Have you ever wondered why you do things and it doesn’t go like you thought it would? I mean you roll played it in your head so many times and not one of those times did it go like it did in real life. What actually went down, you never ever imagined. You’re hurt. You’re angry at God. You don’t understand how it wound up like this. Let me tell you why it did.
When you said, “Yes” to Jesus’ invitation to accept him, and you asked him to forgive you of your sins, you became his bride. When you are his bride, you come under his authority. Not that he will “lord” over you, but protect you. It’s as if he becomes an umbrella over you.
So when you make a decision and do something that is not part of God’s will for your life you are walking out from under Jesus’ protection. You are acting again as if you were single. Making your own decisions. Doing your own thing. It may seem right to you, but it’s not what God wants for you, or it is not his timing, or his way.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)
If you find yourself getting wet with the hurts of life, repent, apologize to God, and get back under the umbrella of protection.
