Sometimes we may think all the difficulties around us means God has abandoned us. But God will never leave you or forsake you. But the difficulties will draw us nearer to God not away from God.
Its through the cry to God in weakness that you will find your strength in God. Its through the cry of been heart broken that you will experience the comfort and healing of God. Its through the cry from confusion that you will experience God’s peace. Problems are not meant to shift as away from God, but to draw us nearer to God.
Problems are reminders to let us know we don’t run the world but God does. They are to lead us to seek God’s face and experience His mighty hand as He gives us the breakthrough.
It doesn’t mean we have to go through problems before we glorify God. But our history of breakthrough is a result of God solving our problems.
The problems which you went through in the past gave you a an experience that God can heal, God delivers, God protects, God provides.
In the book of exodus 2:23
The bible says;
Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage.
24: So God heared their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25: And God looked upon the children of Israel, and acknowledged them.
Your problems are not meant to create more problems. Your problems are not to lead you to smoke, or become stressed, or become depressed or destroy you.
Your problem should lead you to the problem solver not a problem maker.
Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” When you are lost, do you head to google maps and ask for direction or do you just keep walking aimlessly. When you are sick do you not seek to be healed.
Your problems are to lead you to God, He alone can solve all problems. The bible says the children of Israel groaned because of their bondage, and they cried out and their cry came to GOD BECAUSE OF THEIR BONDAGE.
God hears our cry. God hears your cry for healing. God hears your cry for provision and God hears your cry for direction. Your problem should lead you to worship,and seek God.your problem is not a sign that God is not near you, its a proof that you need God. Its your cry for protection from God that will cause angels to encamp around you. “1 peter 5:7
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” A problem should trigger a solution. But a solution will not come until action is taken. Our solution Our solution is Jesus alone. But we must take action: pray and seek God’s face for God to resolve the problem.
What’s so amazing is that God does not want to solve your problems so you never come back again. He is not overwhelmed by how big the problems are or how many they are. He’s not overwhelmed, HE CARES ABOUT YOU. When you know someone cares about you, you will go to them with anything. God almighty cares, just lay it all out to Him, tell Him. Its between you and Him personally.
When you haven’t received the answers yet doesn’t mean you give up. Or it doesn’t mean God is not listening. ( Psalm 94:9 Does he who fashioned the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?) God knows best and even though you may think now is the right time for your answers, He knows your future ahead and will answer in the right time and there will be no delay. God is always on time. So don’t give up, continue seeking Him, continue praising Him and be patient.
This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled.If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently,for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
But what’s your intention for crying?
Do you just want God to solve problems when you have problems. Or you want Him when you don’t have problems to. Seek Him in the good times and bad , He cares ,He wants to hear your voice everyday.
