God is always working for our good. Even when life seems hopeless and we feel the darkness of evil surround us…God is with us. Reach out to Him in prayer…true, honest, sincere prayer that is delivered with belief that He is there listening to you. If your heart doesn’t truly believe in God and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God than your words are just sound. We get frustrated because God does not respond the way we want or the way we think He should…that is not trust in God. God does answer our prayers and He does provide us guidance. The only reason we miss it is because the self is powerful and stubborn and won’t get out of the way. God created you, He knows all about you and what you are going through in this world…He loves you, surrender your situation to Him and listen…He is caring for you in a far better way than you can do yourself. I pray we all do a better job of giving ourselves to God’s time in the New Year. Amen.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:9
