If you belong to God, you are God’s workmanship, knit together in your mother’s womb by the One that made the universe.  (Eph2:10 & Psalm 139:13)

Even before God made you, He knew you and He has and is preparing you for good works in the future and now.  He has a mission for you and listening to Him is vital to His leading you.

Your Father isn’t surprised by the things that happen and effect you.  We don’t understand, but if you understood everything, that would make you God.

Your job then, is to trust our Father in all things.  Even when we don’t understand.  He is shaping you for things that you have no clue about at this point.

When we don’t understand, we trust Him.  When we hurt, we lean on Him.  When we are confused, we take one step at a time as He leads us.

Psalm 73: 2-4 says,

“But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
    I had nearly lost my foothold.
For I envied the arrogant
    when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

They have no struggles;
    their bodies are healthy and strong.

 

There will be things that happen that you don’t understand.  We don’t get the position that we wanted.  We get a bad diagnosis.  We are misunderstood.  All the while those that aren’t following Christ may seem to be getting ahead.  You can’t let that make you slip.  If you are following Christ, you have a foundation that will stand even when you are shaken.

The Psalmist says, “Whom have I in heaven but you?  And earth has nothing I desire besides you.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”  -Psalm 73:25-26

God made you for a purpose.  Never forget that and hang on forever.
