“… once (God) has made his decision, who can change his mind? Whatever he wants to do, he does.” Job 23:13 NLT
From the beginning of time God has had a plan. The Lord does whatever He chooses to do because He knows what’s best for His creation. Man often decides he needs no assistance living his life, especially from someone he cannot see. Over the course of his life man assesses that he hasn’t done all that bad; however, he is only comparing himself to other flawed individuals.
The Lord has allowed mankind to have the freedom to choose which path they would take in life. Man seeks the easiest path not realizing that each path has its own share of cavernous valleys and mountainous heights. His resources are insufficient to deal with life’s many obstacles. Only God offers the special skills needed to best overcome those obstacles.
We make decisions each day and consequences follow each decision we make. They match the type of decisions we make; bad for bad, good for good. To surrender your own ego and will over to the One who made the sun, moon and stars becomes the start of a relationship that will grow or die not based on God’s interest, but rather our interest in drawing near to Him. The Lord has and will always do as He pleases. Lining up with His will for you is not killing yourself, but giving new birth to who God intended you to be from the start. Despite what you may think, it’s not all about you. It’s about whose you are and who you are in Him. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
