Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today is usually Freedom Friday but we are going to do something different for this week. Today, I’m going to spend some time encouraging you. Next week, we will resume with sharing stories that exemplify freedom. Sit back, read and enjoy!
Have you ever been in a situation where they seemed to be no way out? There seems to be no hope of things getting better?
What do you do?
Have you ever prayed and heard God say nothing? Or, have you ever had to trust/ believe God in spite of what you see?
Friends, I am in the place in my relationship with God where I have to follow Him even when I don’t see Him guiding me. I have to trust in His promises even when I don’t hear His voice. I think that sometimes God is silent on purpose to test the intentions of our hearts. It’s like He wants to see if we will love Him in spite of what we are going through, in spite of what we are dealing with. I’m here to encourage you and let you know that what you are going through is only a test, a test of faith/belief.
You know, it’s one thing to say you have faith in something, but it’s another to put that faith into practice. Sometimes, God doesn’t move the way we think He should in our situations. This doesn’t mean that God can’t move in our situation ( He can do all things), maybe He is choosing a different way to move. It’s easy to doubt that God cares and that He’s concerned during these times of silence, but we must not give up our faith in God. God use these times of silence to test our belief, it is in these moments that we discover if we truly believe God’s word- our words are tested during hard times.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1 NIV)
What you are going through is just a test. You can make it! You can win! Keep believing in God’s word, keep trusting Him because before you know it- He’s going to work everything out! Yes, He will.
Until next time,
