God doesn't always get what He wants. Does that shock you?

He wills that ALL people should be saved. "God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth". 1 Timothy 2:3,4

However, He chose to create man with free will choice, so that those who came to Him would choose Him and have an intimate love relationship with Him. He didn't want us to be robots who had no choice. That relationship would be worthless.

He told us that not many would be saved. "Wide is the way that leads to destruction, narrow the way to salvation and few there are that find it." Matthew 7:13,14 " " Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able." Luke 13:24

When teaching us how to pray, the very first thing He taught us to pray was that, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven". In His kingdom, made up of those who have given Him their lives and now live to serve Him, there, His will is done. In the world, mankind does as he pleases, not as God wills.

It is true that nothing happens here without God's "allowing" it. He is indeed the ultimate power. But it is also true that He does not always get His will in this world. Just because He allows something to happen does not mean He willed it so. When He made us free will creatures, He committed Himself to abide by the choices we would make.

The choices we make have consequences, good and bad. At times, some one else's choices have consequences that adversely affect our lives, such as someone driving after drinking alcohol and injuring or killing someone we love.

If we are in Him and walking faithfully, praying without ceasing as He taught us, sometimes we see His divine intervention in the events of man and we should rejoice and praise Him greatly for it! 1 Thessalonians 5:17 I believe this has saved us and our loved ones from many bad things.

There are times when our choices have brought us to a desperate place of consequence. I know people who have given Him their lives and He has divinely lifted those earthly consequences from them instantly, as well as saving their souls. Most often, we must walk through the consequences ourselves. This path affords us so many opportunities to grow in the fruits of the spirit and in our walk with Him.

As we walk through the consequences of our choices, cleaving tightly to Him, we learn to love Him even more as He daily supports and comforts us. This path also teaches us to make choices in keeping with His Word in the Bible so that we don't have to live with more painful consequences, whereas if He had instantly removed the consequence, we might not have learned the lesson - that His ways are always best for us, not laws to restrict our joy, but to ensure us happy lives. And let's not forget that He promises that all things will work together for our good, when we have given our lives to Him and are living faithfully. Even though it is a bad thing we are going through, when we are His and co-operate with His working in our lives, He will change it for our good. Romans 8:28

If anyone dies and spends eternity in hell, it will be their choice, not God's will for them. Hell was created for the devil and his angels, not man. God the Father has done everything to woo us to Himself and eternity in heaven. If we refuse Him and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, then we have chosen hell and will get our choice. God made us to have free will choice and He will respect the choice we make - and it will not be changeable for all eternity. God does not always get what He wants - He wills that all men would be saved.

"Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12

Just as He said there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over many righteous men who don't need to repent, this shows there is great pain and sadness for God when one is lost. He has done everything to save us, it is our choice, and it is eternal. Won't you make the decision for salvation in Jesus Christ right now? We are not guaranteed another minute and eternity looms before all of us. Choose a good consequence and God bless you!! See you when we all get home!
