THINKING THAT YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR LIFE IS A DEAD END STREET....JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE PLAN GOD HAS FOR YOU !!!

The second chapter of the Book of Genesis begins by telling us that God rested on the seventh day from all the works that He had done. He was done with everything that was going to happen from that time until the end of this world. It was complete and, as usual, there is much more to understanding what this all means to us, but in this case, it is not too difficult. Simply, the books had all been written concerning every person and things that would ever exist on this earth… God had made all of the plans for mankind as a whole as well as individuals and knew then what was going to happen now because He had planned it.

We all think that we have control over our lives, although some have figured out that, in fact, we have no control over anything. God controls all things and occasionally and purely by coincidence, what we do and think that it was our idea coincides with the plan of God for each of us, we believe that we controlled it. Man has a huge ego and delights in the fact that he thinks that he knows what he is doing, and we can be almost certain that God just sits back and smiles at the arrogance of man.

The Bible gives us many stories and they are given to us for the purpose of attempting to show us the will of God for us. When man decides to go off in another direction, God allowed it in order to illustrate the results of such actions so that all future peoples could see and understand that the only way was the way of God. Jonah tried to escape God and we see what the result was. There are stories in which God allowed Satan to overwhelm the people, but again this was to illustrate certain lessons that God was giving us.

Unfortunately, man seems to always have a problem seeing what is right in front of him. Man uses the fact that God gave us free will and therefore allows us to do whatever we want. But, we must remember and have spoken about this before, that free will is not an action, it is merely a thought and maybe a thought with intent, but it is not an action… Anyone who thinks that he or she can fight against the will of God for each of us and win is just plain foolish. But, the point is we would be absolutely stupid to want to do anything that God had planned for us because who knows better what is best for us… We have spoken about contentment before and cannot think of any better way of achieving contentment than to trust God with our lives !!!

Certainly, unfortunate events happen in our lives and people get hurt and sometimes die, but if we look to the Bible, we shall always find the answer. In all of the stories and lessons given to us in the Bible, we see that events take place that later on end up with incredible and marvelous events. We can be fairly certain that God knows what He is doing and we must trust His decisions for our lives. We must never doubt ( Ah, there’s that “doubt” again ) that God does not love us and will always do the things for us that are in our best interests. Those who have understood that God controls all things and are in the process of giving up their lives to God are on the road to contentment. Life is not easy, but we can make it tougher by thinking that we know best; or we can make it easier by understanding that our book has already been written and there is no way of changing the story…
