Have you ever been through a hard time and wondered where God was? I have. God never left me. I turned from God and thought that I could control the outcome of situations in my life. God is so good. God waits for you to call to him. If you seek God, you will find him. You have to give up your control. You have to let go and completely trust in God. At first, its hard. Over time, it gets easier and easier. I learned that God has a better plan for me. In fact, God’s plan is better than anything I could have imagined. I wouldn’t have even known to pray for the things that God knows, and I do not. God created all things and knows all things. God works for our good and for the good of all those who love him. Praise God.
There are many accounts of people in the bible going through difficult times. We can read them and learn from them. God forgives us, when we seek forgiveness. In the bible King Nebuchadnezzar would not acknowledge God for a time. Finally, he did.
At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever.
His dominion is an eternal dominion;
his kingdom endures from generation to generation.
All the peoples of the earth
are regarded as nothing.
He does as he pleases
with the powers of heaven
and the peoples of the earth.
No one can hold back his hand
or say to him: “What have you done?”
–Daniel 4:34-35 (NIV)
Praise God, the most high. Honor and glorify him who lives forever. God reigns over eternity. His kingdom is always there from generation to generation. All the people on earth live and die. God remains. God does what he wants with the powers of heaven. God created us and does what he wants with his people. Nobody can stop the Lord almighty or has the right to question what he does.
It is good and right to respect the power of the Lord. He is good. So, so good. God will go after that one little lost sheep and bring it back home. God will pour blessings on us, just because he loves us. God will listen to our prayers and give us more than we prayed for, in his perfect timing. God will fill us up with the Holy Spirit and give us a sense of peace and fulfillment greater than anything that we can imagine. We don’t need to be afraid about anything. God will show us the way. Once we take a step into the unknown by putting our trust in God, we start to see a bit of the wonders of God. There is so much that we don’t know and don’t see. God only knows. Praise God for all he has done for us.
Praise God! Thank you God, for being so good to us. Thank you God, for always listening to our prayers. Thank you God, for giving us more than we ask for. Thank you for giving us the Holy Spirit to fill us with peace. God thank you for rebuking Satan. We can never sing your praises enough!
