As we all know, cars are designed for land transportation. But, if a car had a mind of its own and it decided to shift from travelling on land to flying or sailing, we all know that disaster would follow. The wheels of a car are made to roll on land, but when it deviates from the very object that it was designed for, namely the ground, and begins driving off a cliff or jumping in water, it will only hurt itself and others.
“I could stand here and tell you what I used to be
I could tell of the change that’s come over me
for the Lord shed His Grace when He died on the tree
So I’ll let the blood Jesus shed speak for me
God moves in many different ways. He uses circumstances for us to know He exist. Sometimes I tend to over analyze situations when things go differently from what I expected. Some people would react differently from what the said norm is. And portion of them would ask why did God allow things to happen to good people?
This question triggers a lot in my mind when I read it last 2 years ago. And it forever changed my heart and the way I play.
I’m not a protégé. I wasn’t born with the gift of playing the piano in my fingertips. But because I have Godly parents, influenced by a God-led missionary, they enrolled my sister and I to piano lessons which we had to attend every week, whether we like it or not. Consistent – my parents were. After two years of attending weekly lessons, I wanted to give up. I asked – no – I begged my parents not to let me continue taking piano lessons. But they didn’t give in.
God has a purpose to each and everyone who lives in this world.
One of His great purpose is to save people from their sins. That was why He manifested in the flesh to taste death & sufferings at the Cross just to obey the will of His Father. He offered Himself as a Holy Lamb without blemish, He was spotless – for a perfect atonement for all our sins. He was not willing that any should perish (II Pet. 3:9)! OH HOW GREAT THE LOVE OF GOD IS!
