not a minute after.
1 Corinthians 13:12 says it best: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then, face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
When we pass from this world, we will finally understand, but here is some great news: as we draw closer to God, He reveals more and more of Himself to us! It is still in His timing, but we can have a much deeper understanding of God and His will for our lives is we are willing to submit ourselves totally to Him. When we draw closer to Him, our faith supernaturally becomes stronger.
If you are struggling with understanding God’s will for your life, make a commitment to God and see what happens. God will give you the ability to see into His world and see your life and people around you as He does. That changes everything! That is true perspective, that is true peace, and THAT is something you need to know!
