IF it doesn't happen the way you want it to? or at all? Will you still believe He is good? Will you still praise Him and worship Him if the unthinkable happens? IS Jesus dying on the cross so you can have eternal life enough?
Or do you want God's hand more than His heart?
Is your worship and praise based on your circumstance or is based on God's character?
Jesus said in John 16:33 - in this world we have trouble but take heart, I have overcome the world.
Death, disease, heartbreak, and tragedy. It's hard to imagine that a loving God would allow those things to happen to us. But i want to inform you that just because God doesn't prevent those things doesn't mean He doesn't love you. It doesn't mean He isn't aware of the issue. He knows exactly what's going on with you., down to the number of hairs on your head.
Bu the pain, the worry, the anxiety, the fear - they all still creep in. It's okay to feel those feelings. You're human, it's natural. But it's not okay to let those emotions take over your thoughts and lead your behavior. Once we acknowledge what we feel we must take to God and surrender to Him. We are commanded to take capitve every thought and make it obedient unto Christ (2 cor 10:3-6). And in our weakness, if we can't do it, We can ask God to remove it from us. He is faithful to give us whatever we ask for.
The pain is physical but the fight is spiritual. the unseen affects the seen, but the seen doesn't define the unseen.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. - Hebrews 11:1-3
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world's darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. - Ephesians 6:11-12
Following Jesus doesn't prevent us from experiencing the pain that comes from living in a fallen world. Following Jesus protects our spirit and mind. He gives us peace that passes understanding, strength to endure, love to pour out when all we receive is hate, and a promise that we will overcome. This is not all there is, and this is definitely not in vain. What happens to us isn't always good, but God can and will use it for our good and His glory.
Devastation doesn't change God's faithfulness.
