Sometimes we face situations that seem so hard, that brings us to a point of such despair that we wonder if God is really there.And if He is there then why is He not answering, why doesn’t He care!
Many of us have faced these situations and some of us are going through these situations right now.
Do you feel like you are all alone in you struggles….your pain? Does it feel like you have no one to turn to, not even God? Do you feel like it is no use praying because things will never change?
The bible tells us something so astounding, something so remarkable…
GOD IS LOVE!! (1 John 4:8)
“But what does that really mean?” you might ask. It means that because of who He is we are never left in our hopeless conditions.
The bible tells us that Love worketh no ill to his neighbour (Romans 13:10). Love does not hurt or cause pain. God is love so He does not hurt or cause pain.
God does not want to see us in pain or hurting. It breaks His infinite heart of love. In fact, He has done and is doing all He can to see that we do not have to continue to hurt or suffer.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
How about saying this another way.
For God so loved YOU that He gave His only begotten Son, that if YOU should believe in Him YOU should not perish but rather, YOU should have everlasting life!!
What wonderful news!! God loves you so much that He has given all for you to win you back to Him so that you don’t have to continue to suffer or hurt or despair, but that you can live forever with Him!!
And He says to each of us “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)
“…lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20).
Beloved Reader, you are not alone in you struggles or pain. God is with you every step of the way. He is hurting along with you. He is upholding you even through your trying times. You might not hear Him, you might not see Him, but He is there. He is ALWAYS there.
God is looking forward to that time when He can wipe away all tears from your eyes, when there will be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain (Revelation 21:4)
God loves you with EVERY part of His being, for indeed every part of His being is LOVE for HE IS LOVE.
Hold onto to Him for He will hold onto you and never let you go!
