Romans 12:2, Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will.
God is what He is. He knows everything, even the things that are hidden from us. See Job 1:20–21, At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said; Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised. See also Jeremiah 31:3–4, The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving kindness. I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful.
The Lord says He loved you with an everlasting love. He builds and rebuilds if need be, trust His love. See Lamentations 3:22–23, Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Bitterness is the greatest barriers to friendship with God. Be thankful, God uses everything for good in our lives. It is true people do often blame God without saying it clearly for hurts caused by someone, our sins or even natural. These create more rift with God. So be thankful all the ways.
Every time you trust God’s wisdom and do whatever He says, even when you do not understand the reasons, you deepen your friendship with God.
Read Psalm 103:1–5, Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits–who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like eagle’s. Read also Psalm 105:1–5, Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done. Sing to Him, sing praise to Him; tell of all His wonderful acts. Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. Remember the wonders He has done, His miracles, and the judgments He pronounced. Read Psalm 145:1–3, I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. See Psalm 150, Praise the Lord. Praise God in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His acts of power; praise Him for His surpassing greatness. Praise Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.
God’s love is forgiving toward those who have rebelled again Him. His mercy and compassion reach out to us even in our sin, so be thankful. See Genesis 1:26–31, Then God said, Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground. Then God said, I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground–everything that has breath of life in it–I give every green plant for food. And it was so. God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning–the sixth day.
God was not forced to do any of these. It was because of His own loving nature that He created people and blessed them. So please be thankful.
Thanks and God bless you more.
Happy new year 2020.
