We seem so confident when we constantly make statements such as, ďGodís got my backĒ, or ďGod will fight my battle for meĒ. But, our words and actions after that show that we donít believe that or trust that.
We believe that people are against us, donít like us and are working against us. When those close to us hurt us, we feel like they donít love us as they claim or they just donít love us at all. Do we not believe that God has control of all things and all people? If that is the case, is it not true that He knows about and must allow everything that happens. If that be the case, why do we get so upset as to the way things appear? If God brings you to it, will He not take you through it? If He has promised that ALL things are working for our good, why is it so hard to look at situations, circumstances and people and say, ďRegardless of the fact that this hurts like crazy, I know God is working something out for me. He is bringing me into something that will benefit me. Although I really want this to happen, I realize that God didnít and wonít allow it because itís whatís best for me in His will.Ē
We, as humans, canít trust God completely because we allow our own selfish desires, wishes, and wants to blind us from seeing that God has a plan, and His plan is eternal; our plan is for temporary physical satisfaction or pleasure. We MUST, no excuses, become spiritually minded. The Bible tells us that this world and all that is in it shall someday pass away; so, why are we so set on getting comfortable here? When this world and all of its possessions are gone, we will need somewhere for our souls to rest, which is why we must set our goals and desires on things eternal. Godís plan is the only way to eternity; so, stop looking through your physical eyes, and ask God to open your spiritual eyes to see His eternal plan for you.
After the light shined down upon Saul, when he was able to see again, he saw things differently because God had opened his spiritual eyes to the eternal plan.
If you are holding grudges because you feel like people donít like you or that they are working or have worked against you, your spiritual eye needs to be opened to see that they were just an instrument, a source that God was using to move you a step closer to your eternal destiny. Itís not people, but itís Satan. Satan is the enemy; God just allows him to use people. So, if we want to get mad at someone, would it be Satan or God? If we really look at it, God would be the blame because Satan canít do anything without Godís approval. So, if someone has come against you or if something has gone wrong in your life because of someone, God has given Satan the permission to use that person. Does it do any good to blame God or get mad with Him; NO, because itís all a part of Godís plan. God's plan will prevail every time.
Until we accept and come to the realization
That everything in our lives leads us to our eternal destination,
We will never learn how to overcome;
For, we do not fully acknowledge where our help comes from.
Until we accept and realize that God has an eternal plan,
We will never be able to fully understand
That all things are working for our good
Even when they donít turn out as we think they should.
Until we stop fighting the physical with such determination,
Weíll stop looking at our lives with such great expectations
As to how we think and feel things should be;
For, we have no clue how to get to eternity,
But, through His unconditional love and perfection
God shows us how to make the eternal connection
With all that He allows us to go through and face in life
Whether it brings happiness and success or suffering and strife.
We must acknowledge that the battle isnít with those that come against us;
For, their efforts to make us fail could never be enough
To take away the reward that God has waiting,
Which is why we shouldnít waste valuable time evaluating
What, why, where, how and when.
We should realize that God has control of all men,
And if He allows them to come against you,
There is another victory Heís trying to bring you into.
Stop looking at people as the enemy youíre fighting;
For, looking in the spirit will be enlightening
And allow you to see, accept and understand
That all things are working to reveal Godís plan.
