Seven Reasons Why God Makes Things Increasingly Better For His Children
If things are not getting better in your life, please don’t accept it as God’s plan, God has something better for you. Many of the things people allude to the will of God is actually not the will of God at all. Why? There are about five wills – there is the will of man. Many people die because of the will of man. Many die because of the evil will of another man. There is the will of God which can either be the perfect will of God or the permissive will of God. You need to know when you are operating in the permissive will of God and when you are operating in the perfect will of God. The perfect will of God is as enunciated in his Word and that is the best place to operate. There is also the will of the devil. There is the will of the individual. It is not the will of God that any should perish but people are perishing on a daily basis and going to hell. Whose will is that? Some people even commit suicide. This can never be the will of God. Many people accuse God falsely. A lot of deaths are caused by the carelessness of another person, it can never be the will of God. May you never be a victim of another man’s evil will in the name of Jesus.
- He loves us with an everlasting love. Jer. 31:3, “The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore, with lovingkindness have I drawn thee”. Bear in mind that the Most High has an everlasting love for you. When you wake up every morning, always remind yourself that God loves you with an everlasting love. John 13:1, “Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end”. I have the assurance that whatever God is doing for me is borne out of his love for me, the blessings he bestows upon me are borne out of his love for me and that love is absolute, it is different from the love of man. He doesn’t love me because of what he can get from me, he loves me just the way I am because his nature is love. He wants to bestow on me that which is ultimately beneficial to me. The purpose for which he created me is borne out of his love. Glory to God. God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness – our relationship with God should be borne out of that love that uplifts, that takes us from nothing to something. God makes somebody out of a nobody. That is love. Everlasting love from God the Father; everlasting love from God the Son; “for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”. John 3:16. Each time I meditate on what it cost God to save man, I get baffled. What stopped God from wiping out the Adamic stock? If you know the steps Jesus Christ took to come from divinity to become humanity to the point of dying on the cross; shedding his blood to save man and clear the access so that we can have unlimited access to the holy of holies and have fellowship with our Father. That is God.
- He has glorious plans for us. Jer. 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”. God wants us to make progress, he wants us to enjoy his blessings, he wants our better to become the best. He is the inexhaustible source of everything that is good, so we can depend on him to sustain whatever blessing he is giving us. You cannot liquidate the account of heaven. Not having this understanding can make people draw very little when God has given them a blank cheque. Anything you do for God that is not borne out of love is fake. Any service you render in the kingdom that is not borne out of love for God is fake. Whenever you pray, God looks at your heart first. Many prayers don’t fly because of the iniquity in the heart. The Bible says, If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me”. Psa. 66:18. God has the ability to x-ray everybody’s heart. Do you know that if you can get to a point where your heart is really clean and clear and passionately in love with God, before you even open your mouth to make a request, God will answer. It is his pleasure, it is his will, it is in his nature. He loves you so much that even before you ask, he is ready to give. He wants to bestow upon you that which is ultimately beneficial to you and he has it in abundance. Anything God can give you he has it boundlessly.
