As we go through life, we go through things that we don’t understand. We question God about the things that we are going through because we want answers. There are times when He is silent and we don’t know why. We often wonder if He is there, if He is listening to us in all of the silence. To us it is as if He has forgotten about us, but that isn’t the case; He is just giving us a little more time to pray, to strengthen our faith to the point that we will fully trust and believe in Him.
Life brings us obstacles that we have to work through, but we must let God lead and guide us through all of our circumstances that we face. Times may change but God never will. He said that He would never leave us nor forsake us; He will be with us even when we are called home to be with Him. We have to just stop and think and say to ourselves that we may feel alone in our trying times, but through it all we are not. No, we cannot see God Like we see each other, but He is real, and He is very much alive. He does things that we don’t understand, but it is good for us.
Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. When we study God’s Word we draw faith and strength from it. When we have faith as a grain of a mustard seed we can move mountains. God wants us to have mustard seed faith; that is faith that is unwavering. That is the kind of faith that we have; the deep knowledge of God, His Spirit that keeps us in perfect peace because we trust Him. That is the kind of faith that will bring us through anything that we may face. It does not matter what we go through in this life, God will always go through it all with us.
When we feel we can’t walk through the struggle, He will carry us. When we feel we can’t take it anymore, He will give us strength to carry on. When we become discouraged, He will lift us up with an encouraging word. When we feel that life is becoming a bit much, He will strengthen our faith. When we don’t know which way to turn, He will give us divine direction. When we cannot turn off the thoughts that stress us out, He will give us sweet peaceful sleep. When our nightmares frighten us with fear, He will give us beautiful dreams, and beauty where there were ashes, joy for our sorrows, and wipe every tear from our eyes.
We have a Father that will literally go to our hearts and fix whatever is broken, because that is just who He is, He is Love. There is nothing that He cannot do. Nothing is to big or to small that He cannot fix it. You know, God is good. He is better to us than we will ever be to ourselves. His love for us will never fail; it is from everlasting to everlasting. I am so glad that I gave my life back to Him. If you haven’t had a conversation with the Creator today, or for a very long time, have some time set aside and just talk to Him about everything, empty your heart out to Him. He is waiting to hear from you.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and I hope everyone has a Happy and Richly Blessed New Year.
