“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
If you can accept this truth and make it your life’s motto, you will have reached a height in Me that will take you through many hard places in your life, and bring you out triumphantly.
Many of My children think that Satan has more power than I, but they are wrong. There is absolutely nothing that he can do that doesn’t have to pass through My hand. Take everything that happens to you — the good and the bad as though it is coming directly from My hand.
But Heaven does have its rules, and the rules of Heaven are unalterable. They cannot be changed — except by Me. They are like the Laws of the Medes and Persians.
Satan is a legalist. He lived here in Heaven for eons of time, and he knows these laws. He uses them to his advantage. It is through these laws that he operates and brings catastrophes upon the souls of men. He knows that “the soul that sinneth it shall surely die” (Ezekiel 18:4). He knows that “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7). So he brought sin into the world even the sin of disobedience, and thereby, he brought death.
Then he caused people to sow tares in their life, knowing that they would reap tares.
But when you come to Me with your death sentence, and the tares you have reaped by your mistakes, and humbly repent for breaking the Laws of Heaven, I can take the broken pieces of your life in My loving hands, and make an altogether new, beautiful, and better person out of you. You might even be able to thank Me that I permitted you to make those mistakes, because you wouldn’t be what you are today if it wasn’t for the things you did, which humbled you, and made you a kinder person.
What many call an accident is really a planned interruption. What some call a tragedy is an opportunity for a new beginning. What some call an early death is a graduation and promotion without years of toil and many of life’s turmoils.
We call “long life” a blessing. And it is, because I am merciful, I extend more years to those who need more time for Me to perfect them.
So thank Me for everything! I make no mistakes!
Give Me your life. Trust Me! You will not be disappointed in this world, and in the world to come!
