Trust God to have His perfect way in your life.
I have looked for years for the understanding of why things happen the way they happen. It just appears at times that there is no reasonable explanation for why thins happen. The pain is unbearable or so it seems. The hurt is unsolicited and the disappointment is emotionally crushing. There seems to be no explanation and we somehow try to convince ourselves that we are supposed to be okay with that. I have come to accept that there are some things that are supposed to hurt.
As we accept the relationship with Christ and begin to walk with God we embark on a journey that is designed to develop our beings to be what He desires by promoting in us the characteristics that he wills to enable us to fulfill His purpose. He initially begins that process with discipline. That discipline is accomplished or performed in us by our obedience. In other words we learn his discipline by our acts of obedience. He said He desired obedience more than sacrifice. Don’t be confused. The act of sacrificing was being obedient. It wasn’t the sacrifice that caught His attention, it was the act of obedience.
There are two motivating factors that drive us. One is the fear of the consequences of His wrath. The other is the reward of His favor. Both are very powerful in their motivation. Both have their particular purpose. That purpose is to help guide us to become what God wants us to be. Allow Him to have His way in your life. He knows what is best. He knows what He wants of us and He knows how to establish in us what He desires.
His plans are sure and definitive. He makes no mistakes. He is the one who works all things together for our good. So allow Him to have is way in your life. He does things perfect and in order. Trust Him.
Man_Up and the man that God wants you to be.
