“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”
Numbers 23:19

As I sit here trying to think of just one thing that I wished God would have changed His mind about when it comes to an event in my life that I wished had turned out different my mind comes up blank. I can only attribute this to the fact that, when I was saved, I gave my entire life to Jesus for whatever He needed it for. Lest anyone think that I am holier than thou, I am far from it. My life before Jesus was so messed up that His saving me, and His help through the past fourteen years, cleaned up that mess. No, my life is not exactly where I want it to be and there are some things about it I would like to see changed, especially my current living conditions, but whatever God wants, God gets. I have learned in all of the situations, bad or good, that God has placed me in that He can be trusted with the eventual outcome. I could write about the many, many ways God has either helped me overcome problems, or how His faithfulness has seen me through the problems, but I can’t think of one time that I’ve wanted God to change the circumstance for my benefit. I know that He is growing me through each one and I would never want God to stop what He is doing so I could get a break and get a little down time in my life. But I would rather grow in Christ and suffer a little inconvenience at times in order to grow than to think that I am done growing. Like Paul, I have learned to be content in whatever situation God puts me in. Do I always like the situation? No! Do I wish God would stop to let me breathe once in a while? Sure I do! But, I wouldn’t want Him to change a thing for my benefit because I know that, sooner or later, God will finish what He has started in me. That doesn’t mean that I don’t get discouraged at times, but I know that, for my greater good, and for the purpose that He has for me, God must have His way.
