God Thinking LXI - Good Theology 5

"You don’t have anything going on in your life that God is not fully acquainted with - and besides that, He knows how you got in it and He knows how to get you out.  There are no exceptions.

If you are not going through the fire right now and you experiencing the joy and the peace that comes with a yielding relationship with God - then God will simply use this time in your life to draw you closer and impart to you His wisdom - because God understands the good times:
  • The times when things seem to come together:
  • The times when all your bills are all paid
  • The times when your spouse thinks you are the greatest person on earth
  • The times when your children do everything you tell them to do, because they believe that you really do know best.
  • The times when you are secure
  • The times when you have no fear
  • The times when you get a raise without asking
God simply wants you thanking Him and utilizing what you are a steward of during these seasons of bliss.

But for all the other times:
  • Like when nothing comes together, no matter what you do.
  • The times when the stress that comes with trying to pay all the bills is so great you want to throw in the towel.
  • The times when your spouse seems like your enemy.
  • The times when your children don’t listen, and actually they believe you are more stupid than a telephone pole.
  • The times when you are very insecure and lonely and empty and wanting and depressed.
  • The times when you fear everything; you fear tomorrow, you fear death, you fear loss of financial security, fear of your singleness.
  • The times when you couldn’t get a raise or maybe even a job. 
God knows all about these times too, because God made you and everything that was made."
