God puts you in situations that you will succeed in or fail. This is done to teach you lessons or maybe for someone else’s sake. Maybe they will be inspired or convicted through your works. We Christians are God’s hands and feet and he uses us to fulfill his eternal plan.
The big picture is something that only God can see. Our smaller picture is all we have to go by. The rest is FAITH!!! Just like there are two sides to every story, remember that there are two stories when it comes to God and us. Putting your trust in God will strengthen your faith. He knows what he is doing and its going to happen one way or another regardless of what you do. So let God work in your life and the rewards will astound you!
If you are going through a valley and you don’t understand why keep your eyes up! Give it to God. He has it all under control. Trust Him. If you are going through a peak let everyone know that it was by nothing you did. GIVE THE GLORY TO GOD!!!
Have a blessed day! :)
O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord, You hem me in — behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake I am still with you.Psalm 139:1-18
