Our 15 year old son was hit by a car 1 1/2 years ago. I have also, come to know Jesus pesonally as of September of this year. We have joined a Greif Share group and found wonderful fellowship. My question. I understand that God has a plan for our lives, even before we are born. Can this plan be altered through free will and choices? Can it be changed through Gods intervention?
Does it do any good to pray for our childrens safety? If he already knows when they will be called home? Would it be better to pray for acceptance and understanding of his devine purpose?
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My aunt lost her daughter suddenly, and she may be asking the same questions. Through some trials in my life, I have also asked many of the same questions.
Looking back, I know some of the decisions I made in my life was not God's Will, but I do think he allowed it to happen simply because "everything works together for good for those who love the Lord." Romans 8:28
Because I am not greater than the One Who Created me, I don't think I am capable of altering God's plan for my life, however, I do think at times, I can go against His Will and suffer the consequences. Hebrews 12:6.
I know your situation was completely unavoidable, and during those times of trial, continue to ask God fully expecting Him to Answer you James 1. You may not have even pondered those questions before the car accident, and now that you are asking them now may be an indication that you are leaning closer to Him. As you continue to search for the answers to those questions in prayer and in His Word, I think that further down your walk with God He Will Reveal those answers to you.
