As believers, we all subscribe to the notion that we are loved by God, however trusting in Him is a whole different scenario. I propose that they are believers that love Him, but they are not sure if they trust Him. It seems as if the world changed overnight. The world woke up and COVID19 had taken the world as we know it hostage. It has become imperative for us to decide seemly overnight who we will trust. The news reports, the numerous amounts of texts and emails we have received. For those of us that are still considered essential personnel, many meetings plied with more questions than answers. Or will we turn our attention to God. For a moment join me as we look at a story, not one from a medical professional or even one from a recent press conference one from the BIBLE.
In Judges chapter 6, the Israelites have once again tried it their way, and now they are crying out for help. One of the things that strike me in the chapter is that no matter what, when they were in trouble, the Israelites had a permanent position of crying out for help from the Lord. They understood that no matter what they did, He was still their Father. In the 13th verse of Judges, Gideon asked a question that many of us are asking today. He put it this way," Pardon me, my Lord," Gideon replied, "but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, 'Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?' But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian." To be honest, some of us may feel this way right now. In uncertain times when things appear hopeless or overwhelming, the word of God is always with us. He wants to remind us yet again, that He is not a man that He should lie; so, when your faith is shaken, and you can't trust what you see or hear. Listen to the small still voice of the comforter (The Holy Spirit) that has promised to never leave you or forsake you. Join me today as we lift our voices, to give Him the praises He deserves, because in this ever-changing world the one constant is the word of God.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
