As we consider ourselves to be believers and faithful servants of God we always have to look further and beyond our realm. The norm and standard will not always apply to us. We have our own path. Coherently, it may be over and above man’s understanding, not always but frequently it is. Our lives will not always be in the pages of books that we read. We have our own unlikely dilemmas and pickles to face but we have the most certain exceptional results. Open your eyes, observe and hopefully, we’ll see further and beyond.
This only applies to whomever obeys God.
Obeying God is the ultimate sacrifice we could offer. He asks us of nothing less. Your life is secure if you are confident that you are submitting yourself to God’s will. When in doubt, it only means one thing. We are probably in the opposing side, a displeasure in his sight. The labors and pains might be unbearable but the results are unprecedentedly phenomenal and impressive. This is how God works in his obedient servants. His design is flawless. His plans are wonderful and difficult to believe. It is quite a breathtaking feat and almost impossible to be meet until it all materialize.
God’s designs are not anyone’s design
Trust is the key in the world of faith in God. We have to hope and trust Him. No matter how challenging it is. Obedience should always remain in us. At the end of the day, it is how we always get justified. Because disobedience is the way straight down to dishonor, failure and displeasing God.
Romans 4: 20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
But how can we obey if we don’t fully understand? That is what we call obedience through faith. You just see the author and the finisher, His track record and His promises. You have proven who gives the command and you are a fool not to follow Him. You knew Him well that you should trust Him with your life. God had already showed us many times and demonstrated His worth, more than anything and anyone. He is so reliable that He should’nt be given the benefit of the doubt. But should be given will all the benefit of NO doubt. He deserves an unwavering faith from His creations. Who do you think should trust Him at the rockbottom? Of course those who will be justified as righteous and loyal for which they are appointed of great accolade and wealth.
I don’t think it is necessary for us to know and understand the whole design, the structures and the plan specifics of God in our lives. Who among us was lucky enough that every event and consequence presented itself exactly the way you planned them? That is so unlikely to happen to anyone who believes in our Lord Jesus Christ. There are too many factors to consider. We neither see anything as God sees them. It is way beyond anyone. Trust comes into play so we have to abide by the rules. Plan ahead in faith and move forward head on as you are led by the Spirit of God. Keep on praying, it never fails. Read His words for it is the only map of infinite treasures.
Keep on serving Him. Glory to our Lord Jesus Christ, the only one true God.
