Where is God in Times of Uncertainty
Has there been a time such as this? A time with such fear, anxiety or uncertainty? What an opportunity to press in to God and abide in Him and His word! This is a time to re-evaluate where we put our hope and trust, the world? or in God?
I am reading a book written by Max Lucado called Jesus, the God Who Knows You Name. This book is a great comfort in understanding how important Gods children are to him. God desires for us to trust Him and commit our lives to Him and he will guide and direct our lives. He promises to be with us always through good times as well as difficult times. "Be strong and courageous. do not be afraid or terrified because of them for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6).
I pray during this difficult time that you will take time and spend in prayer and abiding in him through the reading of His word. I tell you there is no better source of joy and peace then spending time in God's presence! "In his presence there is fullness of joy" ( Psalm 16:11).
Max Lucado quotes the following: "If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciplines, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:31-32 ESV). Free from fear, Free from dread. And, yes, free from Anxiety.
Blessings to All,
