When we go through painful times of struggle or suffering, the one thing we want most from God is answers. We think that if He would just explain why He is allowing us to hurt so badly, things would be better. But the truth is, God’s explanations would only raise more questions. Answers are not what we need. Instead, we should pray for a fresh revelation of God’s greatness, because once we catch a glimpse of His greatness and glory, all of life and its struggles will be put into perspective, and we will be able to see that He is indeed in control and He knows what He is doing, even when we don’t understand.
No Fear In Love
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. We live our lives in fear of; public speaking, losing control of situations, losing our job, having our inabilities found out, the unknown, confrontation, even death. If you are afraid, you have not allowed God to love you. We must accept God’s love on His terms.
