If we are to take a look at our life, there’s no reason on earth to count on stark , raving mad at any negative encounters and experiences we faced. In every way and in every situation, somebody up there is watching over you, over me . . . over us. We just need to come up with a terrific drill and off to a good start.
At times, we may see ourselves on the dead end; entrapped, struggling, stressed, and motionless with too much of flubs. And we thought at the moment that we need a change because we feel that we’re in a rut. But somehow, we have a really hard time getting out of it. It’s foolhardy, that we could get hurt seriously if we don’t find a way to make a good exit of the situation.
We don’t wait until we see trouble on the horizon before we take initiative. Everything on the face of the earth is temporal and there is no permanency. In reality, nothing happens by chance. It is one good thing to hear that each one of us is God’s idea . . . and I am God’s idea as you are!
We keep on comparing with each other’s life and the standards of the world. Nonetheless, we become senseless that we are blocking out to get into seeing the beautiful side of God’s plan. And as we get down pat into the situation, we later realize that we are all fouled up again and again and again.
Life is too fraught with complications and has gotten too many difficulties. After a storm’s devastation, emotional upheaval, scourging dilemma, a seemingly never ending temptation, and painstaking trials, what more could life give us before we realize that we need to call it off and to count on everything about life to the author and finisher of our faith.
The heart of the things has to be taken a look at . . . and what about? This is all about realization and dependency to the God of grace . . . to the God of order . . . to the God of truth . . . and to the God who loves us unconditionally!
Getting back to God and reconditioning our life to Him is not all about struggles from us just to gain recognition from Him. God has long been summoning us to come to Him. In Matthew 11:28, it says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (NIV). There can never be rest on anything we are busied at. Neither you nor I, no matter how educated and intelligent we are, nothing can ever surmount God’s ways. No way . . . and never could there be any way except the way of the Lord.
In John 14:6, Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” YES, there is no other way, and there can never be shortcuts . . . everything is a process! And neither could we build an alternative to this Way, who is Jesus Christ! He is the only Door, the only Way, and the Ultimate answer to all our queries and struggles. All the whys, all the whats, all the hows, and all the what then can be answered through Him and in Him.
He is the Omnipotent God! He is the Omniscient God! He is the Omnipresent God! He is the Alpha and the Omega! He is our everything . . . our total source!
Everything about us has been made possible because of God’s Amazing GRACE!
We are God’s Wonderful Ideas . . . !!!
