I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Did you ever just feel like the world is against you? Nothing seems to be going your way. You keep trying figure it out but nothing happens. I’m here to tell you don’t give up. Ever! You are not alone and you do not have to figure this out alone.
First of all the world can seem against you because we are not of this world. We belong to God. Until we surrender to His Will we can find ourselves in constant struggle against it. The more you are for what happens in this world the more troubles you will have. That is not to say that devoting your life to God will bring any less trouble if fact you could even have more trouble. The big difference is now you have God by your side. Fighting your battles. He will get you through the storm but He can also use that storm to shine Light on His glory and grace He has given us
Without God we can feel utterly alone because deep down we feel that separation from God. A separation we have chosen ourselves because God is always s waiting on us. We have to only reach out to Him. He will never force us to come to Him. We get to choose this freely Why you ask yourself would you choose to go this alone?
God’s Will and Plan may seem to take forever! Rest assured though! He has it all figured out in His timing. He knows the bigger picture we cannot see.
If you are a parent you may understand this because when your children are young they don’t always understand your rules and your ways but when they grow up and become parents they begin to see and appreciate what kind of foundation you laid for them in their lives
Our Heavenly Father does the same. When we are separated or young in our faith we don’t understand what God is doing. We can even find ourselves getting angry at God and questioning everything but as in our walk we grow closer to Him and mature in our faith we start to understand what He is doing. Maybe not completely but we learn to have faith and trust in Him
So don’t give up. God loves you and while you may not understand, walk closer to Him and feel safe in His Love. He will never give up on you if you choose Him. He will never abandon you. He is waiting for you right now!
God sent His only Son to teach us of His Love and to die for our sins. Jesus who was without sin took upon all of our sins and died and conquered death so we may live in eternity with our Heavenly Father. How amazing is that? That truly has touched my heart and fills me so completely knowing God love me and loves you that much!
You are never alone. Reach out to God. He will guide your path!
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
