As humans, we are finite. It means we have full of limitations. The length of our days is limited. Our strength has certain capacity and even our minds don’t know everything and don’t understand many things. Because of these, we have a lot of questions in our lives. Many times we ask, “why do bad things happen to us?” The answer is, only God knows for He knows better than us.
Isaiah 55:8-9 said, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
So what do we need to do when bad things and fearful circumstances come into our lives?
1. Seek God first – We need to stop seeking ourselves.
2. Trust Him fully – We need to stop doubting and worrying.
3. Observe and Obey – We need to stop disobeying God.
4. Praise and thank Him – We need to stop complaining and murmuring.
Have a God-directed New Year!
