God is Orchestrating The Events of Your Life

Do you believe that God is orchestrating the events of your life?

I have a friend who recently asked her daughter that question. She had auditioned for a part in a community theater musical and when the cast list was posted her name was not on it. She was very disappointed and upset. My friend told her daughter, “If you really believe that God is orchestrating the events of your life then you can know that this wasn’t His plan for you right now.”

Several times recently I’ve been reminded of this truth in my own life. There’s a verse that God brought to my attention the other day that I want to share with you. It’s Acts 17:26 which says, “From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.” Talk about orchestrating events! God has determined the time set for you and I to live and the exact place where we should live. He orchestrates the events of our lives. He leads and guides His children in His plans as He closes doors that He does not want us to go through and opens others for us to clearly walk through. What an encouragement!

We can apply this truth, not only to the big events in our lives but also to the moments of everyday. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your path.”

After a recent Sunday morning service, where the Holy Spirit had moved hearts in a mighty way, a friend asked me if the pastor and I had talked before the service and planned the music to go along with the message. I told him no – that was completely the orchestration of the Holy Spirit. I prayerfully chose the music for the service earlier in the week, asking the Lord to guide my mind and heart to the right music for this upcoming worship service. The Lord had plans for that service, the Holy Spirit breathed into those songs as we worshiped and He worked in a might way. God had orchestrated the events.

Seek the Lord. Ask Him to give you God-directed days and keep you in tune with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He, who is familiar with all our ways, goes with us wherever we go, hemming us in behind and before, guiding us with His hand. He guides us in His plans, orchestrating the events of our lives, whether it’s big events like where you live, where you work, and what you will accomplish, or everyday decisions such as choosing the song you’ll sing in an upcoming worship service. Praise the Lord!

If you’d like to sing about this truth, there’s a sweet song, Where He Leads Me  by Twila Paris. If we truly believe that our loving Father is orchestrating the events of our lives then we can follow His leading with reckless abandonment because we know we can trust Him.
