Has the Fog Settled In?


When life comes crashing down on you like a wave, when words have stung, when actions leave you wanting revenge, do you blame God or do you lean on Him?  Do you doubt everything you believe and have said is real.

It's one thing to say He is.....

                                           Strong Tower,

when things are going great, but as soon as you face a storm, do your views change?

It's easy to throw the blame, to accuse, to try to find reason when life doesn't make sense.  But why should we question our feelings and thought of Him just because things aren't ok.  God never promised that life would be easy, smooth sailing, lucky-go-happy every day.  What He did promise is that He would be with us through every up and down.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever!  That if we lean on Him, trust in Him, He will see us through. 

Does that mean He answers every pray like we want, does that mean He gets us what we think we need right then, does that mean it all works out how we plan...NO!  We see here and now; He sees the past, present and future.  His plan is perfect, it takes into perspective the whole view from beginning to end.

We must take a moment and truly think about what it means to live by FAITH.  I challenge you the next time life smacks you down, spoken words have stung, or the actions have left you wanting revenge, lean on Him.  Cling to Him, to His promises, to His goodness, to His faithfulness.  Try to live out truly walking by FAITH and not sight.  Don't let difficulty sway your thoughts.

"So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."  2 Corinthians 6:6
