What do you do when you don’t see God’s faithfulness, when you feel lost ,hopeless and discouraged?
What do you do when all you know is the dryness of the desert-the sand in your mouth and the harsh conditions beating against you daily?
The Lord says call unto me and I will answer-but what happens when the dephts of your soul are crying out and the wells of your tears have run dry and all you can do is raise your hands and hope that the Lord hears you at that point?
I normally have answers for quite alot of things; I normally have a testimony I can tell you about approaching the above mentioned scenario-but sometimes God honestly places you in conditions that’ll feel like you are about to die; He doesn’t do this to kill us-but He does this so we grow and depend on Him daily.
At times I feel like my insides are bursting and groaning to just have the Lord touch me-to just hear his reassuring words-to just feel his embrace, but at times God will remove the tangible aspects of Himself so that we trust in His Word-in His promise.
I don’t believe our Father watches us whilst we are in pain and continues doing His own thing-it’s not in His nature! The enemy has a way of capitalising on our most vulnerable moments to make it seem as if God doesn’t care-but that’s not true; as deep cries out to deep the Lord is right there ,He may not be responding the way we expect Him to -but He’s still there, He’s watching over us. He’s Listening intently on my prayers. He’s encouraging me to move forward.
As a Christian there’s no formula to living this life-trials and challenges are ever present in our lives but the promise we have is that God remains faithful-even when we aren’t-He remains faithful!
Like I said-currently I don’t have the answers to the scenario I painted earlier but what I do know is that Jesus loves us with an inexplicable and indescribable kind of love and His nature – his very character is that He is faithful.
For now that’s all I have and that’s the encouragement I can give you pertaining the situation you find yourself in.
God is faithful.
The song below encouraged and ministered to me so deeply-I am hoping it does the same for you
Be blessed my friend.
