Many things in life will fail us. Friendships will blossom and then die. Health can be an elusive thing. Riches and wealth will often remain just beyond the reach of your finger tips. Those we love will pass from the scene leaving a void in our hearts hard to be filled. However, there is one thing that every child of God possesses that can never fail, never end, never run out, never run dry and that will never be found to be insufficient, and ie, the grace of God! Yes, the road may be long and dreary, the days may be filled with difficulties and struggles, but rest assured that there will be grace sufficient for every need and every trial.
In life when we face hard situations which are beyond are control and understanding and instead of facing it we choose to quit and we try to console our minds and heart by saying this, “It’s okay, I ain’t capable or strong enough to handle it!” And we brighten our hopes by saying this Maybe God has some different plans for me.
Friends, the problem isn’t with the situation which you faced rather it’s with your attitude and belief. Because if you belong to God and if you are His child or creation then it ain’t right that you live your life intimidated by every bad report you hear from your surroundings which conveys your capability to them.
Because in reality you just don’t know who you are and nor have you accessed the courage which God has planted inside you. For the scriptures says in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
My dear friends, God already knows what we are going in face in life. He already has drawn His plans for us and that plan is covered and sealed by His grace, power, peace and blood. Nothing can stop the power of God to work in our situations apart from our own disbelief. Be Courageous not because of who you are but Because of Who He His !!
One day I phoned a friend of mine, who is in the ministry and asked, “How’s it going?” His quiet reply was, “Well, I’m having one of those days.” The days refers to the time when everything seems to be going wrong, all plans are falling apart, it seems like the forces of enemy are against you. There are moments of despair, anguish, sorrow, disappointment etc and such feelings triggers a familiar question in our mind– WHY ME?
Well friends, one thing is true we all have our shares of trouble and when circumstances entrap you and trouble closes around you, Pray to the Lord. He knows how to turn your trouble into triumph, trails into testimony, failure into victory. Remember this although God may not answer our prayers the way we expect, but He will do what is best for us and will use that for His glory.
One day a little boy was telling his grandmother how “everything” in his life was going wrong. He told her about his problems with school, family, friends, etc. Meanwhile, his grandmother is baking a cake. She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which of course he does. “Here, have some cooking oil,” grandma offers. “Yuck” says the boy.
“How about a couple raw eggs?” Grandma asks him. “That’s gross, Grandma!” he says. “Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?” “Grandma, those things are all yucky!” the boy says. To which Grandma replies: “Yes, all these things seem bad by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!
Friends, God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times. But as we trust in Him despite the circumstances, Eventually, together all things will make something wonderful!”
So … God is GOOD—- ‘ALL THE TIME’
