The biggest issues believers have is not being able to trust in God & his power. We take our time to look at all the bad that has happened in our lives and we ask God “If you love me why this? Why that?” But we over look the good that he has brought us. We take God and his word out of context by saying “God knew that this was going to happen, so if he loved me why did he let that happen?” “God allowed all this bad to happen to me?” “I prayed to him and asked him to save my family and it still got teared apart!”
Does God Know Everything? Yes God knows everything that is going to happen before It does.
Psalms 139: 2-4
You know when I sit down and when I get up. You know my thoughts before I think them. You know where I go and where I lie down. You know everything I do. Lord, even before I say a word, you already know it.
Does God Allow Bad Things To Happen & Why? Yes, God allows things to happen in life BUT he does it with a purpose. That purpose is for you to become stronger, grow your faith and endurance, and draw closer to him.
“You will have suffering in this world.”
For example, The Las Vegas shooting was a very negative point for us and a lot of people where asking why God why?
“Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”
One thing that I’m learning is that God see’s things from a heavenly stand point and we only see tunnel vision. Yes it hurts not being able to understand why things are happening, but if we knew everything how could God show himself true to us?
I Asked God For This, But Why Didn’t It Happen ?
A lot of times we blame God for the situations we are going through knowing that God didn’t place you in that situation , you did! If God said that he will keep your relationship together he will do it, but did God say it in the first place? We place so much expectation on God to do everything we ask him when he hasn’t even agreed to this. Everything we ask isn’t the best thing for us nor is in it God’s plan for us. This is a big reason why we need the Word Of God to help counteract the lies of the enemy and the lies we tell ourselves👏🏾 The truth will set you free and lead you to peace and happiness💫
The reason why we don’t trust God is because we lose sight of what God is doing when things don’t turn out how we want them. But if you truly have faith in him and you want him to be the light on your light and a lamp onto your feet, you have to trust that everything he is doing is only for the best and will sooner or later be in your favor 💕 You might be asking yourself what does this have to do with self love? Ask yourself how can you truly love yourself when you can’t even trust yourself? You are made in God’s image right?
