Have you ever wondered what makes you do the things that you do and it makes you realize that you were so blind before?
Many of our false actions are caused by an attempt to heal old scars but what we don't realize is that we are only causing deeper damage to ourselves and even to others around us by those actions, they even say that history repeats itself and that's why when there is one failed test..the same test often follows until you pass it.
We need to stop pushing the rewind button in our lives and instead push the stop and restart buttons on our lives,
Maybe then we won't have to face what we once had to face but we can smile by making the right choices here and now,
Though we've failed before..we can start anew and trust in God to help us to get past those failures.
Maybe if we spent more time not on what others think or even how it makes us feel but think more on what God is thinking about our actions, then we wouldn't have to suffer so much.
What does God want for us?
What does God ask of us?
Think about it..
In my mind there are two things that God wants for us and asks us to do for him..
#1. God wants us to be healthy and unharmed but living in the world these days there are mainly things sent that are going to harm us..
these things are not from God but still exist in the world and by our sinful nature we can get caught up in the sinful moments if we're not careful,
But then there's God's plan and his plan is simple, He wants to comfort us, to stick closer than a brother, his plans will not harm us but will only protect us from the plans of this world..if we choose his plan for our lives,
though satan keeps trying hard to push us down on the ground to prevent us from our purpose, he cannot do so as long as we keep speaking the things of God into our lives!
We can be conquerors in Christ instead of being followers of the worlds demise!
#2. What God wants from us is quite simple.. He wants us to obey his commandments,
He wants us to trust in him fully according to his word and he wants us to trust in his plan for our lives..
The difference between God's plans and the plans of this world is that God's plans always lead to a destination but the plans of this world and satan's plans are uncertain and you don't know where they'll lead to or what comes in your life along the way of that path..
I don't know about you but I want to finish well in this life and I want to have peace that only comes from God..
it doesn't come from this world and Satan tries to tempt us into thinking that it's a dream come true when it's only a nightmare posing as what you dream of! I'm going to share with you the verse that I have gone to thousands of times and it always offers me encouragement!
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
