Just Have Faith

My phone refused to turn on no matter what I did. It was not charging despite having been plugged in during the night. I was a bit frustrated because I use my phone to message several persons and I would not be able to do this.

With restrictions in place due to COVID-19, electronic stores are not opened in my area. And more than that, we are not travelling unless it is of absolute necessity, like going to the doctor or the grocery store.

Now, here was I with a phone not charging and feeling frustrated that someone broke my charger charging a game, or speaker.

I started to complain and was met with,

“Have faith!”

“I know that God can get your phone to work.”

Such faith for one so young. But, that is the faith of children; it knows no limitations and is so complete, and doesn’t hold back anything.

“Go and put the phone to charge for me.”

We fiddled with it for a while and nothing.. Then my daughter went and …”BING!”

The familiar sound of a phone beginning to charge.

God had answered prayer.

But, it was the faith of the children that brought the answer.

I considered my unbelief in this small matter. How could I expect God to move mountains in my life when I didn’t trust Him to charge a phone?

The phone is currently charging. I will once again be able to use it to send messages out to people. But, as I do this, I pray that I am constantly reminded to have faith that:

God is the God of the small things, as well as the big things. 

And I can trust that He can and will answer prayer.

All Things Work for Good

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

This is such a powerful promise that I think many of us overlook.

No matter what we are facing, no matter how dark the clouds that surround us, we know that every trial and every pain that we are experiencing will work out for our good in the end.

Praise God!!!!

Only in the hand of the infinite God of love can mourning be turned to praise, can tears be turned into laughter and sadness be turned into joy!

We may not know when or we may not know how the thing that we are facing will work out for our good, but let us trust to what God has promised and know and believe that it will.

Keep trusting Jesus. The end is at hand. Let us be ready to spend eternity in bliss with the Saviour.
