Seeing God In Everything

It is easy to see God in the good things in life.  It's even easy to praise Him for all His blessings.  But, if we could learn to see God in everything that happens to us, that would be a major breakthrough in our Christian lives.

Do you want to become more Christ-like?  If you do, then learn to ask God what He wants to teach you through your difficulties rather than asking Him why you are having to experience tough things.  Learn to see God in everything. 

God always has a purpose in allowing everything that touches our lives.  Sometimes, God takes me through difficult times because He sees something in my life that needs some pruning - some cutting away.  He sometimes allows deep hurts so I will rely on no one or no thing except Him.

When we come to a place where we can truly say, "Your will, not mine Lord,"  then He will teach us.  He will give us what we need to endure our trials and He will bring us out on the other side changed into one who looks more like Jesus.  Isn't that what we desire - to be more Christ-like?  (I confess, it is an ongoing process in my life.) 

Because God is Sovereign, we must learn to see Him in everything.  "One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all." (Ephesians 4:5-6)

  1. Kay I would be good to recognize God in bad times as well as good times. I am praying for God to open my eyes to His work during the difficult times, even the small ones. I want to practice on the small ones so I can see Him when it is something big. Thanks Kay, Jean
