Some one posted this story and asked that it be shared. I enjoyed reading it. You will also:
A King had a male servant who, in all circumstances always said to him:
“My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes.”
One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king. The servant managed to kill the animal, but couldn’t prevent his majesty from losing a finger.
Furious, and without showing gratitude, the King said, “if God was good, I would not have been attacked and would not have lost one finger.”
The servant replied, “despite this, I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect, He is never wrong.”
Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his servant. While being taken to prison, he told the king again, “God is good and perfect.”
One day, the king left alone for another hunting expedition. This time, he was captured by savages who used human beings for sacrifice.
On the altar, the savages found that the king didn’t have one finger in place and do released because he was considered not complete to be offered to the gods.
On his return to the palace, he ordered the release of his servant and said, “My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. But I have a question. If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in prison?”
The servant replied, “My king, if I had not been put in prison, I would have gone with you, and would have been sacrificed, because I have no missing finger. Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong.”
Often, we complain about life, and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that everything happens for a purpose. God knows why you are reading this message today. God is good and perfect.
A good attitude will determine your altitude. When you look at your life, career, job or family life, what do you say? Do you praise God? Do you blame Satan? A good attitude towards God makes Him move on your side. Just sit down and say, “Today , I am thankful I had a peaceful sleep. I am thankful I am alive with possibilities. I am thankful I have a roof over me. I am thankful I have a job. I am thankful that I have Family and Friends. Above all, I am thankful that I have God in my life.
Be blessed and don’t be envious or shocked when others prosper because you don’t know what they have been through to get there (tests, trials and tribulations); so thank God for what you have.
Little is much when God is in it. It is well with God’s grace. Everything God does is for our own good.
