People be like “ If God already knows what’s going to happen to us, why do we have to go through them?” Well it’s not about Him but about us. He already knows His strength and what He can do for us. The question is do we know what He can do? All this is set up for us because we don’t know who He is until we seek Him. This is all set up to test our authenticity in our love for Him and strengthen us in ways we never imagined. Remember He already knew who we were before we were born. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV)
I wonder how many people are walking around earth lost just as I was at one point. Thinking nothing about spiritual matters and just taking life as it comes. I used to think it was only about survival. You know… working just to pay bills, waking up each day and not really walking in our destiny. Or just being complacent with life: eat, sleep, work and repeat. I didn’t know anything about God nor the devil. I didn’t know we had a spiritual battle to fight in this world. However, once I experienced His goodness I knew I was doing it all wrong all my life. Besides I was just going off by what I’ve seen around me. Everybody around me was just in survival mode.
Nobody around me had a personal relationship with God, they all worshipped other idols. One thing for sure was that I didn’t ever believe in those other idols, something inside of me always questioned it. Hence, it was my handy dandy helper, the Holy Spirit trying to guide me. I didn’t know then what I know now. My life turned out way better than I could have ever imagined. I’m finally walking in my destiny with the Lord doing what makes me happy. God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit make me happy. I didn’t know what real love and peace was until I found them. I’m so thankful for God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and I can’t wait to start actually living life with them by my side.
