Because there is a reason

Today was a crazy day. My emotions were up and down. From waking up feeling determined to later feeling so discouraged to the point of giving up. There was a situation i thought i had control over only for things to turn out that i infact have no control over it. It’s frustrating. It’s disappointing as well but i later reminded a verse in Isaiah 61:1-3.

bible-prophecies-about-healing-11-638The Spirit of the Lord did not just rest on the prophet Isaiah for the sake of it. There was a reason for it which was for prophet Isaiah to preach the good news to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted,  to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,  to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.

There was a BECAUSE to it. Because means the reason that….I was so uplifted after reading this verse because it reminded me that God does not do anything out of random. He plans everything in advance according to the purposes that He has ordained for our lives. There is a because, there is a reason for the situation, there is a reason for the circumstance, there is a reason for the storm.

Look for the because in life. Look for the because in any season, look for the because in the storm. For therein lies the purpose of the season or storm.
