Trusting God in hard times.

Posted on Mon, Dec 8, 2008

Unlike men who make promises and change with changes in future circumstances, no future condition can limit or change God’s plans because His promises have the guaranty of His limitless knowledge, infinite wisdom, almighty power, inexhaustible resources, solid integrity and endless possibilities. He knows all things and controls all things. All things exist for and in Him and evolve around His will. “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” Colossians 1:16

We write today to encourage you to continue to trust God. Particularly, we persuade you to be encouraged, who have asked for prayerful help to  meet pressing needs. We have spent several moments in private and yesterday during our Sunday service in our congregational prayer we, also passionately prayed for those needs. And will, subsequently, continue to bring them to God for whom nothing is impossible.

 

Do not be swerved from your trust in God. No matter what you face, trust God to keep His word concerning you because He can not lie and will never change. “…the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for he is not a man, that he should repent” 1 Samuel 15:29

 

 Unlike men who make promises and change with changes in future circumstances, no future condition can limit or change God’s plans because His promises have the guaranty of His limitless knowledge, infinite wisdom, almighty power, inexhaustible resources, solid integrity and endless possibilities.  He knows all things and controls all things. All things exist for and in Him and evolve around His will. “For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.” Colossians 1:16

 

Therefore, in hard times - economic, social, legal, marital, health, or what have you? Simply trust God. No difficulty is greater than God. “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God” Luke 18:27.  Hold God to His word and believe that He will accomplish His plans concerning you. It may tarry; still trust Him because His thoughts of you are good and not evil.

 

Stop and think! Then consider Abraham, Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:18-21

 

Sometimes,  due to the severity of your difficulties, your feelings may suggest that God does not care. Yes! He cares. What loving and able parents will deliberately look way from their children’s dire needs when they can meet those needs?  God is greater than any parent and He is well able to meet all your needs.   He esteems His word and will never forsake you. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.” Isaiah 49:15

 

 So, when you talk to God in your prayers, concentrate not on your problems, but on God’s Might. And praise Him continually for meeting those needs. Believe and confess that you have received your requests.  Hold Him to His word and consider that He is God and will do what He says He will. Be blessed.
