Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you’re wondering where God is? Based on the circumstances you’re facing, He appears to have taken a vacation. We know there is nothing farther from the truth. God promises over and over in His Word that He’s there for us [Deuteronomy 31:6, 8, and Joshua 1:5]. He said He will be there when we cry out to Him [Jeremiah 33:3].
So if we know He is with us, do we believe He is able to intervene on our behalf? In Isaiah 50:2 God is speaking. He says “Was my arm too short to deliver you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you?” The obvious answer is “NO!” There is nothing impossible for God [Luke 1:37]. In fact, Matthew 19:26 says “with God all things are possible.”
He created the heavens and the earth [Genesis 1:1]. Everything that is, He created. Therefore, everything is subject to Him. God trumps circumstances! No matter what your situation or how bleak things look when, you factor God in His peace falls upon you [John 14:27].
What is your situation? What are your circumstances telling you? Don’t stop there or distress and despair will settle in. Go one step further… What is GOD telling you? My current favorite verse (I have different ones all the time depending on what I’m going through) is 1 Thessalonians 5:24: The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it. God is faithful. “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” [2 Corinthians 9:8, emphasis mine]. What do you need to trust Him with today?
