I know some of you reading this are ready to give up and quit. Some mountain is standing between you and the dream you thought was sure to become a reality. You think God has lost track of where you are and what you are going through. He hasn’t my friends. I hope and pray this messages encourages you to not give up. You may be asking that you don’t understand why a loving God would allow so much pain to saturate this broken world and perpetuate such loss and hurt. I don’t either. But God’s ways are so much higher than our ways, and His thoughts are for our eternal good – not our temporary comfort. I am banking on eternity. I am counting on the character of God and His heart of unconditional, unmerited and undeserved love. Have a wonderful day relying on God’s strength to give you hope.
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” ~ Galatians 6:9
God’s forgiveness gives us the strength to get out of bed each morning, and His peace is our comfort in the dark, lonely nights. Like you, We’ve all asked God at times why He has allowed a circumstance to exist and have questioned His favor and we allowed fear and worry to make us doubt His plan. And I have to tell you that I can now look back and see so many of the question marks yanked into exclamation points in my life. I am so thankful that He said “no” to so many of the prayers I desperately wanted Him to answer with “yes.” He is God. He is able and He is more than enough.
No matter where you are today, know He is with you and that His heart is for you. Don’t quit. He is not angry with you. If you’re a born-again believer you are His child, the apple of His eye and His cherished child. Don’t give up. Right now, surrender all of your pain to Him. Shed your tears, knowing He will collect them all and one day pour them back into your life as a refreshing rain of restoration and healing. Keep going. Ask your questions, knowing Heaven is not in a panic and that your God really is who He says He is and will do what He has promised to do. He simply waits for you to trust Him.
