Hey guys,

Crazy busy time right now?!  I know.  I had to have foot surgery this past week which forced me to slow down and it was pretty agonizing having to just sit around and do nothing for five days straight.  Too much to do and so little time right?!

Anyway, a great chance for you to slow down and take break is going to College Camp May 21-23.  You need to get registered ASAP.  We extended the registration deadline to May 10th, which is this MONDAY!!!!  So get your registrations in!

Here’s a devo from Mariya:

Knowledge

by Mariya Jones

Recently, I was talking with a friend about answers in life and how we can’t know everything right now. I said that the answers are not obvious to us all the time and sometimes, we can’t know the answers to our most burning questions until we go to heaven. We know that when that glorious day comes and we are in heaven with our Father, we will have all knowledge and understanding. 1 Corinthians 13:12

“Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”

When we meet our Maker face to face, we will have all the answers. I don’t think it will necessarily be God telling us everything we need to know or even us knowing everything. I think it will be a peace that we don’t need all the answers and just having an understanding. Only God has all the answers and we must trust Him to take care of us. Matthew 11:25

“At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.’”

Knowing all of life’s truths or answers isn’t healthy for our faith. In order to trust God fully, we must lean on Him for understanding. If we understand everything, there wouldn’t be a reason for Him! Just like Job had to trust God after his life seemingly fell apart, we must trust God to keep us afloat in the storms of our lives. We must understand that no matter how hard it gets, God will be our solid rock because he is the one with all the knowledge. Like my Bible’s footnotes say, “To be unshakable, faith must be built on the confidence that God’s ultimate purpose will come to pass.” Sometimes we might not understand what God is doing in our lives until we look back and say, “Huh. So that’s what God was doing and shaping me for during all of that.”

God promises a knowledge when we believe and trust in Him with all our hearts. But the full knowledge will not come until we are united with Him in heaven. What a great feeling we will have then! So this week think about what you have been longing to know or understand and ask God to take that from you. When you are feeling really burdened, give it to God and fully trust that He will take care of it.

Have a blessed day.  Praying for you!

To the King!
