…………………….THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…………………….
BE FAITHFUL, EVEN TO THE POINT OF DEATH, AND I WILL
GIVE YOU THE CROWN OF LIFE.
( REVELATION 2:10 *NIV )
There are many times in this life when our faith is put to the
test. Times that we may even feel that God has abandoned us
because a prayer isn’t answered the way we want it to be.
Know that it is written; THOUGH NOW FOR A LITTLE WHILE
YOU MAY HAVE HAD TO SUFFER GRIEF IN ALL KINDS OF
TRIALS. THESE HAVE COME SO THAT YOUR FAITH–OF
GREATER WORTH THAN GOLD, WHICH PERISHES EVEN
THOUGH REFINED BY FIRE–MAY PROVE GENUINE AND
MAY RESULT IN PRAISE, GLORY AND HONOR WHEN
JESUS CHRIST IS REVEALED. ( 1 PETER 1:6-7 )
Also know that sometimes what we pray for isn’t God’s will
for us thus; THIS IS THE CONFIDENCE WE HAVE IN
APPROACHING GOD: THAT IF WE ASK ANYTHING
ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE HEARS US.
( 1 JOHN 5:14-15 )
You see, sometimes what we pray for would actually
hurt us in the long run, and our Heavenly Father is protecting us
from that. Other times we just can’t understand God’s ways for;
NO ONE KNOWS THE THOUGHTS OF GOD EXCEPT THE
SPIRIT OF GOD. ( 1 CORINTHIANS 2:11 )
However, we do know He loves us very much, and would never
abandoned us or deliberately hurt us. So we must keep our faith
knowing that God is with us and that no matter what happens
He is in control!
Therefore it is important that; WE WALK BY FAITH NOT BY
SIGHT. ( 2 CORINTHIANS 5:7 ) trusting that God knows
what is best for us, even if a prayer isn’t answered the way we
want it to be! Amen.
