Everything that God does have a reason, it is perfect and He is never wrong. We as humans have a tendency to complain often. We lament about life, and the negative incidents that occur in our lives forgetting that everything happening to us has a purpose and that God knows best. Complaining does not solve any problem at all. It only makes it worse because one may suffer from “complaining-related pressures” thus worsening the situation. Being positive and showing gratitude at every circumstance that comes our way would reduce the negative impact associated with the negative occurrences. This may not be scientifically proven but has some extent of truth to it. Below is a short narration that demonstrates the power of gratitude and being positive at all situations.
A king had a male servant who in all occasions always said to him, “My king do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes. One day, both the king and the male servant went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king, the servant managed to kill the animal but could not prevent the king from losing a finger. The king was furious and with gratitude, he said, “If God is good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.” The servant replied, “Despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good and everything that He does is perfect. He is never wrong.” Furiously, the king ordered the arrest of the servant. As he was being taken to prison, he told the king again, “God is good and perfect.”
On another day, the king went hunting but this time alone. He was captured by savages who used human beings for sacrifice. On the alter, the savages discovered that their sacrifice was missing a finger. He was released because according to them, the king was an incomplete sacrifice that would not be acceptable to their gods. On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his make servant and said, “God was really good to me. I was almost killed but because of my missing finger I was set free. I have a question, If God is good, and why did He allow me to imprison you?” The servant replied, “Your Majesty, If I had gone with you, I would be sacrificed since I do not have a missing finger.”
From this illustration, God knows what happens to us and the predetermined events that are yet to occur. He also has a reason for all the situations that come our way. For any negative situation, there is always a positive part of the same incident. We should therefore concentrate on the positives of events and be grateful for them.
