You don’t have to flow with every current or roll with every punch that comes along. Don’t assume if it happened, it was meant to be. Or destiny. Or fate. Or karma. Or God’s will.
Hebrews 11:6 (NIV) – And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Earnestly seek him. Question your circumstances. In every baffling situation, ask, “What is the deal here, God? Is this situation final? Is it beyond my control? Did you make a promise to me in the past about this? How do I deal with this situation the way you want me to?”
You can’t effectively deal with conditions unless you know the truth about them. Taking a stab at it is often futile. In many situations, it’s impossible to know the truth unless God reveals it.
Psalm 25:14 (NIV) – The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them.
Get the truth about your circumstances. Only God can provide that. And He will. He will happily share what you need to know.
Earnestly seek him.
