In Psalm 18, verses 25, through 29, David writes, “To the faithful, you show yourself faithful; to those with integrity you show integrity. To the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd. You rescue the humble, but you humiliate the proud. You light at lamp for me. The Lord, my God, lights up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall.”
These are such inspiring verses from David, I really felt uplifted when I read his writing about how when we have God behind us we can achieve anything. There have been times when I wanted certain thins to happen in my life that were not God’s will, and I felt that my prayers had gone unanswered. Sometimes it takes a very long time for me to see that God knows what is best for me, and that he doesn’t put things in my life that he knows will be harmful to me in the end.
But when something is God’s will in my life, there is nothing that can stop him, and I have had an example of that recently. I have been recently blessed, and I was kind of awestruck about the way that it came about. It was not something I was expecting to happen, but it was clear by the way that everything came together that this was God’s will for me, because the obstacles cleared out of the way and things just happened as if by some grand plan (which of course was God’s plan).
This event in my life has really showed me the difference between God’s will and my own will. There have been times in my life where I wanted something and despite the obstacles that came up I kept plowing forward; in one event, I now look back and realize that those obstacles were God telling me that this was not right for me, though at the time I could not accept it.
With what has happened in my life recently it has really shown me the difference in God’s plan versus my self will. Most instances in my life are not as dramatic as the two I compared above, but it is nice to be able to compare the ‘feel’ of something that is happening due to God’s plan for my life versus something I was determined to have at any cost despite the fact that it just was not right for me, but I plowed forward any way.
