Coming to the realization that all our actions suffer consequences, makes it so much easier to live a blameless life. Some people don’t believe in God because of the confusion about how can God hurt me if he love me, why will he break me down just to build me back up.
To end all of the confusion take into consideration what I stated earlier. “All of our actions suffer consequences” whether that’s good or bad. In other words you “reap what you sow”. Sometimes we forget the things that we sow, but our Heavenly Father never forgets. Which is why things happen to us when we least expect it.
Our Heavenly Father works in mysterious ways. God will put you in a position to see things you need to pay more attention to from a different angle.
For example around June of 2017 I was terminated from my first job. I used to go in with a bad defensive mood, I was late just about every day and I didn’t interact with my co workers much, but I did my job honestly. At first when I got terminated I had all of these negative emotions about the people that worked there, I felt like they didn’t like me, they had to be jealous of my hard work, I even felt like someone had maybe set me up to get terminated. I felt like they were against me but I was really against myself.
Eventually I came to realize I had sowed bad seeds in the company, so I was terminated in return. Getting terminated made me realize being kind with get you farther than having a defensive aggressive attitude. Their is no need for that type of attitude when you have God on your side. He is our defender and he will remove of out of situations that serve of no purpose.
Getting terminated was so devastating to me. It was the first time it had happened. But then I realized it was in God’s plan. He worked in my favor to help me see something I needed to pay more attention to from a different angle. Our Heavenly Father is the best teacher. I put myself in a position to be terminated but he was with me through it all and helped me to see things more clearer. He helped me gain wisdom that I can use to help someone who may be going through or has been through the exact same thing
Things we go through we bring them on ourselves but God is with us every step of the way. When we’ve done all we can do as humans, he comes in to help us. Our Heavenly Father wants us to stay prayed up through our bad and our good, he wants us to take heed, and stay aware of what’s going on. The exact same way we read into shows, music, recipes, drugs, and much more.
So the next time you’re going through something instead of blaming others or God. Think of what you have done to be in this position. Look and listen to everything God is showing you. Pray! Ask for forgiveness and ask for help with learning from your trials
