Things are not just happening to you…..they are happening for you.
I would like to start by posing a question. Have you ever been in a season where things are happening, & it seems they just keep coming? Have you ever raised your hand & told God you want to be used by Him?
I believe when we make this request, God begins to mold us & shape us back to the original image we were created in Genesis 1:26 & during this process we experience situations that eventually strengthen us, equip us, mature us, & guide us to the point where God desires us to be used. I’m reminded of the story of Joseph beginning in Genesis 37 & how things began to happen to him…being thrown into a pit, being sold & hated by family, being lied on, being imprisoned falsely, & the list goes on. In the end, we see that things were not just happening to him but they were happening for him. Those things had to happen to him in order for him to rightfully be in place to save millions of people.
The best examples ever were the things that happened to Jesus…for you & for me!!! Isaiah 53:5
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed……..Embrace it all …brother & sisters, count It all joy when you fall into various situations James 1… Things are not just happening to you…they are happening for you. Remember that.
