Have you ever just asked…. WHY ME?
Why am I going through this? Why are we always fighting this battle? Why is the economy so bad? Why. Why. Why.
My question is why not? We can go crazy trying to figure out the why and how of things. WHY don’t we just accept that stuff happens! Even for people who have a relationship with Christ…. We get so caught up in wineing about why. We need to realize that having a relationship with God doesn’t keep stuff from going wrong.
John 10:10 in the Amplified version of the Bible says
“The theif comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
So, that lets me know that no matter who you are, what background you come from, where you live, Satan, the theif, is going to seek to destroy your life.
So when bad things happen, instead of complaining and going around saying, “WHY WHY WHY???” Realize that Jesus came so you could enjoy life. Realize what Romans 8:28 Amp. says,
“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design adn purpose.”
So, things are working for my good, even when I can’t see the good in it. God is in control. Nothing takes Him by suprise. He’s not in Heaven going…. “Oh no, what are we going to do? Did you see the stock market today in the USA? We are in big trouble!” The Bible says He doesn’t sleep. He is ever watchful over us!
Romans 8:31 Amp. Says, “What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]
I encourage you to look at your situations that are in your life and say to your self, “What am I gonna say about all this? If God is for me, than there is no situation I’m facing that can prevail against me!”
