Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases. (Psalm 115:3-ESV)
Have you ever tried to “figure out” God? Wondering and pondering “what’s next” or how He’s going to get you out of “this”? Are you guilty of wanting things “your way”?
Well, my sister, “whatever is meant to be–is it meant to be! God does as He pleases and sometimes it’s hard to understand it, especially when it’s not going the way you may think or want. Our steps are directed through Him and even though we choose which path (the good or the bad) in every situation, we can learn and grow through it.
Remember Jonah? The Lord wanted to use him to go to Ninevah and stand up against the wickedness. (Have you ever been there?) Jonah didn’t want to see God’s mercy extended to his enemies. Jonah instead chose to flee from the presence of the Lord and go to Joppa and boarded a ship to Tarshish. In other words, Jonah took the driver’s seat wanted things HIS way!! He ignored God’s plan which caused unnecessary stress, strain, and hardship for him and others! He ended up in the belly of a fish. But eventually, he got back on track
So today, let God have the Driver’s Seat! No matter what road you travel (disappointments, losses, sickness), it’ll work!!! You must trust and believe He does as He pleases for your benefit.
