This video is based on a passage from John R. Powers’ Book Odditude
So much in life is a matter of perspective. There’s a verse in the Bible that speaks of how God sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous, Matthew 5:45. I always took that to mean that God rains on everybody’s parade sometimes. My wife who was raised on a farm saw it as just the opposite. She sees rain as God’s blessing. Who’s right? Both of us. Rain is both a blessing and an inconvenience, depending on your need, depending on what you have planned. So much of life is like this. Skiers love snow, people who need to get to work, not so much. But now look at it from God’s perspective. He’s got two people praying, one for rain and one against. Either way someone is going to be upset. One is going to feel blessed, the other overlooked. What should He do? What He always does, He does what’s right. We need to trust God to be right even when the answer to our prayers is no. God is the only one who knows how this whole thing works. We need to trust Him, even when we’re not sure we like what he’s doing.
God always answers prayer, but sometimes his answer is no and sometimes it’s wait.
God is always good. Trust him.
