Have you ever heard that phrase, “If God leads you to it, He’ll lead you through it?”
I have, and I find it bunk. Here are my reasons:
- In the beginning was the Garden of Eden. We opted out.
- After we left the Garden of Eden and moved to the world of free will, God did not lead us to it, we walked right into it. “It” being illness, car accidents, war, and so much more.
- However, God is leading you through it. Remember the story of the footprints? You look back and there’s only one set of footprints. You aren’t walking it alone, the Lord is carrying you. And no, you may not feel it now, but you may see it later.
- The Lord cries with us, grieves with us, and wants only the best for us.
- All good things come from the Lord. Things that do not come from the Lord: cancer, unemployment, death, divorce, or so much more.
The phrase I appreciate, “The Lord didn’t do it, but He’s there to see you through it.”
Which leads me to my most request prayer, “Thy will, not my will. Amen!”
Morale of this story: They might be hard to see, darn near invisible, practically buried under dread, fear, anxiety, or sadness, but the Lord’s Love surrounds you like a cozy and warm blanket on a cold winter’s night. Sometimes it even comes in the form of friends, family, and doctors. No need to blame the Lord for your troubles, If you are in need, please reach out.
