With Everything

God is the best thing that has happened to me! What about for you?

I say this because all my life I tried going through each day on my own path. Society teaches us as people we must choose our own path. We must become our own person. We must do this or we must do that… You get my point. I agree with this to a degree, but the premise at which society bases this on I don’t agree. It seems to me that society has slowly removed God from the equation and society as a whole has lost sight at what God wants from us. The aforementioned choices that I spoke of, were referenced in the bible as to how us as God’s children should be living. These were things that God said we need to go by.. Things written in the bible. Below are a few scriptures to reference….

Matthew 22:37 – “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”.

I love this one because it reminds me that first if I am doing this, it is impossible that I am not putting God first. The fact is, that God MUST come first. Second, if I am focused on this, then there is no room for Satan to weasel his way in and corrupt my mind and drive a wedge between me and the Father.

Matthew 6:33 – “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you”.

This scripture is beautiful because again it says to put God first. If we are focused directly onto God, then our lives will get better. We may not like some of the places God moves us to, but it is His will for us. A personal quick story on this. When my wife and I were having issues, at that point in time, I lost sight of what God truly had for me. I was really struggling with the idea that my youngest was not with me as she was with her mom. Meanwhile, I had my beautiful wife, my son, and my stepchildren whom I view as my children right here with me. I slowly stopped seeking God’s kingdom. As I slowly stopped seeking God’s Kingdom, my life became worse and worse. Anxiety was through the roof on a daily basis, I was making poor choices, etc. This was really taking a toll on my family, especially my wife. She was doing all she could to keep the fort together and I was not being the man God called on me to be for my family. I was so hyperfocused on my youngest daughter not being with me so I could love her so much that I essentially blinded myself to the beauty right in front of me. My beautiful family and building a beautiful life together! I had to be reminded that it is not my plan, but God’s plan.

Proverbs 3:5-6 – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths”.

This is so tough to do, but I love this one because it reminds me of the times that I like to hit my head on a wall, so to speak, when I am in a situation that seems absolutely impossible. When it is a recipe to invite anxiety into the equation, uncertainty, fear, etc. All the emotions that Satan thrives on. He waits for us to be into despair then he gets to work. However, what’s neat is we get to trust God. We also get to accept Jesus into our hearts and allow Him to live through us each day.

In the grand scheme of things, we do have free choice. It is challenging to trust God at times, but imagine the joy and the glory we get when God calls us home from following the principles our Heavenly Father bestowed upon us. Besides, who said that following God would be easy? There is God’s polar opposite (Satan) that does everything in his deceitful abilities to seek, ruin, and destroy all of God’s children. He despises that we wish to do the will of God. So he will do all possible to drive us away from God’s will. I stated this in a past post, but he will even use things that are seemingly harmless in order to keep us from praising and glorifying God. In the end, God will always win!

Until next time my brothers and sisters in Christ… God Bless!

  1. Oh! If God is the best thing that has happened to me too. Sometimes, I try to imagine where I would be had he not come for me 4years ago. The choices I would have made.

    I can never wrap my head around it.

    I thank God for your family too

    1. Chioma,

      Thank you for the post. This kind of reminds me of Matthew 11:28 – “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”.

      God is all powerful and infinite in His abilities to perform miracles. Miracles we couldn’t even fathom doing. I hope you have a blessed and wonderful day.

  2. Do you really think that you’re so powerful that you can decide and pick and choose when to be on God’s plan and when not to be? We are his creations we are but hunks of iron that he forges as He sees fit. Sometimes that entails polishing us to a shine with the soft touch of His kindness and generosity, and sometimes that entails thrusting us into the fire and pounding us at the Anvil to temper and strengthen us. We are all his works of art but not all masterpieces are shining scenes of joy and bliss, many are pain and suffering and struggling earnestly just to fail, and it is all remarkable even if it isn’t what we want. How dull and ordinary it would be if God only made happy pictures with sunshine and candy. That’s not a masterpiece, it’s a coloring book. You may think you’re honoring him by blaming your trouble on yourself and your success on the Lord, but it’s hubris to think you can take the brush away from Him and splash about the canvas. Humble yourself and be grateful to be part of His great work however He decides to use you.

    1. Tom,

      Thank you for your post. The Lord gave us such a beautiful, yet powerful gift that paves the way for us. That gift is free will. We get the choice to listen and obey God’s will for us. Those who hear His voice hears the truth and will follow the truth. In our free will, we can choose to do whatever we want. However, each choice is tied to a consequence.

      Galatians 6:7-8 – “For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”

      I am grateful that God gave me the option to choose to follow and obey Him. It feels good to follow what is good, true and righteous. We must keep God’s commandments as these are key principles on how to live. I personally ask God to show me throughout my day how I can honor and glorify Him. That any time during the day, where a difficult situation presents itself, that I may be able to use that to glorify His name.

      Romans 8:28 – “And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose”.

      Yes, God takes even pain and suffering and uses all of that to perfect His creations. He, after all, hand formed us all.

      Some people choose to not listen to God’s message no matter how many times He revealed Himself to those folks. That part is heartbreaking.

      Again, I thank you for your post and God Bless!
