And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment – to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head even Christ.
Ephesians 1:9, 10 (NIV)
God was not intentionally keeping his plan a secret ( ‘the mystery of his will’ ), but his plan for the world could not be fully understood until Christ rose from the dead. Many people still do not understand God’s plan; but when the time is right ( ‘when the times will have reached their fulfillment’ ), he will bring us together to be with him forever. Then everyone will understand. On that day, all people will bow to Jesus as Lord, either because they love him or because they gear his power.
In most cases, its not meant for us to fully understand the meaning behind God’s actions. The problem with society is always wanting a explanation and meaning behind the world’s most known unknown secrets. However when it comes to God, there’s no justifying His actions and or doings.
I’ve come to realize and I have even experienced that when I go through something, I later understand the reason why I went through whatever it was that I went through. Sometimes the trials and tribulations are good, most time our tribulations are bad, but bad in our eyes, at that point and time. We will later understand the reasoning behind our tribulations.
All we can do here and now, is look at all struggles as a lesson, learn from it, and simply move on and attain God’s word. Now, if you choose to continue to dwell in poor circumstances, your just holding yourself back form what God is possibly is trying to show and tell you. Allow God to build you up, we can’t do it on our own.
