God Thinking XC - A Season Of Favor 6

"What I am about to share with you is not news, but it is good news.

God has established His Word to come about or to come forth at His will. 
We know that God established covenants with the Israelites.  We know that God established a new covenant with us/you, those of us/you who believe that Jesus Christ is Savior, those who have accepted the vicarious sacrifice of Christ for their salvation.

We know that since creation God established times and seasons, dispensations, eras in time where God unveils more of His plan and establishes covenant that perfectly fits the times and the seasons.

We know that in each era of time God provided for the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual growth of each and every person on earth.

Did all accept God’s ways?  No.
Did all follow His leading?  No.
Did even the majority of people at any one time in history choose to follow after the heart of God?  No.

And so it is today. Don't be so surprised. Things are gong along exactly the way God said it would.

Note: I know that the statement "Things are going along exactly as God said it would" makes some people like God even less.  They figure that if God knew what was going to happen to their best friend, or the death of their father/mother/child that God should have done something to stop it. Try to think of it this way. dally want to be controlled by God like a marionette?  Do you want to have free will or not? Would you give up your right to daily choice for a lemming-like existence? Are you willing to give up making any decisions to become robot-like? I don't think so and that is what would have to happen for all the ills of this world to be stopped.
