Do you like me wonder .."What is going on?" Thinking things are not really random, I ask that question. I know our faith is often tested so is this a test of my faith? Is the test question ; will I believe God is good all the way through to the end, no matter the result? What does this test reveal about me to me . What does it reveal about God. Or have I just built a new faith muscle going through this because I have proven to memy faith is valid.
I this a trial ? We all have to go through resistances in life to build our character. Referring back to building muscle, you use weights and resistance to build a muscle and your stamina. I believe it is so with your character.
Along with our Character I believe God walks with us through our trials like a good Father, training us up in the way we should go and building a relationship with us.
The good Father also understands how much one can learn by working a project together. There is much the Lord wants to do on earth but has decided to not do it without us. He created us for the purpose of relationship. We also know the world is messed up and He is waiting for us to be interested in His projects to fix things.
Let us not be like Judas and decide we have the plan and we can provoke God into it . He has the plan and it is relational with Him and with others.
Be careful to not fall into the trap of thinking people are the project . No one want to be your project. The project is learning to participate with God in what He is doing.
