Have you ever prayed and pleaded with God over a personal matter and still had the answer be no? Have you ever laid your heart bare and thought surely God will have mercy on me? Yet, what if God’s mercy didn’t look exactly like the manuscript you sent up to Him? What if God’s mercy came through hardship, as your tears fall to the ground? Our faithful and just Creator looking beyond our desires and reaching our needs.
Why God? Why me? Why do hardships come and trials rage around us? We question. We grow discouraged. Yet, aren’t we supposed to be thankful in all things? How is this possible when we can barely keep our head above water?
How often do we feel like we take one step forward and two steps back? Why is that? What can we do to have victory in Christ on a continuous basis? Life throws some whirlwinds. We live in a battlefield. Life is not easy, and sometimes it seems like we are never given a chance to reach up for a breath of fresh air. We start to get weak in the knees, and bingo! Satan is right their prepared to attack.
