For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken (harmed). Proverbs:3:26
Often when the circumstances of life are seemingly against us, we feel God has forsaken us,or He did not hear or answer our prayers.
Thats's how I felt for a fleeting moment a few years ago when I got a telephone call saying my sister and mother had been in a car accident. They were okay, which I am thankful, but my sister's car had been damaged. I had asked my sister to take mother to the doctor for me. I usually take her, but needed to work that day. That morning, as I was going to work, I prayed for them. Pleading the blood over them and asking the Lord to take care of them. The doctor's office was an hours drive from us. So, naturally, when I was told about the wreck, I asked God "why". I said, "Father, I asked you to take care of them". No sooner had I got the words out, He spoke to me and said, "I did take care of them". I began to think about what He had said to me. Yes, He did take care of them. It could have been worse. They were okay, without a scratch.
We all go through trials and things in this life that we do not understand. God did not say that we wouldn't. But, He said, he would be with us through them.
God did take care of my family. He put His shield around them, so no evil could befall them. God wants us to trust Him, even when we cannot understand. Our endurance through the trials of this life is based on our trust and our hope in Him. When trials and conflict come your way, don't think God has forsaken you. He is right there with you holding you up and giving you strength to carry on. Psalms 34:19-20 says," Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken".
Satan comes and tries to deceive us. He causes things to happen that might hinder our faith or steal our joy. He even tried to deceive Jesus, himself. But, He knew where his confidence was. You know, Satan will , also, put the guilt trip on you. That's how I felt, thinking, "what if". But, God's word says in Romans 8:1, "There is now, therefore, no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus".
Just remember, God does hear our prayers. He hasn't forgotten you. God is there with us at all times, no matter what we are facing or going through. He is our hope, our confidence. He wants us to just rely on Him, putting the problem, the anexity and cares of this life on Him. Let Him carry your burden, and work out the problems you may face. Remember, God loves you, and He is always there.
He's Always There
Do you feel sad, lonely, and blue?
God wants you to know that He cares for you.
God is no stranger in a far away land,
He's right there with you, holding your hand.
Just as sure as you feel the wind as it blows,
You can feel Him near, for your heart surely knows.
He is your faithful and loyal friend,
He'll be with you until the end.
He's ready to take you in His care,
You're never alone, He's always there.
