Sometimes, do you feel like crying out, God where are you? Hello! God! I am still here waiting for you. I can't hear youuuuuuu! Well, it is not because God is not there, it is usually because you are trying to take care of your problems yourself, instead of turning them over to Him. We are all guilty of this at some time or another in our lives, we face a big problem, and think Oh Lord, you better sit this one out, I am going to have to worry over this one to get it right.
How fickle we are. One minute, we say we trust in the Lord with all our hearts and we lean not on our own understanding but in all things we seek Him first. LIAR! That is what we are. Sure sometimes we may give it to God when we can see the outcome before our eyes, but it is those times when we can not see the outcome that our faith falters and we start wringing our hands and trying to reason things out, instead of going to Him in prayer with our petitions.
Or how about when we are really having a hard time with someone, and we just can't seem to walk in love toward that person. Well, there we go again, thinking everything has to be rosey all the time, and this person is upsetting our apple cart. I bet Jesus didn't have anyone upsetting His apple cart. Yeh right!
Jesus dealt with these problems and even more so that we do, because He never gave up on someone, He continually walked in love toward everyone, and He always seeked the Father's will instead of His own.
That is where most of miss the boat, we are seeking our will instead of His.
Remember we reap what we sow, and if we are having the same problems in our lives over and over, then maybe we need to check our love walk, or our time spent in the word. Remember, we are what we feed ourselves. If we continue to feed ourselves junk, like dirty novels, soap operas, reality tv shows, court tv, secular music, then that is what we become. On the other hand if we feed on God's word, and walk in His ways, then we will have a much easier time when it comes to trusting in Him to take care of us and our problems. Don't give up. Your blessing is just around the corner.
Galatians 6 v 7-9....Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart.......
Keep up the good work!
