God's Will, the Unexpected
Scripture: " I know what I'm doing, I have it all planned out --- plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." - Jeremiah 29:11 MSG
Quote: " God's promises are like stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine. - David Nicholas
As we grow in Christ, we learn that God is a God of all things possible. Some things we expect and some things we least expect. When He performs the expected, as far as, allowing us to see another day, or helping us make it through another month, it's natural to give him the highest praise. What happens when He brings on the unexpected; our praises are not so high then. Slowly we begin to doubt God's actions or decisions and forget that His will not OUR shall be done. Now, not all unexpected things that happens make us doubt. A lot of unexpected things brings people closer to God and give Him a praise He has never received before.
When we pray, God definitely hear our prayers, but at the end of the day He is going to do according to His will for us. Sometimes it turns out better than we expected. It takes a major strength to walk by faith and not by sight. I pray for that strength everyday because I know God is in control. Friends we have to let Abba do His work in our lives; for He knows better than we do. Let His promises be revealed through the unexpected.
Be blessed and let the love of God shine through you!!!!!
