It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

All situations and circumstances of believers are foreseen by God and though sin has brought chaos and destruction into the world, God has provided a way out these situations through His word, for those who operate according to His principles. There is no such thing as luck or by chance. Life is about choices and consequences and the sovereignty of God. God is the One who created time, He lives outside of time and He has established our times knowing the end as well as the beginning. That is who God is, the Creator and Sustainer of all that is on heaven and earth. God made this world perfect for mankind to live an abundant life but they rejected God and sin entered the world. God in His love, mercy and grace made a way for humanity to be redeemed though it would be at a great price to Him, the life of His Son Jesus.
God sees and have foreseen all that we will do and experience and nothing will take Him by surprise. In His loving kindness God has provided all we need to be successful and to fulfill our purpose, which is to reflect His image and to show His love on the earth. Even while living in a fallen world system and though we have an adversary that comes to oppose and antagonize us, God has provided a way of escape from every snare and attack through His word.
Romans 8:28-30 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover, whom He predestined, these He also called: whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified these He also glorified.
God has provided for every person to be victorious in life. The problem is not with God because He has made provision in every circumstance. The problem is that many people do not know how to navigate their situations and circumstances through love and trust in the word of God. Every true believer has been born again into the family of God and the kingdom of God and though they may be children of God, some have little or no knowledge of their authority and the power that they have through the Holy Spirit have provided a way out of temptation.
God has foreseen and predestined every true believer and has called them out of darkness. He has made them righteous, that is in right standing with God through the blood of Jesus, and now they are glorious in the eyes of God. Though they may not be perfect in all their actions and will be tempted, God sees every true believer in Christ and there is no darkness in Him so we can stand righteous before God. This world’s system would keep us attached to those old labels that we wore before we knew Christ but we are a new creation in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
The God and Creator of this universe has promised to provide a way out of every temptation, failure, disappointment or catastrophe. God has provided a way of escape but so many lose heart and give up because they lack an understanding of God’s love for them and His word. Some people allow their pursuits and comfort in life to rise above God’s word and His purpose. They are looking for ways out of their situations according to this fallen system and some feel betrayed by God because of their problems. Some blame God saying He is the reason they are going through hard times or they are angry at God for not protecting them and their families from harm. They lack a true understanding of God’s word and His principles and their minds are trained in the world’s way of thinking and not according to God’s word, His kingdom living and His love for humanity.
God made a perfect world and then death and destruction into the world because of sin that was not God it was mankind’s choice. God in His mercy and grace provided another way for mankind to return to Him in fellowship and to obtain our original purpose through faith in His Son Jesus and again it is a choice for every person to make, to believe and pursue God’s love and His kingdom or reject it. Many people are still blinded by the lies of the world and do not see the light of God’s word and His love to bring truth and life to this world. Many people do not know the true God they only know the stories they were told by their families and society which have become the “gods” of their traditions. Some people lack a knowledge of the love the Almighty God has for humanity. They flounder and struggle when problems and adversity come because they do not know how to operate in the truth and God’s love or how to navigate their lives according to His kingdom principles.
True followers of Christ must renew their minds and change the way they think and look at situations and circumstances if they are to live victoriously in this world. Some people are barely getting by in life but God wants us to live an abundantly life to reflect His goodness and love in the earth. That is done only by changing our thoughts and perspectives to line up with His word. Jesus the example for all true followers, the one who gave His life so others may live. We can allow the Holy Spirit to lead us through difficult situations to die to self that we may intercede for others. To allow our natural lives to be used as light in a dark world so others may see His light of His love and be drawn to His saving grace.
When a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies it is no longer seen in its unique created state and has lost its form and begins to take on a new form by which will sprout and reproduced new seeds. That is why those who love their lives in its original fallen form will stay as a single grain refusing to die to self-centeredness and live for God. Those who chose to die to selfishness and pride will live according to their true purpose and become intercessors and catalysts for the living that their see an example of God’s love in the earth that they too may receive Christ as their Savior.
John 12:24-25 Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. NKJV
When we see all of our situations and conditions are provide for through God’s love, His providence and for His eternal purpose, then we are able to utilize those hurtful situations as platforms for the Holy Spirit, who is in us, to intercede for the people God has allowed to press in that the oil of His Spirit will flow as living water. Instead of being angry for all they are going through, God’s people should humble themselves before Him. To ask God to direct their steps and guard their hearts that they may understand those God allow to persecute them have found Favor in God’s sight. Because God has allowed this situation to press into the life of His child that the oil of God’s Spirit may flow through us in love and we can pray, Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing, they do not know we are children of the Most-High King.
Luke 23:34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” And they divided His garments and cast lots. NKJV
