I was listening…ok eavesdropping…on a conversation last week. Not purposely but people shouldn’t talk so loud…lol. Anyway…this man was saying that he knows that God is going to take care of him and that he keeps studying the word and working for God but he just doesn’t understand why he can’t catch a break. Now I’ll be the first to say that I just don’t understand why so many bad things happen and why some people’s lives seem so much harder than others. But what I do know is that if you place your complete trust and faith in God, then regardless of your circumstance, something good will come from it. Problem is that it also sometimes takes complete faith to see the good after the storm because, thanks to Satan, we tend to dwell on the bad. Now as far as trying to catch a break…maybe that is the problem. We must learn to give God all the glory without expecting anything in return. We know He is going to take care of us because His Word tells us that. But we must accept Him and honor Him simply because we love Him and we want to, and stop saying, “look what I’ve done for you….now what are you going to so for me?” because the fact is, He has already done everything for us.
See the birds of the sky, that they don’t sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you of much more value than they? Matthew 6:26World English Bible (WEB)
