September 20, 2021 - We're The Reason

Whenever we feel abandoned, or feel that his promises are not working for us, we must stop shaking our fists at the heavens and accusing God of defaulting on his promises, because it will always be inside our own hearts that we find the cause.

Steven A. Cramer, "Armed With Righteousness"

Every blessing we receive, it is because we obeyed a given law upon which that blessing was predicated. It is cause and effect. It is the law of the harvest....when we plant corn, we reap corn, not watermelon. It is eternal physics. 1+1 will always equal 2.

Our Heavenly Father is bound by an eternal order that says He will keep His word when we keep ours. Or else He ceases to be God. We can trust in that. We should trust in that.

So when we don't receive a blessing that we so desperately need, it is not because God is holding back. It is because we either haven't obeyed a certain law sufficiently or we haven't yet learned what we needed to. It's as simple as that.

Our Father doesn't sit up in the heavens just arbitrarily deciding who gets what. He doesn't say to Himself, "I don't feel like giving anything out today so I'm just going to watch". Can you imagine the utter chaos if He didn't intervene?

He has a purpose for each one of us. His ONLY reason for existing is to help you and me, each one of us personally, fulfill our own purpose here on earth. And as we take the steps forward towards that purpose, He gives us line upon line, here a little, there a little.

And if we look close enough, we will see His hand in our lives.
