“…All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16b
Have you ever forgotten that God is Creator and you are a created being? Perhaps in an unpleasant circumstance you have gotten upset at God for allowing it to happen. But when we remember who God is, we cannot remain angry, for we are but dust. The only reason we are walking and breathing is because of His grace and mercy. We were created through Him alone.
We were also created for God. We are to bring Him honor and glory, not the other way around. Who are we to question His plans and purposes? He is sovereign and all-knowing, so anything He allows in our lives is superior to what we may think is best. Let us not forget that Jesus condescended Himself. We are mere creatures deserving of Hell, but praise God for His indescribable gift!
