God fills the gaps

During my morning prayer, I was contemplating some future plans. I became increasingly aware that God was filling the gaps or space of my plan.  My human vision of things could only take me so far. Psalm 116 says, “the Lord has dealt bountifully with you”.  This tells me that love, peace, health, harmony and blessings are filling the parts that I can’t foresee.

 

Though human outlines or plans can be helpful, they are in and of themselves limited.  Isn’t it wonderful to know that God’s will for us is bounty? God has abundance, health, grace, companionship, and love planned for each of us. And this isn’t just a future plan that God has, but is actually His will that He is enforcing right now.

 

You know the London saying “mind the gap”; how about saying “God fills the gaps”? I like to make acronyms as a way to help me to see concepts more spiritually. I’ve been thinking about “G.A.P.” as “God’s Apparent Provision”.  What is an acronym that you came up with for “gap” or some other concept?

 

We can recognize God’s spiritual substance – His provision of health, happiness, freedom and abundance, filling all space so there really are no gaps!

 

So just remember while our human outlines and goals have all sorts of unforeseen circumstances, God is like the Rain-X (glass treatment) of our lives – He fills all the space in whatever human goal we may have. He foresees every need and circumstance; He gives us with relationships that mutually bless; His will is success and abundance for His creation; His love wraps up each individual and all.
