God thinking doesn’t allow you to stop pursuing God just because you run up on obstacles or disappointments.
The blessings of God and everything that He has prepared for you are sometimes just a breath away, and you hold on to the past and miss the moment.
Sometimes the fullness of all that was ordained for you is ready to be delivered to you, and you do not receive it, because you just won’t do it God’s way.
Sometimes God has been grooming you through your experiences, good or bad, to strengthen you and just when you are fully prepared, strong enough to go to battle, skilled in a certain discipline that God wants to use for His glory, you get to thinking that you are adequate in yourself and you miss the opportunity to be used for the glory of God.
Sometimes God takes the whole of your existence and turns the events of your life from lost to found, from impotent to powerful, from empty to full and the process gets stopped short by you, not accepting His calling.
