As members of the kingdom of God, everything we do affects everyone everywhere all the time. We are part of a uniquely connected fellowship that has a profound effect on the world. Our lives yielded to God will create lasting legacies that further His far-reaching plan for humanity. Therefore, our choices must be weighed in light of this fact and our decisions prayerfully made. We can’t afford to lean on our own understanding by being moved by what we see, influenced by our peers, constrained by the urgency of time, or dependent on our own ideas of what our lives are supposed to look like. Instead we must believe and trust that God knows what is best. That the things He prevents are for our protection. What He allows are for our benefit and the furtherance of His kingdom.
God will orchestrate the circumstances of our lives to give us joy and fulfillment while glorifying Himself. When we do things His way, we will never live in regret. Truly the blessing of the Lord makes us rich and adds no sorrow.
