Sometimes it feels like we are crying out to God and He has turned His ear from us. Sometimes we feel like He has left us and is refusing to help us, comfort us or even think about us. During these times, we know that He hasn’t done any of these things, but that is how we feel. Where we have a hard time not dwelling in self-pity during these times. In times of suffering, don’t turn inward to self-pity or outward to revenge, but turn upward to God. The encouragement that I would like to give you will just simply re-type what this passages say below.
“My heart is confident in you, O God, my heart is confident. No wonder I can sing your praises.” Psalm 57:7
God knows what is best for us. If He sees that we need time to grow, then who are we to think otherwise? Sometimes though, we wonder if we really need to “grow” that much for all the suffering that we go through. It is hard to always remember that God knows, God cares and God is there. But He does and He is.
We don’t understand it all, but we know that He is such a great God, an awesome God, that He can even allow room for our doubts, just as David doubted in the Psalms, John the Baptist doubted Jesus when he was in jail and Thomas doubted Jesus after the resurrection. God wants us to willingly turn to Him so that He can manifest in our life in ways that are impossible for us naturally. This is when He receives glory and His name will be exalted.
God will always be there for me, for you and for anyone who seeks His presence. He will always make a way for you, even the impossible. As followers of Christ we are His beloved children, made right by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. When times get tough, look for a pathway that seems impossible and be willing to travel that path. He will always be faithful.
