I shared this seven years ago on social media. It is a perspective of those things we do not understand that is worthy of getting a hypothetical glimpse. “Why me Lord?”, is so much more than we can understand. We just have to thank Him in all things and trust Him in all situations and try to stop complaining and trust that there is good reason. There is no such thing as luck, coincidence, or karma. Our battle is real and in heavenly places. This is truth told to us in Ephesians 6:10-12. I encourage you to pray for your minds to be enlightened, your thanks to be quickly forthcoming in all situations, and your trust to be steadfast, unending, never doubting, that even in all appearances of a terrible day, it could and should have been so much worse.
Thank you God for your mercies and grace unending. Thank You for the armor You give to us to take into days like this so that we are equipped with truth, righteousness, peace, salvation, Your word, and our fellowship with You in prayer.
“Taken from a friend’s posting:
Me: God can I ask you a question?
Me: Promise you won’t get mad?
God: I promise.
Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
Me: My car took forever to start,
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait,
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call…..
God: All right…..
Me: And to top of it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?
God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that…..
Me (humbled): OH
God: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call; I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God…..
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I’m sorry God.
God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me…..in all things , the good and the bad.
Me: I will trust you.
God: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children…..”
Don’t be discouraged. Keep looking up instead of around… God is in the daily grind in a big way. Why? Because we professed our Faith in Jesus, we are His children and call Him Abba Father.
