It is not easy to walk in faith when we are going through tough times. When things are good it is effortless to trust God. It’s in those moments, when we can’t see our way out, that God desires for us to lean on Him. In Hebrews 11 the writer begins to list endless examples of how God delivered people in the very situations they were in. The writer goes on to say that if we don’t have faith, we aren’t pleasing to God. God’s desire is that we have an intimate relationship with Him. It’s in having a close relationship with Him that we begin to learn, know and trust God. This experience comes through our prayer life. The trials and tribulations we experience should drive us into the presence of God, not the arms of doubt.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
In order to have faith in God, we must first realize that God is God and there is nothing too difficult for Him. Satan’s job is to persuade us to think that our problems are too big for God or that the situation is impossible to fix. Sometimes the problems can seem so enormous that we wouldn’t dare to bring our issues to God. However, in Luke 18:1 Jesus reminded the disciples that we should always pray and not faint. It is impossible to have faith in God if we don’t know and recognize who He is. Once we come into the realization of who God is then we can truly operate in faith.
It is imperative that while we go through our situations, we seek God with an earnest and passion that surpasses our fears and doubts. God is more than capable of handling everything we go through. When we say we trust God, we are saying that we have a dependence and reliance on Him. The trust is not in our careers, intellect or money, but in God. He is waiting for us to enter His presence and to tell Him about all of our issues and concerns. When we do this, then and only then will we experience the rewards of answered prayer, solved problems and increased faith. My friends, let us walk full of faith, trusting, leaning and depending on God. “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
