IF GOD BLESSED YOU WITH IT, HE WONT TAKE IT AWAY.

Another thing we need to unlearn is that God can and will take away something that he released to us.


The blessings of the Lord make us rich. No one can bless us like God can. Although we see the people that blessed us, it’s God that placed it on their hearts to do so. God’s blessings make us feel loved by Him. It gives us a tingling feeling on the inside that can’t be compared to anything we’ve ever experienced.


As we go throughout our journey we understand that there is nothing we can do to make God bless us. He blesses us because we are his children. As our father, he wants to see us happy. He loves to make us smile. Our works don’t make us deserving of his blessings, they just make him proud to see that we are not selfish with the gifts he has given us.


I have heard people say on so many different occasions that if God blesses you with something, he won’t take it away. I tried to convince myself on several occasions that if I no longer had the thing that I believed God blessed me with then I must have gotten it wrong. Maybe it wasn't a blessing and instead maybe it was a curse. I was reminded of Job 1:21 ‘the Lord gives and the Lord takes away.’


Job served God with everything in him. He stood on the Word of God and nothing could shake him. Then the enemy asked God for his permission to shake the foundation of what Job had always stood on. God granted the enemy access to everything but Job's soul. God allowed everything that Job had been blessed with to be taken from him. God believed in Job but Job had no idea he had been offered up as a sacrifice, but he remained faithful even when he didn't understand. In the end, God restored everything that was lost but Job still had to go through the process.


We want to only think of God as a gentle loving father. But just like we have to allow our own children to experience things to grow up, God has to do the same with us. He is not speaking harm over our lives but he will allow us to experience some of the negative things that rise up in our lives. If God can see that allowing us to go through something will strengthen us where he needs us strengthened, then he allows it to manifest. This doesn’t make him an evil God, it just confirms that our thoughts are not his thoughts and our ways are not his ways.


So the next time you lose something that you know God gave you, ask yourself how can God get the glory out of me going through this?

I know that God's got my best interest in mind so I try to say to myself, "God's got something better." He created me so He knows what I need better than I know what I want. I am also learning to praise Him in the midst of my struggle. I have found that when I praise God, whether it be through singing along with a song, lifting my hands in surrender or adoration in my prayers, I feel grateful and thankful that he has never let me go. I should have been dead and gone many times over and yet he kept me. So no matter what, God is good all the time and all the time, God is…

My thoughts are, this is AWESOME and needs to be on Facebook, so more people can read. What an interpretation/revelation of sometimes loosing what God has blessed you with. Powerful.

It's very hard to release something that we believe God blessed us with. We constantly pray for him to turn it around. We pray believing that the struggle we are experiencing is not part of the plan. So when he doesn't change the situation we feel let down. We just have to recognize that we have to change the way we see our trials.
