The Lord Knows How

 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment. II Peter 2:9

This is one of my favorite verses rip out of context. The context is God's deliverance of Lot from the fiery judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah. But, I like the four words in large text. I used too print them, laminate them, and give them out. People are often in situations where they don't know how to affect the best outcome. Take a doctor, for example, who may not know the best course of treatment for a patient. No problem. The Lord knows how. the simple acknowledgement of this fact can save us time and stress, because it encourages us to be done with self-reliance and get to God-reliance. The sooner we do this, the better.

Yes, the context is deliverance, not how to lower your golf score. But do this if you must: along with applying this to appropriate situations, realize that He engineers situations just to get us to turn to Him and claim his knowledge and resources. Or, just be like me -- accept the fact the He knows how to do every thing.
