You have probably lost your job, someone you loved dearly has passed away, business is down, and your children are turning into little rebels.
You don’t understand why all this is happening.
You have prayed, fasted, and done every ‘Christian thing’ that you can do to get things right and on track, but it is not working.
Well, there are times in life when things don’t make sense.
Those times when you don’t know why you’re on earth. You want things to get better, but there is no hope.
Here is the thing:
No matter what you’re going through, God is with you. He will never leave nor forsake you. You need to trust him even when you don’t understand. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
God Is More Than Able
The God that you serve is more than able. His delay is not a denial. (Daniel 3:17)
Things may be working against you right now, but God is not working against you. God is there with you.
He is helping and strengthening you. It may not seem like it right now, but when this hard season is over, you will realize that God is the only one that gave you the strength to fight.
He Saved You Before He Will Do It Again
When we are going through challenging times, it is easy to forget the times when God saved us from trouble.
But remember the last time he got you out of that difficult situation.
It seemed like there was no way out, but at the eleventh hour, God came through for you.
Remember those times, and you will be able to overcome any doubt and fear that is creeping in your heart.
God Is Faithful
Nowhere in the Bible do you see God promising someone something and then changing his mind.
We serve a covenant-keeping God.
Though the children of Israel forgot about God and only turned back to him in their suffering, God remained faithful to them all through he never left them alone.
Even when they sinned and opened up doors for their enemies to capture them, God would still forgive them and rescue them.
It doesn’t matter what you are going through, the challenges you are facing maybe as a result of unconfessed sin or the enemy’s attack.
No matter the cause, God is faithful. (Deutronomy 31:8)
He will help you and lift you.
To sum it up:
Run to God, not away from him.
Pray without ceasing and believe that he has heard your prayers.
Focus on his promises over your life and stand firm in the faith. It is not God who is against you.
The devil is your enemy. We also live in a fallen world, and that means we shall go through trials and tribulations.
Though things do not make sense right now, do not lean on your understanding.
Believe in God because he is more than able, and he is faithful.
He did it before, and he will do it again because nothing is too complicated for him.
