Have you realized what pain has to do with your growth in the Lord? All of us hate to suffer. We cry out to God day and night to vindicate us from our predicaments and we are always desperate in seeking God for the best of our lives.
However way you look at it, we are always trying to run away from our problems and we hide behind the curtain to remain unseen when situation calls forth for us to pay attention to what we are going through. We like to run away from God because we are unable to bear with the consequences. All of us can identify with our circumstances, but we need to hang on in there and began to examine our situations and seek God as to what we are going through.
God desires that we dialog and talk to Him. He is very interested in our affairs, and He will make time out to show us the answers that we are seeking. We need to be communicating with God on a daily basis, and we must understand God’s heartbeat for us. Whatever situation that you are going though, allow God to prune and shape you, so that you will not run away from your problems.
Problems are meant to prune and groom us and we must not try to deny or escape from it. The real solution to problems is to face it and learn from God as to what He is teaching you. Learn from Him what you are going through and submit yourself to His will in whatever He is saying to you. Learn to be an overcomer in every situation and do not look for a way out when God is trying to draw your attention to your problems.
Many of us fail to reach our destiny in God because we are not learning what God is saying to us each day. We run around busy with our work that we have no time to talk to God about our situations and circumstances.
God wants us to be still before Him and to learn from Him. Every trial and difficulties that we go through is meant to prune us to be like Jesus. Do not take your focus off Him and do not complain and murmur your way through any difficulties, as this will destruct you from fulfilling God’s will for your life. Learn to be a worshipper and trust Him to path a smooth road for you. It is possible to enjoy the blessings of God if we are found to be faithful to Him and remain as a delight and joy to the Lord.
Are you facing insurmountable problems that you have lost your joy and peace in the Lord? Are your problems too big for God and is there anything too hard for God? Remember that God holds you in the palm of His hand. We are that precious to Him that He will lead and direct us to the right course if we have veer ourselves off-course to what He is trying to teach us and not learn from life’s lessons.
Nothing is impossible with God. All things are possible with Him. The only criteria we need is stillness and complete surrender to Him and He will direct and guide our path. Be diligent to seek Him intimately and trust Him for your breakthrough.
God is waiting for you. He wants you to sit at His feet daily and trust Him to bless you in every circumstances. Only God knows what you are going through and you must learn to cry out to Him in your desperateness, so that He can reach out to you. Call upon Him and He will hear your cry. Jer 33:3.
We have a good God that loved us. We must learn to depend on Him and not take things into our own hands. We need to yield to Him and stay close to Him through prayer and intercession. He is calling us to Himself. Be obedient towards Him and He will see you through with life bad experiences.
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things which you do not know.” Jer 33:3.
Cry out to Him…watch Him performed miracles on your behalf.
