There is a very big question that life throws at us every moment. Life is so full of surprises that we sometimes are left dumbfounded about how to give response to certain situations that life throws at us. At every point that we fall into trials, do we stay accustomed to what God is saying to us or we sit back letting our whole emotions get in the way and we forget what God’s will is? That’s a question of faith.
Life can present a lot of situations as unhealthy before us. We might be left at sea about how to handle them, about whom to run to. As believers and lovers of God, one thing that should never skip our hearts is Jeremiah 29:11 which says,
“For I know the thoughts that I have towards you; thoughts of good and not of evil; to give you an expected end”
Having a full understanding of this helps us with joy to triumph through every situation, knowing fully well that something great that we can never imagine is coming to stay in our lives.
Paul admonished us in James 1:2 – 4 to,
“… count it all joy when thou fall into differs temptations; knowing that the trying of your faith worketh patience ; but let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing”.
When life comes with the big question of faith to examine whether we still believe in God’s miraculous and wondrous power, we should be full of rejoicing because we know that from there, a greater glory is about to spring forth.
The Bible says, “as far as the Heaven is from the earth, so is our thought from His thoughts”. As humans, we tend to always want the hand of the Father to be manifested where we want it exactly because our eyes are too myopic to see the bigger picture.
Glory! God, who is faithful and just, stays faithful to His word and blesses you with a bigger miracle. As against questioning God for our “unhealthy situations”, as against questioning our faith, as against blaming shortcomings and errors, why don’t we stay focused on what God is set to do because of His love for us?
Job declared “… though he slay me, yet will I love him”. The Bible says in all that Job went through, he sinned not nor charge God foolishly (Job 1:22). He dealt with the question of faith well.
Learning to put all your trust in God rather than questioning His words helps you to become a victor. I charge you today neither to dim it a faith problem nor a prayer problem but that the glory of God might be revealed to all men.
Giving expression to the Holy Spirit within you and the Word of God makes you develop an edge over your problem and you place God over all your challenges. It is not enough to know that God can do it; live everyday walking in that realty that “it is done”.
As believers, we know God is good to those whose trust is in Him. If we seek God with a quieted soul, we will be able to hear His whispers of goodness all around us; but if we are loud and our hearts are full of hate, when God is speaking and assuring us of goodness, we will miss it. Live everyday with your faith rooted in him. When your faith is being questioned, reply that God is faithful and just to take you through.
