God Has Worked It All Out – Faith Is The Key

God Has Worked It All Out – Faith Is The Key

Daily Devotional

Recently I saw a Christian meme that said ” God has placed you where  you’re at in this very moment for a reason. Trust He’s working everything out.” I believe that this was designed to give hope and to make people feel good. But it’s not altogether true. I created this Christian meme to give hope to all those who need it. I believe that the truth gives the great hope of all.

 

Gods will is better than our will.

Trust In God Always.

 God sent us to earth with a body and free will with the agency to use it. We will always make mistakes. The Bible teaches us that we can repent for the mistakes we make or the sins we commit.

God doesn’t interfere with our use of agency. Where we’re at in any given moment is a result of our choices and use of free will. If we find our self in a bad place that makes us feel sad, then we have made uninspired choices. We put our self in that place.

If we find our self in a place that makes’ us feel happy, then we have made good and inspired choices. God will help us when we ask him or seek after him.

God will not uproot us and put us in a certain place that makes us feel bad, which takes away our free will. The great hope and truth behind all this is that with God, all things are possible and we can improve our situation as we ask for Gods guidance.

The Exception Rule

There is an exception to this. There are times when you find your self in a bad situation where you feel awful, through no fault of your own. This kind of situation can be caused by health problems or by being victimized.

In this case, we are placed in a situation without our consent or choice. In these types of situations we feel terrible and we need solutions and help. That help and ultimate happiness comes from God. He isn’t “working things out,” He has already worked them out and the help and solutions you need are already there.

To get Gods help simply requires faith in Him and reaching out though prayer, asking for His help. Then we need to be patient and listen for His help or be patient and wait for his help. Help will come. In His time frame you will receive His help.

Choices and Consequences

Choices and Consequences

Choice brings with it consequences. Every day brings a plethora of choices and our lives are the sum of the consequences of those choices. (Callahan)

It seems that it is becoming politically correct in our society to deny the reality of consequences to our actions. It is a Christian principle that for every action results in a consequence. This is taught in the Bible as what you sow, that shall ye reap. The consequence of planting a field of barley is a harvest of barley. If you wanted wheat, you should have planted wheat.

If you don’t want to go to jail then you shouldn’t commit crime. If you want to go to heaven then you should live by the words of the prophets and apostles contained in the Bible along with the everlasting words of truth taught by Jesus Christ in the four gospels.

We have a choice to forgive others or not. The consequence of forging others is that The Lord will forgive us. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the teachings of actions and consequences. We are granted agency to choose for ourselves. We have never be granted the freedom from consequences. We can choose for ourselves but we cannot choose the resulting consequences.
