Testing Fate?

I was talking to a friend tonight and it was about Gods Time?  How do we know when things are God's time or are we pushing the envelope to make things happen in our time?  I wonder how many times can fate be tested before fate wins out?  Just one of my random thoughts...

Then I get this email from another friend and she was saying basically the same thing... She was saying about praying and fasting to find out what God's plan is...  I don't think I have been doing very good in the understand of God's Will lately and seem to push the envelope or want to take things into my own hands... I know that God always knows what is best... By goodness, I wish He would hurry up... But by saying that, is that undermining the authority of God or testing Him too much? But then is it OK to  test God... I know we should test to be sure things are of God, but how far and how do we know when the test is over or has failed?

Then I wonder if a person/people who aren't able to pray for themselves, does that mean they are forever lost and doomed? There are times that people have a hard time or have no strength or pray or know what is best because Satan is hitting them in the face every-time they turn around... It's like they get up and he knocks them down... I would think that if I couldn't get through and get the answer that there is relief, hope or peace, I would just shoot myself... Why even continue fighting or living if there is no hope or hope for peace... This has been part of an ongoing conversation with a couple friends... I don't know if there are any real answers...

I am going to post some pictures though from Gunlock... Enjoy... This is about 10 minutes from me...

We are always trying to push the envelope and do things within our time frame. God's time is all the time.
Every time we try to 'do things our way' God either laughs or shakes his head.
We also 'test' God all the time. It's a wonder he hasn't given up on us. By learning, or testing as you put it, what things are of God, we can know it has passed by the response from God. Sometimes hard to understand when it's not the result we want.
As for those who are being knocked down by Satan, or who don't have the strength to pray, I believe that God is still working through them and with them. God's love and grace are unending. God never gives up on us. There is always hope. Always.
With Christ all things are possible. And maybe what we think the final outcome should be and what God thinks it should be are different, but there is always hope and grace.
