Key: We live our lives the way we like most times, thinking we can sort things out ourselves.
We make decisions based on our own view of life. We do things based on other people’s experiences and at the end of it all things don’t work out as well as they ought to.
There is one thing I want us to remember and that is we were created and a creator always has a function fixed to every creature.
Now imagine a refrigerator trying to be a kettle, it’s not going to fulfill any purpose. It will keep getting confused as to why it isn’t hot when it was designed to be cold.
You are a creature and you can’t live your life based on what you think is right..
God has a plan laid down for you before you were born and you can only know the plan if you ask him. Remember his plans are good and it has a beautiful result.
Reflection: God has good plans for you, just ask him for directions.
