Exodus 12:40-41 -- On Long-Term Plans

"Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt."
Exodus 12:40-41

This is a good reminder that God has a plan for all of us, both individually and as communities and peoples and worlds. :)  We can't always see his bigger plans working, because we experience just a small part of them.  That means, in order to be a part of them, we have to trust God, and rely on his guidance to let us know what we should do.  This, in turn, means that we have to learn to be sensitive to the spirit, so that we will hear what God has to say, and also so that we won't misinterpret what he is saying.

Today, let's remember that God's timing is perfect, and so is his plan... even when it is bigger than we are and we can't understand how it is working, it IS working, and God's plan is going forward to help us and save as many people as will listen and come to him.  Let's be some of those people.
