When you sit down to think and remember all the miraculous signs and wonders that God has performed since time memorial, then you will be amazed. It all begins from His amazing beautiful creation, order was there from the beginning, paying attention to detail, nothing was left to chance. He did not create the animals first, when the earth was formless! He didn’t make the fish and wonder where they will go! No He starts everything with order and then everything else falls into place. We need to borrow leaf from God’s strategic plan and be people who are planners and not just do things just because they need to be done! God waited until He created everything else, before He made man, meaning He didn’t want man to come into a world, where it wasn’t perfect! Many of us, myself included have made plans and done things that shouldn’t have being done at the time they were being made, Teenage pregnancies, alcohol and drug abuse, among many other things. The years when we were reckless, YOLO was our middle name, we didn’t care! everything seemed okay, but unfortunately that was and still is the lie of the devil. To make people comfortable in their sin, and to make us see as if nothing is a big deal when it actually is!
Ever thought about the ideal life? your born, go to primary school, high school, college, university, start dating, get married, have kids, they grow up and the cycle continues? If life was this perfect right? This is what should be happening, but it doesn’t why? because sin entered into the world and because of sin, so many bad things keep happening, so many people die, so many people don’t have the basic necessities, like food, water and shelter.
Moses threw down the stone tablets that God had made and given unto him, because of the anger he had towards the Israelites for making an idol image that they were worshipping. In his anger, he destroyed the commandments that were made by God Himself but in Exodus 34:1 The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.” Here we see God telling Moses to chisel out (2) other stone tablets because he broke the previous ones. This goes to show us one thing, even if God forgives us for the things that we did wrong, we still have to pay for the consequences. You murdered, well God will still forgive you, but you will still have to serve your sentence in jail. When we do things and don’t get punished, we take advantage of the situation, we don’t appreciate what we have until it is too late!
We need to be grateful that our God isn’t like man, when He forgives, He doesn’t keep reminding us of our past mistakes, He takes us just the way that we are. God’s plans are not ours, nor are His ways ours, however, what we need to be doing is trying to re-align ourselves to His plans so that we don’t keep going in one direction, only to find out that God wasn’t even there in the first place. True, life isn’t all that we plan for, we might be born in a rich family while another is born into a poor family, that doesn’t mean its the end of the world for you, in-fact, it could just be your beginning. Learning to appreciate all that you have, even if it is little, learning to plan, even if you have nothing to plan for! But above all having faith in God because He is the only one who knows our future.
