The Marvelous Privilege of Trust! November 17 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My most wonderful child, who I am especially fond of and enjoy immensely,
I am providing for you and your family (which is My family) today and every day. Without your even being aware, I am continually working in other people and circumstances to bring about provisions for you that will come to you later… just when you need them!
I knew long ago what your needs for today would be. I am continually in the process of orchestrating events, opportunities and circumstances to work together for the results that I want.
All you can see is today and you tend to worry about tomorrow. You imagine bleak scenarios of lack, failure and embarrassment because of insufficient resources. When you imagine those situations and circumstances, you don’t include Me in the picture. I want you not to even go there in your mind because you will most likely worry about, be obsessed and depressed about something that will never happen!
I know that because I have already taken care of your provision for tomorrow. So please don’t make your time unfruitful by worrying about something that I have already taken care of! Since you can’t yet see how I have provided, you get the marvelous privilege of trusting Me and resting in My faith that all is well and I will provide.
It can be extremely helpful for you to keep a list of times and ways that I have provided for you in the past. Then when the deceiver/accuser tempts you to worry and not trust Me, you can review that list and remember all the myriad of ways that I have provided in the past… ways that you never imagined or expected that seemingly came out of the blue at just the exact time that you needed them.
Think about it now, you received unexpected provision through another one of My children on a certain day when you really needed it… but I was working in that other person’s life long prior to the actual day that you got the provision!
I’m doing the same today! I’m doing things in, with and for you today that will enable you to help provide for another of My children on certain days in the future. One day we’ll have a great time looking at and celebrating how I did all this. For you it will be like seeing a great movie with a wonderful ending… your provision!
Rest, relax, enjoy and trust Me today. I am so for you!
