Last week,before I posted my previous entry of this blog..I was in the Jacob's trouble..Jacob's trouble is an emotional and spiritual fight or trouble inside with the Lord..I really had a fight with the Lord about the things that I wish and wanted to have in a day without considering His decision whether He allows it or not.
I voiced out all my innermost ill-feelings to the Lord,why He doesn't give me this and that,and why He never permitted me to fly out of the country that soon..and so many why's ? I'm practically sure,everyone has gone to that point that you question God about the unexpected event in life contrary to what you desire to have and to happen.
Till the day realized me that I should wait and understand God's purpose why He is delaying His promise to me...well,that experienced..I guess just developing my patience and more patience,without knowing that it is one of the best virtue of being a Christian.."Patience".herewith is a nice anecdote that I've got from my roommate,posted on our room's wall..which I believe would ask us what if God?????
What if God couldn't take the time to bless us today because we couldn't take the time to thank Him yesterday?
What if God decided to stop Leading us tomorrow because we didn't follow Him today?
What if we never saw another flower bloom because we grumbled when God sent the Rain?
What if God didn't walk with us today because we failed to recognize it as His day?
What if God took away the Bible tomorrow because we would not read it today?
What if God took away His message because we failed to listen to the messenger?
What if God didn't send His only begotten Son because He wanted us to be prepared to pay the price for sin.
What if the door of the church was closed because we did not open the door of our heart?
What if God stopped loving us and caring for us because we failed to love and care for others?
What if God wouldn't not hear us today because we would not listen to Him?
What if God answered our prayers the way we answer His call to service?
What if God met our needs the way we give Him our lives?
