Someway somehow, it turns out to be that most times it is when we are distressed that we realize there is a God we can run to. A God whose Word has the ability to heal. I keep wondering Why lots of times we don’t listen unless we hit dead ends.
Why don’t we just listen from the scratch? Why not listen before setting that plan in motion to get rid of preventable errors?
He spoke the word that healed you, that pulled you back from the brink of death. Psalms 107:20 (MSG)
God speaks in every event or situation around us but we are unwilling to see or hear when things are moving smoothly for us.
Have you ever sat in a church service during your down moments and the message that day was hitting you directly?
What happens when that same message is preached on your happy days? “Oh no! This message is not mine, it belongs to that sister who has a sad face over there”. Your thoughts?
Truth is, that message might’ve been yours but since you have been blinded by external happenings, you do not even realize that the message goes for the man inside you, who is suffering.
I’d love for you to take note that Satan was on earth long before the existence of man and because angels (he is a fallen angel) do not die they have witnessed generations of humans and their behavior in situations, as well as their way of life. Meaning he can predict certain things about you and it will happen. He knows a lot about our humanity but the goodnews is that he cannot comprehend our spirituality.
Very often, it is said that we only remember that God exists only when we go through dire situations. Satan knows this! He knows that we have put God on speed dial with the number 911.
Anytime we make that call, it means it is a life and death situation and he(satan) being a great deceiver, he sometimes allows people to live a life free of trouble. Because he does not want them turning to God. Knowing that our father will hear and deliver us once we repent and turn to Him.
The word of God unveils the truth of who we are in Christ and for that matter, the devil tries as much as possible to keep us in the dark by preventing the word from getting to us. This causes us to be happy on the outside but the spirit within will still be in deep sorrow.
This is a reminder to you that God’s Word speaks to every situation of ours, not only bad ones so let us stop putting limitations on the power of the Word.
I urge you all to start sharing everything with Him, your joy, anxieties, anguish, and excitements, tell Him everything.
Let Him be a part of your life by having a personal relationship with Him and you will see Him at work in every step you take.
Thank you Lord, for revealing your truth to me, help me to be more sensitive to your word so as to live right in it in Jesus name, amen.
