This is an encouragement for that person who might be feeling that God is through with them or who is thinking that God has forgotten about them. An article and video by Mr. Solomon Davies.
Let me start here by reminding you of a promise from God we read in Deuteronomy 31:6 – He has promised He will never leave you nor forsake you. That is God your creator speaking to you. I don’t know what you are going through, or what those around you are saying to you, but you must believe this promise from God. He will never leave you as orphan. I might not understand your exact situation, but I am taking this time to tell you that you will get through this. God is not through with you.
Jesus has said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” This means whatever you are going through or whatever the problems might be, God wants you to boldly run to Him, surrender to Him, take your problems to Him and He will give you rest. You might be afraid when you look at the situations around you, but God wants you to exchange your fear for His fear. It is when we fear Him, understanding His greatness, that our fear goes away…The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
No matter what you are going through or what comes your way, trust that this season is preparation for where God is taking you. Don’t you even think about saying to God ”Why me?”, instead say ”Thank you!” knowing He is working in your story. Say ‘thank you’ knowing that God is not through with you. I can’t forget the times in my life my whereby everything in my story looked dead. I thought God had given up on me. I turned to partying, drinking, chasing after girls…and just living for me. I am for ever thankful God never gave up on me. God, the master of the sudden turnaround, was there to resurrect my story and reminded me of the plans He had for me.
Today I look back in my life and see the lie of the enemy; he wanted me to believe that God had abandoned me and he wants you to believe God has abandoned you. Don’t, even for a second, think about giving up by believing the lies of the enemy. God is not through with you. He is working behind the scenes. He is working in your story….and be sure that all things will work together for your good. Just keep trusting and surrendering to His directions. Always remember you can have a relationship with God, you can talk to Him anytime about anything. He’s your Father, He’s cool, and He loves you.
