A lot of times, life’s situations can make us feel God has abandoned us. Especially when you pray and demand immediate response and nothing seem to happen.
And of course that is when the devil comes whispering to you that God doesn’t care about you. But look at this; “For God so loved the world that He gave Jesus….!” JESUS IS THE SOLUTION TO ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS(Matt 11:28). Before the emergence of Christ, the world was helpless.
Man lost direct access to God. But Jesus came to restore that. He told the Samaritan woman something, He said the time cometh when you wouldn’t need to go to the mountain, or to Jerusalem to pray.. you will worship God in Spirit and in Truth(direct access to the Father through Jesus)(Heb 4:16).
Friend, having direct access to God through Jesus is a powerful privilege. Because of God’s love for us, He strategised a means of restoring our broken relationship.
In John 11:35, Jesus wept, NOT because of Lazarus’ death, for He knew He was coming to raise Lazarus from the dead. He wept because of the pain and agony in which He saw His friends Mary and Martha(sisters of the deceased). If Jesus wept, it means He was emotional. And Jesus is a reflection of the Father, so God also is emotional! God understands and is deeply touched by what you are going through.
Though God may seem quite, but He knows exactly how you feel, and is going to show up just at the right time. God is passionate about you. He placed a lot of value on you. You are the most valued of all his creation, so don’t let anyone demean you. Never forget this; 1)Nothing takes God unaware.
2)No trial/trouble can stay beyond the time God approves.
3)Though you may not be in God’s manifest presence, you are surely in his omnipresence. God is with you!(Matt 28:20, Isa 41:10).
When challenges seem like they want to overwhelm you, tell yourself ‘I am not helpless, God is in total control of my life. The lines are falling unto me in pleasant places. Jesus has given me victory over life’s situations. I have a goodly heritage. Christ in me is the hope of glory!’
