So a while ago, something happened at home that threw almost everyone off balance. We received a particular blessing from God after much prayer.
Then after a while, it got taken back. For example you were looking for a job, and after a long time of waiting in prayer, you get the job in a way that you know, God has answered.
Then after a while, you receive a sack letter. Well it was not a job in this case, but something similar.
I was literally heart broken, so I went back to God. You see when you go through troubles, God expects you to come to Him. Not to go away from Him. He said in Phil 4:6 “Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.” So I went back to Him.
When things don’t go according to how God has spoken , you have the right to go back to Him. In fact, He excepts you to. We are all insufficient in our knowledge and God knows. Only when we go back to Him, will we be able to understand what is happening around us, at every point in time.
So He told me , “I don’t see like you do. You’re limited in how see. You don’t even know what’s happening outside your gate. I see beyond you.”
I got all the clarification and comfort I needed.
God expects you to come to Him and reason with Him, when things are not going well, even when He has spoken concerning it.
Go back to the place of prayer and sort things out with Him, always.
I’ll end with this hymn
“What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!”
Have a wonderful day ahead. ❤
