For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14 NKJV
Are you facing difficult circumstances? If you are not I am sure you know someone who is. Habakkuk faced the same issues we face today.
If God is in control of everything why do bad things happen to good people? Why are so many people suffering? How could our lives be transformed so quickly? The Lord is not offended when we ask questions. Turning to God for answers is an act of faith!
We would not turn to God for answers if we did not believe He is in control of all things. We would not seek His wisdom if we did not believe God knows all things. There would be no confusion if we did not believe God loves us.
The Christian life is often described as a fight because it can be a struggle to maintain our faith during difficult circumstances. It is described as a run because we need the stamina only Jesus can provide to endure the afflictions and sorrows that beset us!
We must focus on what we know when we are faced with uncertainty.
God loves you. God is for you and not against you. He will never turn His back on you. He will never leave you. He will be with you every step of the way as you follow Jesus!
Our circumstances do not change God’s character. The Lord is just as faithful in times of trial and turmoil as He is when we stroll along the mountain tops of peace and blessing!
Jesus does not expect us to stuff our feelings or pretend all is well when it is not.
God wants you to bring everything to Him in prayer. He wants you to be thankful even when you think you do not have much to be thankful for. Our faith will bear fruit. We will spend eternity with Jesus. We will know the reality of unrestrained and unending Joy!
Our trials and suffering will become no more than a distant memory. The old things will fade into oblivion. All things will be made new. That includes us. Our perfect glorified bodies will match our spiritual state. We will worship God in the beauty of Holiness!
The Earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God. There will be no more crying death or sorrow. We will witness with our own eyes the fruit of our faith in Jesus!
Trust Jesus with your trials and hardships. Trust Jesus with your life!
The faithful will see the great and mighty works Jesus accomplished in us and through us when His glory is revealed!
Set you heart on the glory to come. Follow Jesus. When the earth is filled with the knowledge of God’s glory as the waters cover the sea you will know that you are home!
