Everyone will come across some unexpected and unacceptable matters or disasters in our life of believing in the Lord. At this time, people often don’t know what they should do to conform to the Lord’s will. It is easy for them to act as they like. In reality, no matter what happens, what each of us should do is to wait, seek and obey God’s will, which is a manifestation of having true faith in God as well as one of His requirements of us.
Just as Almighty God says, “All things under God’s arrangements and sovereignty obey natural laws, and if you resolve to let God arrange and dictate everything for you, you should learn to wait, you should learn to seek, you should learn to submit. This is the attitude that every person who wants to submit to God’s authority must take, the basic quality that every person who wants to accept God’s sovereignty and arrangements must possess. To hold such an attitude, to possess such a quality, you must work harder; and only thus can you enter into the true reality.” “Those who seek to know God are able to set aside their desires, are willing to submit to God’s sovereignty and God’s arrangements; they try to be the kind of people who are submissive to God’s authority and satisfy God’s desire. Such people live in light, live in the midst of God’s blessings; they will surely be commended by God.” “If one’s attitude toward God’s sovereignty over human fate is active, then when one looks back upon one’s journey, when one truly comes to grips with God’s sovereignty, one will more earnestly desire to submit to everything that God has arranged, will have more of the determination and confidence to let God orchestrate one’s fate, to stop rebelling against God. For one sees that when one does not comprehend fate, when one does not understand God’s sovereignty, when one gropes forward willfully, staggering and tottering, through the fog, the journey is too difficult, too heartbreaking. So when people recognize God’s sovereignty over human fate, the smart ones choose to know it and accept it, to bid farewell to the painful days when they tried to build a good life with their own two hands, instead of continuing to struggle against fate and pursue their so-called life goals in their own manner. When one has no God, when one cannot see Him, when one cannot clearly recognize God’s sovereignty, every day is meaningless, worthless, miserable. Wherever one is, whatever one’s job is, one’s means of living and the pursuit of one’s goals bring one nothing but endless heartbreak and irrelievable suffering, such that one cannot bear to look back. Only when one accepts the ’s sovereignty, submits to His orchestrations and arrangements, and seeks true human life, will one gradually break free from all heartbreak and suffering, shake off all the emptiness of life.” (This passage from the church of Almighty God, Eastern lightning)
Fromwe can see that God is the Ruler of all things and He controls all things. When we entrust the matters to Him and let nature take its course, we will see the deeds of God. In fact, He has made the best arrangements for everyone. So in the face of difficulties, we need to truly believe the authority of God’s sovereignty over all things, patiently wait for His enlightenment and guidance and submit to His orchestrations and arrangements. This way we will be liberated and released, free of bondage. Just as Job went through trials, he truly believed all that he had was bestowed by God, and that rewarding and taking away came from God, so he didn’t make any demands or struggle. He stood witness for God. In the end, he completely lived before God free and released, gained His blessings, free from Satan’s disturbance and affliction. Only then did he live out a valuable and meaningful life.
We should take Job as a role model. From now on, we are willing to enter into the truth together and seek God’s will in the environments God sets for us in daily life. Praise God!
