Today’s devotional is teaching us that everything that happens in our entire life, was approved by God. It’s easy for people to understand that about the good, but we all stutter a bit over knowing and trusting God allowed every bad thing that has happened as well. It is most difficult to except when we loose a loved one, knowing even then, God approved it. God may not have thought they could handle more pain on this earth, so HE rescued them from having to deal with the hazards of life and took them on to peace and everlasting love. I know how hard it is to except that. I have recently lost my last parent, and at a young age lost my true sister. It took years and maturity in my faith and my relationship with God before I could read this and know.
In the Bible we read the book of Job, a man who truly loved and worshipped our Father, yet God allowed Satan to take every thing that He valued away, and still Job did not loose his faith in God. He probably felt like that was all that he had left. Because Job never lost his faith in God, he was rewarded like none before.
There have been years in my life, where I felt like Job, having lost so much. I only wish that I had better followed Job’s example of dealing with it. I remember the day very clearly when James and I lay in bed talking. I had just recently undergone the last option the Dr had at relieving the back pain that is the main reason I am on bed rest. Knowing there were many other issues and diseases flowing through my body, and I looked over at my personal Superman, and said, it’s not going to get any better is it? The sad look on his face as he said, “no honey, it’s not” I felt very broken and defeated. Since that time, my knowledge of the Father has grown immensely, as well as my faith and security. There is no doubt in my heart that this is God’s plan for me. I have learned just how much I can still do for my family and others. God has not deserted me, just opened my eyes to all the different things He still has planned for me to do.
We should always remember that this is the Creator we are talking about, there is nothing He can’t do. Ask Him if it is in His will, that He answer your petition, and if not, we can trust His will is the best way for our lives. We never know what is coming tomorrow or further, but our Heavenly Father does, and we can lay our complete trust in Him.
