How is everyone’s Sunday going?? I hope well!! Mine has been amazing so far!! Praise God!! Well, today I want to share a message that has been placed on my heart recently. I thought it might help someone out there because it helped me!! I want to speak a little about trusting God and knowing that He is always there for you.
Have you ever prayed and thought that God wasn’t helping you or answering your prayers. No matter what you needed help with or what you were praying for, it seems as though God had forgotten about you or wasn’t there for you? I have felt that way many times. But I want to assure you that God is ALWAYS there, He is ALWAYS listening, and He ALWAYS answers prayers! The Bible tells us in Psalm 9: 10, “Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” All this means is that, The LORD hears you. If you seek Him, you are sure to find Him because He is ALWAYS with you at all times. You can be sure that as long as He hears you, He is coming to help you. It says so in Isaiah 35: 4, “Tell everyone who is discouraged, “Be strong and do not be afraid! God is coming to your rescue, coming to punish your enemies.””
I want to encourage you not to give up or become discouraged. God loves you and He cares about anything that concerns you -(Joyce Meyers). God has not left you out there stranded. We may not understand everything. The Bible even tells us in Proverbs 3:5 “Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the LORD with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.” There had been countless times where I was praying, I feel like God wasn’t helping, and right there in prayer I’m saying to Him, “LORD, why aren’t you helping me, Why aren’t your helping me.” But I was wrong to even say that or think that. I was so caught up in not getting the immediate help that I wanted and coming to my own conclusion that He wasn’t helping me. When in all actually, I should have been still and known that He is God.
In the time where I thought that God wasn’t helping me, I look back now and this verse reminds me that I shouldn’t lean on my own understanding but trust in God because I know that He will never leave me nor forsake me. And the same goes for you. God will never leave you nor forsake you. Instead of questioning God and His helping you, you should do what verse 6 say, “In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.” Therefore, when you feel like questioning if God is still there with you or is He answering you, seek Him more; Trust Him more. You will find Him and He will make straight your path unto victory.
With that being said, I know for a fact that God ALWAYS answers prayers. Therefore, I know that God is ALWAYS listening to us. And I know that God is ALWAYS with us and helping us. I want to challenge you today to start trusting God with everything you have in your everyday life. Knowing that Psalm 46:1 is true, “God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of troubles.” Hope you all got as much help as I got from today’s message. Have a really Blessed week. Stay strong in the LORD and Keep Him first place!! God bless!! 🙂
God is Love,
O, LORD! My Strength!
Many Blessings! DLaShawn
