We go through life struggling, doing things we think are meant for us to do. We try to create relationships with people we think are meant for us to be with.
Everything that comes our way is not meant for us to have or to keep for ourselves. Some things that come our way are there for a season. Some things are there to teach us, or to teach the other person, to make us stronger, to push us forward, or in the direction God wants us to go. But all things that come our way, are there for a reason.
Some things are just obvious that they are not meant for us, but we force it, and don’t understand why it’s not working for us. That’s because we’re blinded by what we want, and what we want to do.
There are consequences when we go against what God is showing us or calling us to do. When we rebel against God, and be disobedient, sooner or later, He opens our eyes to what we have done. We can’t escape it.
Seeing things as coming from God, will help you to make decisions so much easier. You will be able to discern the truth of God and the lies of satan. You will see that God does love you, and know that all things are working out for your good.
Remember, every good gift, and every perfect gift is from God. Everything is of God, through God, and to God.
