A place many Christians get messed up and their faith injured is when they believe God has told them to go somewhere or do something and when they obey, their lives seem to fall apart.

For the sake of this discussion, we will assume that it was indeed God guiding them and they didn't "miss it".

It is wrong to assume that just because God has told us to go here or do this, that He's promising a "happily ever after" (in worldly terms) outcome from this action.

It is true that His will for those who love and obey Him is for our good, but it is our true and ultimate good He wants and that can be diametrically different than our fleshly concept of what is good for us right now. Remember, God has told us:

  • "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9
My opinion of what would be good for my children would be no illness, abundant provision, only happiness all their days. What if God granted me my fleshly prayers for them? Without hardship and lack, they would never develop spiritual fruit, godly character, a deep and enduring effective walk with their God, a deep understanding that He is their provision and not the money in their pocket or their jobs, and countless other things. These are the genuine "good for us".

Without allowing us to go through trials and hardships, even suffering, we would never mature in Him. We would never be useful in His kingdom. We would be like the house built on the sand that could not stand when the storm came.
  • "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." James 1:2-4
Muscles are not made strong without resistance.
