Why are people never satisfied? The same people that complain about a God who would allow pain and suffering are the same people that scream and rant when God steps in and tries to work in their life. Fortunately, He is a patient father that knows the best way to help. He won't force His help on us. He waits until we ask for it so that we will listen and obey when the time is right. We are so stubborn though, that we usually bang our head against the wall over and over because we are trying to solve a God sized problem with man sized tools. There is a reason the verse tells us to "cast all your cares upon Him, because He cares for you". As fathers, we know that if we step in and solve every problem that our children's problems, then they don't learn and they don't grow. That amazing teachable moment comes only when the child realizes his own limitations and reaches out to us for help. The same is true with our heavenly father. He cares enough to not force Himself on us. Give every problem, issue and trial to him today and enjoy a little less stress in your life.
What is this?
I start every day by digging into Gods Word. I try to journal what I learn so that I can remember it and apply His principles to my daily life. I challenge you to do the same.
