ďThat we may do those good works which God predestined for usÖĒ Eph 2: 10
God has preordained and planned before hand what your purpose is on the earth. And He has used the situations in your life up to this very moment to teach you and prepare you for His purposes.
We canít see clearly what God sees. It is only after we pass through a situation that we see it clearly. We can then look down from a higher perspective and see what good came out of it, what we learned, and how God will use it. I know how it is to be in the middle of a bad situation. We wonder what good thing could possibly come out of this! At that point, we can not see what God sees. That is why all along the way and in every situation, we must learn to listen to His voice. His ways are so much higher than our ways. He has a plan that we canít see so we must listen to His voice so we will choose the right way, the high way.
I believe God sets up situations just for learning purposes. He wants us to learn from our past mistakes, so we will make different choices and take the right path the next time. Paul said that if we take the path which He planned ahead of time, we will live the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live. This does not mean that once we learn to walk on the highway, we will not encounter difficult situations. It does mean that we will always have a clear path to walk on during those difficult times. Thatís why we go through hard times so we can learn how to identify God ways and Godís path that leads us though the valleys and hardships of life.
