The feeling when you’re able to turn your deepest sorrow into a great worship. The contentment you feel when you know that He is in control and that none of every tiny little things of your life happen without His approval. Not because of our power, but because of Him living inside of us.
We all have and have had our difficult moments. Conditions when we felt like everything is falling apart. Times when we had to make ourselves able to forgive people who hurted us and for some cases even had to be able to love them and share happiness with them afterward.
We often tried to digest the concept God explained to us about all of this and it doesn’t make any sense. But then we had no choice than to trust Him, because everything has failed and we never had that joy and peace inside of us no matter how hard we try. God put me in a condition where I had to surrender myself completely to Him quite sometime ago. I hated it. I was furious. Why? Why God?
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine” (Isaiah 55:8 NLT)
We can never understand what God has in mind for us. He is too almighty for you to understand what He is doing to you.
But then there’s this…
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” (2 Cor 4:17)
We often said that we believe God’s plan is bigger than ours. But do we really know what that means?
Well, it doesn’t mean we will have a smooth ride through whatever it is we may have to go through.
We may have to endure great obstacle and unbearable pain when we carry that cross.
His promises are true. We have to have such a huge faith to understand that the obstacle and the pain are part of His plan.
If you are experiencing a great torture of the world, don’t give in. Remember His plan for you. It’s for real.
We should be honored when what we do on a daily basis is an act of fulfilling His plan.
