If anyone is seeking for something's that missing in your life, I know the answer. GOD is the only one true god in this world. Looking back at my life I have been transformed drastically (looks, personality, behaviour, thoughts&emotions, purpose). Thinking with my human mind it all doesn't make sense. 'Why is this happening' 'Why is that happening' 'What's the purpose of studying' 'Why am I in this place/situation' 'Why am I suffering from this problem' IT ALL DOESNT MAKE SENSE TO ME. Then I asked God, "Why God?" It's said in God's word that God gives wisdom freely to all without finding fault with us. I longed for his answer. I have asked him this question for months and I could have got the answer earlier "". In the past fornight I had the most wonderful answers. God helped me to think in his perspective instead of mine. I want to tell(or encourage) everyone that you're placed in your shoes for God's reason. It's not for us to debate, since what we consider wisdom to us is foolishness to God, and what God regards as Wisdom is foolishness to us. (Thanks dad for telling me) Arguing back with your own perspective of what you think your life should be like for it to be considered successful is pointless.
Listening to sermons, Paul writes:
Trials and Temptations
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
9The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. 10But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. 11For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.
12Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
16Don't be deceived, my dear brothers. 17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
Thanks for the sermons, the encouragement from dad, from uncles, from my BRO (A LOT), from myself cuz looking back, the 'thorn' in the flesh is placed in my life so that God will be able to transform me into a 'high-quality' product through the testings. (drawing a parallel: Electronics undergo testing after testing, that's why your IPOD is so durable and is considered a "high-quality" product!) It all makes sense now!!
Have to go off to church! Bb ~~~
