There are tines when we are all faced with the challenges of life family troubles, marital problems, work issues and other related dysfunctional agendas. Sometimes life can hand you the witch and her broom all at the same time. In these times you might find yourself asking what went wrong? Why is everything spiraling out of your control? Self Check…..is your navigator on?
I am determined to believe that when we don’t understand the challenges of life we have to look to Gods word for direction. There are times that we can be so distracted by our daily routines, that God himself hurls a brick from heaven right into the midst of our situation to get our attention. Many times this can be seen as an attack from the opposer, and if we are not careful confusion will distract us to keep us from seeing the reason for this road block, and that is not him, but God.
What have you been praying? Have you sought God for his direction? Have you asked for his intervention? If you have, look at the road ahead and rest assure that he is answering you. You may not understand it now, but walk a little further down the highway, look over the hill, and rest assure that your answers are waiting there.
What am I saying…I am asking you to grab your life line, (The Word) and hold on to your faith. The scriptures tell us that without faith it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6). If you believe God, how can you not believe that he will deliver you in difficult times? I know you don’t see how right now, but are you looking through your lens or seeing through Gods eyes? Are you trusting your road map, or Gods navigation?
Job said, “Though he slay me yet will I trust in him”. He knew God as his redeemer, The God that gives, and takes, and who is also able to restore. He knew that to trust in God is to hope in him. Have you given up on hope? If you have your navigator is off, and l would like to encourage you to turn it back on. Be like Job….. argue your case, defend your integrity, and know that God has not forgotten you. Be steal. Look. Listen. Remind yourself of his word, listen to his message.
In my conclusion the Psalmist said, ” I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, (those who hope in God) or his seed ( his children) begging bread”. (Psalm 34:25) God Bless….
