I’m frustrated! What I expected is not happening. Oh no, but why, Lord? No one understands. I need help now, but none here to help.
Sounds familiar to everyone.
First of all, God cannot choose to not be God. This concept only exist on our mind when we feel disappointed that God did not do what we trusted Him to do.
This happens when we hold onto His promise(s) and did not see it happen.
God’s promises are “yes” and “amen”. It will surely come to pass. It’s just a matter of when. Remember, God honors His Word more than His name.
If you don’t know when an event will take place, you simply wait and on the lookout. If it doesn’t happen at the moment you expected, does this make Him incapable or limited, or a liar? The answer is definitely “No”
So, what happens when we expect Him to do a promise and it does not happen? We surrender to His will. This is because He knows all things and He knows the best.
Learn to accept God both in the good time and also in the bad time. Learn from men of old and those who had gone through and going through a hard time right now and you will see that God has done and He is doing so much good for you than you can ever imagine.
Abraham was and is a good example. He didn’t know when God’s promise of a child will take place, but he waited. Although, he erred and missed it. His mistake still lingers on. At the right time, God visited him and his wife gave birth to Isaac.
God cannot seize to be God regardless of how we feel about Him, or the event of life.
Often, we are in a hurry, thinking that God is not doing His promise. Yes, He is! You just don’t see it with your naked eyes.
Remember, He uses both the good and the bad to accomplish His purpose in life.
God was God in Pharaoh, and God was also God in David.
So, whether it’s a good situation or a bad situation, God is still God.
..but there’s a single situation that God is not God.
When you refuse to believe and doubt this Word, then God can’t be God. God is not God in your life when you doubt Him because He’s incapable of working His good promises in an unbeliever.
Therefore, accept His purpose and His will even when it does not makes sense. God is still God regardless of our condition–good or bad.
Matthew 28:5-6 NIV The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
Jesus, the savior, is not a dead man. He’s no longer among the dead. He is among the living. You cannot find Him here, the angel said. Why?
Because He has risen! Hallelujah!
The disciples and those whose hopes are displaced initially now can rejoice the lamb that died is alive again. The power of resurrection brought Jesus from the grave. And now, we can live again.
Now, we have hope, not only in this life but in the life to come. We are not miserable people wandering this world, but we are confident that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead will work in us and quicken us into glory, and this world will have no place in us anymore.
We will live together with our risen God forever and ever. Amen!
This morning, I went through the verse I had read before, and I found a renewed inspiration.
So Ruth went out to gather grain behind the harvesters. And as it happened, she found herself working in a field that belonged to Boaz, the relative of her father-in-law, Elimelech. Ruth 2:3 NLT
There’s a lot in this verse, but I will break it into one piece in prayers.
May we find ourselves in the right place and at the right time. We shall not miss our rightful place in Jesus’ name.
We shall enjoy God’s grace and favor. God’s mercy shall meet us at the feet of Jesus. We will not miss our blessings by a split of a second.
In the morning, favor meets us. At noon, God’s graciousness won’t leave us, and in the night, His help will remain at our sides. We will not labor in vain.
God’s favor and mercy will bring us closer to our destiny, and we shall fulfill destiny in the name of Jesus.
You will be positioned to your glory and destiny at the right place at the right time.
But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord ; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord , have spoken! Isaiah 54:17 NLT
A current season only reminds us that another season will come. Snow time only reminds us that the Spring will come and when the Springs finally arrives, we know that the summer is in the corner.
The rain only reminds us that the flowers will soon sprout. And the hard soil reminds us that we should wait a little more and the rain will soften the hard crust. It is appropriate that a farmer who has spent the early Spring planting to expect harvesting in the Fall. A hardworking student gets success. Diligent entrepreneurs experience business growth and profit. A loving husband enjoys his marital home, and a caring wife wins the love of his lover. The present problems and challenges of life are just a reminder that the glorious season will come, and we will smile again. Weeping endures only for a moment, but joy comes in the morning. Challenges are just a reminder that we can patiently find the solution that makes for a better living. Challenges are a season, and it will pass. When you have the desired results, and the solutions are in your hands, your season of rejoicing is here.
