This question may or may not surprise you or you’re that one person whose like, hell yeah! Why does it seem like they are always getting the upper hand and yet you’re always getting the shorter end of the stick?
Unfortunately, I don’t have a reason why this is the case but it is something that constantly occurs in our society. First question to ask yourself, what qualifies a person to being a bad person? Do they lie, cheat, or manipulate to getting something that they want or are they just very strong worker that would do anything and everything to be number one or are they born into society with a silver spoon?
For you as a Christ follower, this question may burden you and you may ask God why is this happening? Why hasn’t my harvest come yet? Again I don’t have the answer. But sitting here on my couch alone, I decided that my mind has been running its wheels on this topic and thought it would be good idea to jot down my thoughts.
Take a look at Psalms 66:10-12, it says, “For you, God, tested us; you refined us as silver is refined. You lured us into a trap; you placed burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our heads; we went though the fire and water; but you brought us out to abundance.”
Now why would I choose a God that would test me, put me through trials, place burdens on my back, let men walk right on top of men and look down on me, what’s the point of all of this? Am I stuck in a cycle? It’s crazy to one min want and pray for something to happen and yet get passed over and see it given to someone who is undeserving.
What am I getting at you ask? Honestly, we are not privy to seeing the bigger picture like God sees it. That loan you got denied for, or that date you didn’t get with that special person doesn’t mean you aren’t qualified. It just means, it wasn’t for you and there’s something better coming for you. God allows us to be tested because he wants to see if we will actually turn to him for guidance or try to take matters into our own hands.
This will happen multiple times until God feels as if you’ve learned the lesson. What’s the lesson? “Lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”- Proverbs 3:5-6. You may think that God may have forgotten you but he hasn’t, He’s still with you. Abraham and Sarah are prime examples of being passed over in not being parents early in their lives. #Faithfultilltheend
My friends, life doesn’t end when one door closes, it just provides another opportunity for another door to be opened.
