The Reason For Everything

This is my Reflection on Chapter 7 of the "Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren


"Everything came from God Alone, everything lives by His power and everything is for His glory." - Romans 11:36


Romans 11:36 made me think, How can I see God's glory when there is poverty, corruptions, hatred, violence and crime, do all these things came from God and reveal His glory?. How can we glorify God when we feel oppressed or abandoned?

I guess it's more of how we react on things around us, on things we encounter, on things we experienced. Our attitude will make the difference.

I’ve been serving the Lord for over 20 years now, just like you, I experienced a lot of trials and pain in life and sometimes I even asked the Lord why these things happened to me. Today, I still experience trials and pain but I react differently, it seems that everything which is happening in my life has a purpose, may it be good or bad. I am able to find reasons to glorify the Lord in every details of my life…and God blessed me even more…

I think the ultimate test in my life was when my wife had a miscarriage 10 months ago, I should have question God for what had happened but instead I thanked and glorified Him. That experienced made me a better person, a stronger person, with full of hope and trust in Him

In every single details of my life, I see His glory…

The glory of God will always shine whatever happens…
