There is a Purpose for Everything

There is a Purpose for EverythingBy Egbeigwe Maria Unoaku
A King, who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all circumstances, said: My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, and no mistakes!
One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty losing a finger. Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the nobleman said
"Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger."
The slave replied: "My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows "why" of all these things. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!" Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.
Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices. While the kings’ body was laid in the altar, ready to be sacrificed, the savages found that their victim had total of nine (9) instead of (10) ten fingers. According to them, it was a taboo to offer such a man with incomplete fingers to their gods so he was released. Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that he received very affectionately.
The King for the first time said, "My dear, God was really good to me, I was almost killed by these wild men that captured me, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go. Yet the King said to his slave I have a question “if God is so good, why He allowed me to put you in jail?" "My King,
The slave again replied, “This was to show you that everything God does is perfect and that there is a purpose for everything. If I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you because I have no missing finger. It is also to prove to you that, the Almighty King of Kings (GOD) is never wrong in His action and decisions." What a statement!
Often we complain about life, due to negative things that happen to us, forgetting like the king in this story that nothing is random but that everything has a purpose. Every morning, offer your day to God, don't be in a rush. Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings. Do not be afraid but take step of faith in God for He is never wrong!
I don’t know why you happen to read the story of this King and his slave but God knows. One thing about this story is that, the path of God and his word is perfect, without any impurities. It is up to you to take positive action in the lessons you gained from this story. He is the way of all those who trust in Him, as he says in 2 Samuel 22: 31.
May God put in your heart not just to be a reader of this story, but to put in action those lessons learnt and also try to bless someone with the message therein, Knowing full well that God is never wrong and can never makes mistake.
