Most times as humans we tend to act in our way not knowing or having the exact limit to our actions, this ranges from our thinking to our behavior and action but God being so faithful and true as a creator regulate our ways even before we start our day.
Daniel 2:21 says
He controls the times and the seasons; he makes and unmakes kings; it is he who gives wisdom and understanding. Daniel 2:22 He reveals things that are deep and secret; he knows what is hidden in darkness, and he himself is surrounded by light.
Truthfully, God is God because He works in ways in which we will never be able and shouldn’t be able to comprehend. We will constantly be amazed by HIM as it should be.
Psalm 46:10 says
‘’Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
God forbids if I could think for a second that God did not hold the heart of man or his footsteps, what would become of this world? It would have been a place of constant problem or chaos far worse than what we see today. Read Psalm 125:2. My thinking went deep for many years it bought me to this conclusion that before our first breath God has already regulated our lives. Just when you think that that extra slice of bread will justify your hunger but in God’s regulation you shouldn’t have that slice,God alone finds a way to order your ways or use another individual or even your situation to regulate your ways even to your food intake.
Proverbs 16:9 says “A man's heart deviseth his way: But the LORD directeth his steps.”
There is a popular saying that “every disappointment is a blessing”. Just when you think you have deprived someone from anything by your own will or thinking, do not rejoice because God’s Will must be done, His will must be satisfied before any other in other words God’s regulation in a persons life supersede all.
Knowing this makes life less of a burden , so before you go so deep in feeling sorry for yourself in an unfortunate situation or before you become bitter and depressed when you find yourself in a bad or unhappy state, take a minute and pause then remember GOD is the great controller. No matter how life may play out if God has willed you to a particular thing or situation it must surely manifest. A good example of this is the story of Joseph which I love so much. At the end, Joseph made a statement to his brothers in genesis 50:19-20(please read).
God knows the end even before it began because He dictate the outcome before it even started.
The fact that our Universe has such a perfect balance between the expansion rate and the energy density — today, yesterday, and billions of years ago — is a clue that our Universe really is finely tuned. For someone who does not believe or accept that there is a creator would ask who or what fine tuned the universe so perfectly?
Some persons might think that if God is the regulator, why will HE then allow us to feel so much pain and hurt as He regulate our life? I would say no one can understand why God has allowed us to feel what we feel but I know that HE who created feelings like pain, fear, joy knows in depth far more than we can ever know , so God feels more than we have experienced. Like I would always say we are opportunists and privileged creatures to exist and feel or experience what we go through in life. It brings us to the knowledge that we can’t do without our creator and this glorifies God.
In psalm 94:19 says “In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul.”
Let’s look through the Bible at Romans 9:14-23 and Matthew 10:29-31
“What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will, he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: and that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,”.
Romans 9:14-23 KJV( please read the amplified bible version for clear understanding). We will come to understand that God who created Pharaoh raise him to have a hardened mind for the purpose that He will show His power to His people. God will do as He pleases because He is the creator , we should not make a case because our capacity to reason , understand or feel came from the creator so why would we be against God’s actions in our life when we only know a tiny dust of anything. Just because we have been given the fruit of good and bad does not give us any power to question against God’s way towards us.
Matthew 10:29-31 AMP
“Are not two little sparrows sold for a copper coin? And yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered [for the Father is sovereign and has complete knowledge]. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.”
Brethren we will constantly stand amazed for every matter or sound that moves has a meaning and is regulated by God. If God the creator’s Law or commandment can be summarized and interpreted-as LOVE for Him and our neighbors than I would say we are the luckiest thing to exist and experience life controlled by God because God is in control and He has a plan inside every plan.
This is why we must constantly try to remember that we are tools in the hand of our Creator and He will use us to carry out His will on earth and this could be anything like correcting our vices by using another individual and many more just for the glory of His name. I am tempted to say the story of life and all is not focused on us but on God because only HIM matters and nothing else.
We must constantly pray that though we walk blindly in our daily activities not knowing when to stop, slow down, hasten up and why we offend ourselves in our daily life that God should as He always does ,fine tune us to His will which is always the best. As the flesh war against us may the will of God prevail and may we constantly seek Gods face to regulate our life. Amen…..
