LIFE OF A CHILD OF GOD IS NEVER OVER UNTIL GOD SAYS SO

Friday, January 27th 2012, 7:33 PM in Religious 181 0
The good thing about being a child of God is that He takes care of all His children. If you’re really a child of God, what you’ve been through, passing through now should not distract your focus because Psalm 23:2-4 and Job chapters 1-3 can explain some of the unknown.
Despite how much we’ve always tried, let us never forget certain things like; ‘Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [ in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour (1 Peter 5:8).’ Satan is in the business of trying to separate us from God (Job 2:5-6) by making God to allow us go through certain temptation(s). Remember that even Jesus Christ was not exempted from temptation (Matthew 4:1-10).
It hurts me when people speak evil or say negative things because of what they’re going through or have been through. We often forget what Saint Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 10:13; ‘For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.’
There are other verses that expect us to see temptation as being good. Hebrews 4:15, James 1:2 & 12; 1 Peter 1:6 and 2 Peter 2:9. If we truly believe the bible, then we must understand what Jesus says in John 15:16 concerning us. He says that He has chosen us and we all know why one chooses certain people/things; because they have need for that which is chosen.
If He really chose us or called us, then there must be a reason. In Job’s case, God wanted to prove to Satan that Job is a firm believer. Could your situation be like that of Job? I have refused to believe that God can abandon His own. If we’re the light of the world (Matthew 5:14), it then means that we are mentors to other people who are looking unto us to come to God.
Having said all these, I want to remind us about Jeremiah 29:11; ‘For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.’ Yes, in all that you’re going through, God has a plan to take you to your desired destination through this path. It is when all are settled and you’re where your dream is that God will say it is over. It is not over until God says so just trust Him.

PRAYER POINT:
LORD, give me the strength to understand that you’re always there with me no matter what I am passing through. Shield me with your Shekinah glory in Jesus name.
