Job 12:10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
Psalm 56:4 I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?
Romans 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
It was easy for Jesus to comply with God’s plan because He knew the mind of God and the plans and purpose about His life. No man obeys God at all times because our minds is dominated by the worldly thoughts. Most of the time we get this wrong because we literal take the scripture in it’s textual form. God’s thoughts are higher than ours. He sometimes uses the foolish things to achieve greatness. Philippians 2:13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Holy Spirit allows us to comply to with the will of God about our lives. Without discerning the spiritual things , we will always question instead of acting.
You cannot hear God when in a noisy place. Don’t let the troubles of this world preoccupy your mind. We are passengers in His vehicle. Hebrews 13:21 may he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.
If you don’t want to comply, it’s like forcing the hand of God to act. Jonah and Saul leaned the hard way, don’t let it get to that point. Be sensitive to the voice of God.
1 John 2:16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.
1 John 4:11-13 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.
Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. There is only one person who knows tomorrow. Anything that happens to us, good or bad, happens in the permissible space. Nothing Satan can do without God giving it a tick. If one were to think there are things the devil do without it being permissible by God, we are indirectly saying the devil triumphed over God.
Isaiah 57:1 Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come.
Sometimes we shy away from admitting that God allowed the situation because we think that will be equal to blaming God. What we need to understand is that wrong and right belongs to God. What seems to be wrong to us, is still His righteousness. Psalm 12:5 The LORD replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do.”
Satan can delay things but can never stop what God has destined to happen in certain way. We can pray for things and God changes his mind but all still happens in His permissible space and time. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
We serve God almighty, El Shaddai, the self sufficient and all knowing God. He is the beginning and the end.
