God’s choices are not temperamental.
He always has a plan and a reason.
He ALONE knows why He does the things He does.
Nothing is based on “pick me, pick me!”
Even BEFORE Jacob and Esau we’re born He told Rebekah that he would exalt Jacob over Esau.
BEFORE either of them got to do any good deeds or make bad choices.
We are not able comprehend God’s reasons for what He does and what He allows to happen.
But everything He does is for the greater good!
Romans 9:29 – Isaiah also said, “If the Lord All-Powerful had not spared some of our descendants, we would have been destroyed like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Only God knows why things happen.
I’m almost speechless at this. I’ve heard this truth over and over again. I’ve even said it myself!
Why does God allow people to hurt?
Why are some people born into poverty?
Why did God take my angel baby before I ever got to meet him?
Why do people experience infertility?
Only God knows why. Seriously.
It’s not just a saying, it’s a fact.
One of the biggest mistakes we make is thinking that God chooses for capricious reasons.
What’s happened to you or what you’re currently going through isn’t random. Maybe you made a bad choice and you believe it led to the situation that you’re facing now. But know and take comfort in the fact that God has every detail in your life planned.
Jeremiah 1:5 – “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
There is a reason for everything and it has nothing to do with your actions.
God takes us through storms for many reasons known only to Him.
After losing my baby, I immediately thought about everything in life that I had done wrong.
It was so easy for me to think: God is punishing me.
Those that I shared my heartbreaking story with repeatedly told me, it wasn’t anything you did, Shar.
But I just ignored it. I found it hard believe.
There I was again, making it all about me. Me me me. It wasn’t about me and it’s not about me.
It’s about God.
And His Will.
