We often pray for the will of God to be done upon our life, but more often than not, we’re usually not ready for the outcome. Trials may prompt one to imagine of the life they deserve or rather where they ought to be; as a result, a person may assume that He or She is ready to move to the next chapter of their life whereas they’re operating from a place of anger, heartbreak, stress or disappointment.
Steps made out of pain are not only dangerous to those around you, but also self destructive. Unforgiveness will cause one to hurt innocent people unknowingly, and the more you hurt people, the worse you become. When you opt to do it your way rather than God’s way, you inflict more pain on yourself because you’re forcing things to suit your expectations and proving a point to people who don’t even care about you. You don’t have to live a lie and depressed just to impress people who will eventually abandon you when things fall apart. Don’t strain to live beyond your means to avoid mockery from family or friends. Don’t kill yourself trying to fit in the lives of people who take advantage of your miseries. God’s will for you is that you live a content, peaceful and joyful life with those around you, not a bitter life.
Hebrews 12:14-17 Esau sold his rights as the elder son for a single meal. Don’t allow a temporary state to lead you out of God’s will while you have the grace to wait. As you pray for His will, remember to pray for more grace to carry you through the waiting. The ways of God do not have shortcuts. He’s a God of order. 1 Corinthians 14:40 But all things must be done appropriately and in an orderly manner.
Therefore my brothers and sisters, whenever you pray, ask God to clear your imaginations and allow him to demolish all the castles you’ve built in the air. He will refill you with grace. 2 Corinthians: 9-10 ” but his answer was, My grace is all you need, for my power is strongest when you are weak.
The will of God is not what you expect from Him, (what you have at the back of your mind) but what He wants you to endure until you’re able to see the situation through his eyes. Sometimes you will remain where you are, till you’re able to see your enemies, oppressors or “terrible relatives” as God sees them. You must be willing to let the pain and release all those who hurt you. He will not let you move until you forgive and reconcile with people. Once you’ve healed, You gain God’s trust hence aligned to his will.
Hebrews 12:12, lift up your tired hands, then, and strengthen your tired knees! Keep walking on straight paths, so that the lame foot may not be disabled, but instead be healed.
