Sometimes we wonder what God is doing in our lives. I wrote a message earlier this year entitled “He is pruning you for better”. We may not understand what God is doing, but it will work out for our good. Remember God’s timing is not our timing (Habakkuk 2:3).
This year has been a roller coaster for many of us. A lot of the world is still picking up the pieces from the pandemic. This may be making you question God; which is understandable.
Trusting God can be hard when there seems no way out (Proverbs 3:5-6). You may wonder if things will ever change. The good news is that trouble doesn’t last always. The sun does come out after the rain.
God’s ways are so much higher than our ways as it says in His word (Isaiah 55:8-9). You can make it with God on your side. There is greater on the other side.
Two years ago I felt God had deserted me. I felt lost and abandoned. It was scary picking up the pieces after losing the things I worked hard to establish. I learned that God had so much more in store for me. I realize now it didn’t feel good, but it worked out for the good.
Living in this unpredictable world where unfortunate things happen can be stressful. We can be at the end of our rope looking for better. I’ve been there and wondered how would I make it. I thought how could I live for God and endure so much. God reminded me that my suffering was setting me up for greater.
You are bigger than what you are going through. You can win each and every battle you face. There is more on the other side of the pain. Climb your mountain and run your race. Leave no stone unturned.
Stop looking back and go forward. God said to Moses “why do you cry to me tell the Israelites to go forward” (Exodus 14:15-16). Go forward. There is greater on the other side.
