Davidisms: Everything that Happens to Me Must be Father-filtered

I have come to this deeply held conviction: Everything that happens on this earth must first be Father-filtered. If we are God the Father’s children, and he owns us and oversees all we do, then nothing can come to us unless our Father in heaven gives permission.


Look at Job (Job 1-2). Satan had to first ask for permission from God before he did anything with Job.


Also, examine Peter at the Last Supper (Luke 22). Jesus told him that Satan wanted to sift him like wheat, and Jesus had granted it.


For followers of Jesus - all of our life’s circumstances - must first be filtered by our Father. He must first give permission before bad stuff comes to us from the enemy.


That means that all circumstances, both good and bad, will be used by God to accomplish his great purpose for our lives (Romans 8:28). Job became a mighty man of faith who believed that no plan of God could be thwarted (Job 42:2). Jesus told Peter that Satan’s sifting of him would be used so he could build other people’s faith as they went through difficult times.


Our Daddy in heaven is in all things and using all things for our good and his glory.


Always remember: For God’s children, everything must first be Father-filtered.
