This morning I was feeling disappointed. Life didn’t go the way that I wanted it to yesterday. Does that mean that what I want will never happen?
I read the bible this morning, and I read about Daniel and his friends pure faith. Daniel’s friends walked through fire, because they believed in God. They believed in God whether he answered their prayers or not.
Later in the day, I read how Thomas would not believe that Jesus rose from the dead, unless he sees the nail marks in his hands, fingers and sides.
The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.”
So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.”
—John 20:25 (NKJV)
Aren’t we all a “Doubting Thomas” occasionally? When I don’t get what I prayed for, I feel disappointed. Sometimes, I thank God and pull myself back up. Some days, I wallow in self-pity.
Reading these verses today reminded me that I shouldn’t have to see, to believe that God is working his good works on my behalf. If I truly have faith, I believe that God’s plan is the absolute best plan for me.
God works miracles and mighty wonders. When we receive an answer to our prayers, we sometimes brush it aside and ask for something else. Why do we quickly forget the amazing things that God has done for us?
How great are His signs,
And how mighty His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And His dominion is from generation to generation.
—Daniel 4:3 (NKJV)
God is here through every generation. God never fades. God continues to have mercy on us with his mighty wonders.
Thank you for reading my blog today! I hope that you have a great evening.
