Are You Reaching for the wrong things?

Have you ever thought to consider that the very thing your reaching for and can't seem to get be the very thing God is protecting your heart from? If you are a parent and you were cooking and you saw your toddler reaching to feel on top of the stove the first thing you would do would grab your child to safety and then your next move would be to remove all things of harm out of their way. Well my friend when you think about it that's the very thing God does in most cases because his job is to protect us and keep us from reach of harm's way and he very well will not allow his child to get hurt but sometimes because a toddler cannot see how something that captures his attention so greatly would harm him eventually he will venture back only to get a little nip of heat on his finger tips, and what could a little nip could be a major lesson to the toddler and we all know experience is the best teacher. I say this my friend because this has to be a reminder to us when we do not get that promotion we want,the loan was not approve for that dream house you wanted, that relationship that you have been holding on to but it just cannot seem to get right, or that great job you always wanted and you were sure that the interviewer was certain to pick you...although these things did not come to pass you must still be encouraged because what God has for you it is only for you. I often indulge myself in 1 Corinthians 2:9 However it is written “No eye has seen, no ear have heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”. So I tell you this in closing everything you are going through was aloud by God so that he could bring you to a place to trust him and prepare you for a much greater blessing he has in store, your life was already planned out and in your future because you continued to trust and love him and just like a parent when everything is done and the meal is set before you to enjoy you will see that it was well worth the wait and while you were trying to reach in the pot prematurely you learned how to get this disappointed and hurt and you took it in as a life lesson so its best to wait on God for guidance because he will never fell you nor forsake you.....God Bless
