Stop Arguing With God

If we paused and looked at our journey on life’s road this far, each of us could say that our lives have been filled with ups, downs, ebbs, and flows that are most times unexplainable.  We would not be where we are today if we were the conductors of the destiny of our lives, because we would have many times taken the easier path, but it has been God who has been leading and guiding our lives from the beginning.  All of the good days we have had are because of God, and also God also orchestrates all of the bad days.  Although if we were God we would have done some things different in our lives and we would have went down some different paths, but God knows what are destiny is, so He also knows the best path for us to arrive there.  

The Scripture reminds us that, everything has already been decided.  It was known long ago what each person would be.  So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.  I encourage you today to remember that only God knows where He is leading you.  It may not feel like the best path for you, and you have been arguing with God about your journey, but there is no need to argue with God because He knows where He is taking you.  It is imperative that you trust God even when you do not understand why you are going through what you may be going through.  

Trust God when the path is pleasant, and trust Him when the path is dark and lonely.  God knows the great destiny that He has for you, and it is better for you to trust God than to attempt to make your own path in life.  I know The Lord has a great destiny for me, and although I do not always like or understand the path He has me on, I also know that He will never steer me wrong.  

Since I will no longer argue with God about the path to my great destiny, because I know He has great things in store for my life I am thoroughly convinced “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Forgive me Lord for arguing with you about the path of my life.  Help me to trust you more and remind me often that the destiny that you have for me is great and it is worth the journey.  In Jesus Name Amen.
