Life is not making any sense right now! Since I’ve committed all I have to serving Jesus Christ, I’m faced with more temptations and distractions than ever before. It seems like the more I try to do what’s right, the more everything goes wrong. It makes me want to give up and give in!
Emergencies, crisis, and all the circumstances of life don’t take God by surprise. He is in complete control! God saved you for one reason. Everything you go through in this life is to conform you to the image of Christ, and to bring glory and honor to the Lord.
You may not understand why you have to go through it, but how you respond to these trials and temptations right now, will determine what happens then: the day you stand face to face before Jesus.
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
I Corinthians 13:12
Now I see through a glass darkly. It may not be clear right now. . . the how or why . . . but I have to walk on faith by the glimpses I have right now. Even when my analytical mind just wants to figure it all out . . . to understand how . . . to know why . . . to see what’s going on, I have to trust God is a good, loving God. He knows what He’s doing, even when it makes no sense at all.
When I demand to understand it . . . If I have to have proof . . . If I refuse to submit until I see the proof then it’s no longer faith. Proof negates faith.
I have to have faith that what seems to be a mess right now, God will work it out for His honor and glory, and also for my good. It will all work out, in God’s time.
Tune in to this podcast. Be encouraged to have faith, to trust God, and keep on for Christ. What you do right now . . . who you are right now will be accountable to God then. Whatever pain or suffering, whatever sacrifices you make now in this life, will be so insignificant when you behold the splendor of Jesus Christ then!
