Under Subjection

1 Corinthians 6:12 (KJV)
 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

*God has the power to do all things, and provide anything your heart desires. However, all things aren't necessarily beneficial for us or will come as quickly as others. This is determined by how God utilizes the word "epedient" in this verse. Expedient refers not only to whether something is for your good or profit, but it also defines how quickly things can occur. Some blessings take a longer process then others, and require that you grow in order for them to be beneficial to you. If you received any and everything based on your own timing, then you may be setting yourself up for failure because you are neither ready nor aware of how to handle such a gift. Also, some things do not assist in bettering your situation or enhancing your calling, which is why they are not given to you. If you truly submit to God's perfect will for your life, you will not only be aware of His capabilities, but of His protection through proactive methods. Therefore, next time you find yourself wondering whether something/one is for you or why something hasn't happened, ask yourself this: Is this entity something that I'm trying to subject under God, or am I trying to place God's power under the subjection of this thing or person? God should always be first before anything...True value is not based on how you compare God's value in your life to things, but how that thing measures up to God's will....
