No Matter What It Looks Like Now
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." 1 Corinthians 2:9
As we go through life things do not always go the way we want them to go, or the way we thought they should go. As a matter of fact there are times when things go totally the opposite of how we planned. Circumstances and situations that arise in our lives can cause us to change plans mid -stream, and it is then that we realize we are not in control, but God is.
Don't Fall Into Temptation
"Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man" James 1:13
In the times that we live in this world there are a lot of things that can draw us away from God. When we have made up our minds to do the things God has told us to do, and something happens and before we know it we are doing the very opposite. When we go through these times of doing the opposite of what God wants us to do there can be times when we blame God for the things we do.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23
We have all come to a place where we knew we needed a change in our lives. It doesn't matter if we were brought up in the Church and have been going to Church all of our lives we have all had a time where Church nor God was not the most important thing to us. There were times when Church and God seemed to be irrelevant in our lives and we could live our lives on our own and do just fine.
"I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him." Ecclesiastes 3:14
There are some things in our lives that are not meant to last forever. There are some friendships we may of had while growing up, but we no longer have those same friendships, because they were not meant to last forever. There are some people who are in our lives for only a season. There are even some things we may go through and some storms we may have to weather, but they are not going to last forever.
