God is in your Story!

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭48:10‬ ‭AMP‬‬
Indeed, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested and chosen you in the furnace of affliction.

One of our biggest challenges in life is to be tested.  We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Have you ever experience something that you felt was divinely inspired not to take place? Have you ever prayed for God to do something, only to see opposite occur? It can be overwhelming and frustrating. When God doesn’t do what we would like our natural inclination to do, it makes us vulnerable. Did we not pray enough? Did we not study enough? God’s ways are not our ways, and God’s thoughts are beyond our own. You have to trust that God is in your story. I can testify that our prayers are being answered in God's perfect timing. Do not intend to take the pen away from the author of your story. God’s plan for you is to trust him.

Waiting for something to happen is often very difficult for many people to do. As we wait, we get anxious. Many times we give up waiting and try to do things in our way, instead of waiting for Gods promises. Many times we give up waiting because we were disappointed before. Life is about waiting and learning. If our kids would get everything they ask for, would they learned anything in life? Do we give our kids everything they ask for? The answer is no. Can you imagine giving your car to your 10 year old child only because they asked? There is a time in life when we are not ready to receive everything we ask for either because we are immature or maybe we wouldn’t vaporize it. Maybe God is after our hearts. He wants us to be humble. Perhaps, he is changing our hearts as we continue to pray not because we need something but, because we need to change our hearts. Maybe as we pray we need to forgive. When we don't get what we ask in prayer is not God saying no, instead we are not ready. I encourage you readers to trust and wait on the Lord. As I write here a little of my first book, I can testify, that even with all my bruises and scars; God was in my story. I can guarantee you that God has not drop or lost the pen. Believe that your story has a beautiful and powerful testimony for the Glory of God. Do not give up.

“Living with faith and courage is something that life requires of each of us. Never, absolutely, never give up! Never give in no matter what! Fight it through! And I promise you something with all my heart God will help you.

  1. Very positive and powerful message. We never know how much potential we have, until we place our trust in the Lord and the power of His word. 👋
