It’s not fair!
If we be honest, life does not always seem fair. Have you ever taken inventory of your life and where you are in comparison to others and wondered why they were succeeding and you appeared to be suffering?
- Why is my job threatened while they’re being promoted?
- Why is their child excelling and my children are rebelling?
- Why are they married and I am still single?
- Why does their marriage appear to be flourishing and mine is on the brink of divorce?
- Why are they healthy and I am suffering through this disease?
This type of attitude is wrong and can even lead us to wonder if God really cares for us.
We cannot allow our minds to create stories based upon our experiences. Get to the heart of the problem: You’re story is fueled by either a lack of faith or by you operating in the flesh, making moves without the guidance of God.
Let’s be realistic. We really do not know what is good or bad for us. We only know what we want. What we want is based on what we see others having.
A promotion on your job, could’ve led you to become prideful, no longer seeking the face of God.
The spouse that you wanted could’ve led you to making THAT person your God, and losing your purpose that must be fulfilled.
The producer of a movie does not give the movie goer the end of the movie from the beginning. The conclusion of a book is not written before the introduction. We never see the whole picture of our lives at the beginning, which causes us to create a misleading conclusion.
Have faith in the goodness of your Father. Above all else, you belong to Jesus and His plans and desires for you are to make you whole. Anything that would separate you from Him or lead you down the path of destruction, He will block it.
Rest in the assurance that God is for you and has everything to do with you!
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.”II Peter 1:2-4 NKJV
Life may seem to be unfair but what is far worse is the unfair treatment and lack of trust that our Savior receives from us.
