If God Has A Plan… Then Why…

Jeremiah 32:17,  “Ah, Lord God!  Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm.  There is nothing too hard for You.”  

There is nothing in this world that you or I can face that is too difficult or that takes God by surprise!  He is able to do above and beyond anything that we can possibly imagine!  I believe that with my whole heart and I have seen Him do things that only He could do and I will also be the first to tell you that ~ that doesn’t mean that everything in your life is going to be perfect and that troubles won’t come and that your answer will come when you think it should because sometimes those things are there and allowed to help grow us into who we are called to be.  

Sometimes it takes a storm to get us back on course!  Sometimes all Hell comes against you and there just doesn’t seem to be a reason on earth why God would allow it, but you must trust Him and His sovereignty and goodness and know that He still has a plan and He sees and He will bring you through it better if you will just give it to Him and allow Him to work in you.  The world is watching ~ they are looking for answers and I know that sometimes when you pray and your answer seems delayed it can be easy to wonder why, but sometimes they need to see us stand strong and they need to see us cling to our hope found only in Him.  Sometimes being the light isn’t all about everything in our lives being perfect because life here on earth is just not perfect.

What hope do you have when you feel as though you are in the fire and you can’t seem to find any answers and your prayers don’t seem to be getting past the ceiling and you have waited so long and yet ~ nothing?  Will that fire last forever?  Are you all alone?  Did you miss something? No – No – Probably not!  If satan is after you then you must be doing something right and you must be headed in the right direction and God hasn’t left you He is working and He will do what He said He would!  Your hope is in Him and He has that plan in the works just as it says in Jeremiah 29:11-13, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.   You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”  Do not give up and don’t cave in to those negative thoughts that keep trying to work their way into your mind.  God didn’t bring you this far to just bring you this far, but it is a choice to grow in the fire.  

I would love to be able to always write that everything is always going to be great and God will never allow anything to come against you, but it is in the struggles that we grow and His plans for you require growth.  We must continually grow in our walk with Him!  So, are there answers coming?  Yes!  Is God still working?  Absolutely! Does He see and does He care?  Always!  We are living in tough times so there will be struggles so will we be found faithful?  Will we continue to trust Him because that is where His best and His answers are found?!  We always have hope!  God is on our side!  Nothing is too difficult for Him, including healing your broken heart, mind, body… He has you in the palm of His hand!  He sees you and He not only knows your name He has a plan and He is in the process of fulfilling it so cling to Him and trust Him.  Pray and ask Him to help your unbelief if you are struggling, but don’t give up.  He will get you through to the other side!
