Most people perceive the will of God as a burden, or something to be feared. They see it as a heavy obligation to a supreme being that is out to make their life difficult. Most gods are this way, but not ours. Not the One, True God. The One True God is out to bring us close to Him and restore us to what we were originally intended to be. He shows us what joy can be found in the midst of a broken world. He even shows us peace in the raging battles we also must fight. Because although there is pain and suffering because of people’s decisions, we are once again walking with our Creator. We can revel in pure, unadulterated joy because we are safe under His wings. There is nowhere He does not walk alongside us.
Many sorrows come to the wicked,
but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord. – Psalm 32:10
