You Know Better Than I


My 6 year old loves the movie “Joseph the King of Dreams;” It is about the life of Joseph in the Old Testament.  There is a song in the movie where Joseph realizes that God used so much of what he went thru to bring him to a wonderful place, a place where his life became a preservative for God’s people.   The song goes, “You know better than I – You know the way.”  Every time I hear that song it makes me think about how smart God is and how grateful I am that the Lord God is in charge of my life. 

The most wonderful things that the Lord has brought  into  my life I didn’t even know I needed.  Many years ago the Lord brought a wonderful man JP Timmons, into my life.  I had had a lot of sadness and loneliness in my life but I was content to love the Lord and be loved by Him. I thought that was my lot in life.  But just as the line in the song says, “You know better than I,” God knew what I needed more than I.  He brought this beautiful man of God into my life. God simply spoke to him and said, “Don’t be afraid this is the woman I have chosen for you.” And the Lord told me that He was not willing to wait till I got to Heaven to understand what unconditional love was, that He was answering a prayer I had prayed as a little girl when I asked Him to send someone to love me.

I didn’t know I needed Jesus till He showed Himself to me.  I didn’t know I needed my husband till God fill my heart with love for him.  I didn’t know I needed the children of our marriage till the Lord gave them to us.  Today, Valentine’s Day,  and our anniversary I am so thankful for the Lord and for the wonderful blessings He has brought into my life.

I leave you with this thought today; you can always trust God to know better than you.  Give Him all your life – don’t hold any part back.  Anything you hold back will not prosper, will not be a blessing.  No matter how bad you want something or don’t want to be in a situation you can trust Him to do what is best for you if you give it all to Him.  So many people never know this place of blessing and peace because they hold back areas of their life from Him.  He knows better than you – give your all to Him and watch it become a wonderful thing.
