There is often an answer to the “why” of Divine will in any given circumstance but you have to be willing to seek it. Some things we just can’t understand, not this side of heaven anyway, and some things are just too painful for us to understand, but for the most part, there really is a rhyme, a reason, a wise purpose behind God’s will. The reason why we seek it out and seek Him out is to better get to know Him, to know His nature and His voice, and in the process to also better know ourselves.

1 Kings 19:11-13 

And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

Before we can tell a sinner that his or her debt is paid, we must first inform that sinner of his or her debt. Only when sinners understand the cost of their sin can they also understand the glory of Christ to pay that cost in full. Handing out forgiveness like candy does not glorify the Lord…. As soon as sinners realize the wickedness of what they have done, they should also be assured that their debt is paid in full.

Nehemiah was a cup bearer, not a builder or architect. What made the difference was that he was willing.


Nehemiah 2:18

Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king’s words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work

God always works in a way that will best display His honor and Glory

When we get full of ourselves for the great work we do for the Lord…remember this.


Psalm 115:1 

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

Sometimes contending means we have to open our mouths and speak


Jude 3 

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

Just a Thought

If a brother sins, confronting it may lead to restoration. On the other hand, if we ignore it, we are complicit in it


Matthew 18:15 

Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

It’s a guarantee that, when you try to do something for the Lord, that the detractors will come.


Ezra 4:4-6 

Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia. And in the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote they unto him an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem.
