Are You Missing Out on What God Has for You?

Romans 8:28 NASB
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

FOMO1

Most likely if we are not attuned to God’s purpose for life, our misplaced expectations may easily lead us into frustration and anger. Even though life is good because God is a living being who made it so, circumstances sometimes stink beyond measure. And if we answer the above question through the eyes of physical accomplishments, we will have missed God’s original intention for all of us.

God’s long-term goal is to prepare you for eternity. You have been adopted into His family and His desire for you is to prepare you to rule and minister in the same manner Jesus Christ displayed while on earth. He wants you ready for greater service in the family business: The Kingdom of God.

Satan’s big lie to Adam and Eve was to place doubt into their minds that God cannot be trusted. That God’s plan deliberately denies one from truly experiencing life’s good things. This is a lie that Satan still propagates throughout the world.

However, God’s grace is greater than Man’s distorted expectations. The Holy Spirit uses the stinking circumstances we often find ourselves encamped in and produces fruit through the ordeal. While creating a spiritual masterpiece within us, she likewise continually allows us a taste of heavenly riches to remind us that God is always with us.

God knows your needs and desires. He also knows your strengths and how to best display them in this world and next for His kingdom. He uniquely designed you for a purpose. Some if not most of the time, we have to lose everything we have and believe before we reach a place in life of real contentment. When we do, no matter what the circumstances, we will then experience Christ’s peace and joy.

Meanwhile, we are all on a journey of faith. Learning to trust God in the large and small decisions of life. Overtime, we will know that God has the best intentions in heart for you and me. Whether or not we experience our hearts desires in this world is no longer the issue. We know whatever we think we may miss out in this age, awaits us in the new age to come.

  1. Did you really mean to say “she likewise continually allows us a taste of heavenly riches” in this post?
    That is totally unbiblical!

    • Dave,

      Just saw your comment regarding the feminine pronoun I used in reference to the Holy Spirit. Sorry for not being more expedient but I only blog on weekends. So, it may take a few days for comment replies.

      No, “she” is not a typo but a strong reference to the glory of God who is neither male nor female. The concept is more Biblical than many may realize. Rather than believe me, I attached several posts from others who have study into the subject and present the material in an easy to understand format. If you want more technical reads, you can google the scholarly articles for your own personal in depth Bible study. But this will give you a good overview.

      Again, you will find that I do not always refer to the Holy Spirit as “she” but also as a “he”. The English language limits the original meaning of the third person of the Trinity. So, you will find that I will interchangeably call the Holy Spirit “HE” and “SHE”.

      Thanks for your question. And for your voluntary offer to correct my grammar. You have to realize I’m married to an English major who also finds my grammar at times challenging. But after 30+ years of marriage, she has come to understand and appreciate the concepts, thoughts, and heart of the topics rather than my writing skills. I guess I am a failed product of the educational system. I’m not a perfectionist, grammar is my weakness (therefore I rely on HIM more in my weakness than anyone may realize), and depend on the software system catch the larger inaccuracies. I hope you don’t hold my low, level grammar skills against me but extend the same grace others do for my attempt to share life’s experience with others.

      Your Brother in Christ,

      Mike
