I love this! If you belong to the Lord and you know He hears and answers your prayers, why would we see God in the shadow of our problems instead of seeing our problems in the light of God’s power??? Today’s post will hopefully serve as a faith booster. Just as we need boosters for some vaccines, we need faith boosters along the way.
We are God’s chosen and He will hear and answer our prayers. The Lord’s people will not be ignored. David was king by divine decree, and we are the Lord’s elect in the same manner. Never be afraid to ask God to defend you when enemies threaten to overthrow your soul. There is power from God that He gives us when we pray and seek His face. When we are on our knees and at our weakest, that’s when God’s strength takes over and we become inspired and filled with faith.
The way we look at our problems matters to God. He wants us to consider His awesome power and the magnitude of it first – and see the LIGHT of God’s power before we look at our problem. So many times, we look at our problems and of course they seem so huge – and we doubt God’s ability to fix it, so the problem seems to overshadow the power of God. We all know that a problem can cast a large shadow, but we need to practice seeing the larger light of God’s power through our eyes of faith.
Problems make shadows. Shadows are dark and creepy, not to mention depressing. It takes zero faith to focus on problems. Everyone has them, but only those who are set apart for God know that they don’t have to make their problems the main thought in their mind. We have faith that God’s light and power are working in our lives. When we hand our problems to Him – we know that God is working it all out. Does that sound like something that is depressing? Nope – it’s the opposite – that would be the JOY of the Lord… the joy that the world doesn’t understand. I’m so glad I know it – and I hope you do too. Love, peace, mercy, grace and JOY from God. I’ll take it! 🙂
