It seems to me that in our society we are so selfish.
Well look around you… people with habits that are harming people and the reason they’re not giving it up is because “It’s MY life…” . Everything from smoking, drinking, swearing… the list goes on.
And we wonder why life seems so much like we’re going through the motions.
But it seems to me that God has a GREATER plan for us than just “going through the motions”
In Psalm 139 it says that:
16. Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
The bad new is the road with the most to loose is the road where ‘in this world’ we seem to gain the most (money, things, luxuries etc…)
And the road where we gain the most we loose the most here… We give our lives to Christ.
OK so why would I go on the road to gain if I have to get uncomfortable? – the answer is because wouldn’t you want to be on a road that your creator planned for you… or would you prefer a road that you meander your way through without GPS not knowing what dangers lie ahead?
The great news is when you trust in God you give HIM the control… all you need to do is trust in him and be obedient
it’s not going to be easy…
there will be hard times…
But that’s how God seems to work… he blesses us in those times of trouble so when we’re out of the dark place we can look back from the new peak we’ve climbed and know that God was there the whole time.
“surely goodness and mercy will follow me ALL the days of my life”
It doesn’t make sense… but our God is a good God.
