When storms come and we find ourselves wondering how did we get on the other side? Asking ourselves over and over, how did we make it out alive? We’re bewildered at how we made it through the storm. It was all God. He rescued us while riding through the storm.
Every day we will face new challenges and new experiences that will question our faith. And at times we will find it difficult to see God in anything. God does not keep us from encountering storms, but he will see us through the storm. He promises to rescue us. He walks with and is always with us. You will not fail. “I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread” (Psalm 37:25). Trust God. He knows just what he’s doing.
I know this may be hard to believe and impossible to understand, but sometimes in the face of adversity God’s perfect will for your life will be revealed. God is speaking to you. He wants to know if you trust him. He wants to see what you’re going to do because he already knows what he’s going to do.
God sends trials to test your faith. The devil sends temptation to destroy your faith. Don’t give in. Let God handle him. When God removes some things from you, the devil knows what He’s about to do and will try anything he can to destroy you. Don’t let him. Whatever he dishes out, return it to the sender!
No matter what troubles you. There’s nothing and I mean nothing God can’t do. Let go. Let God. Nothing is too hard for God. We may struggle and want to give up at times. Consider it pure joy. Praise God in the midst of the storm. No matter the circumstance, glorify God. Trials are a test of our faith. It’s where we will discover God’s faithfulness. Keep the faith.
Be blessed! –JD
Psalm 34:17-20 “17 When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. 20 He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.”
