“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding’. Those are God’s words of encouragement found in Proverbs 3:5. These words carry much meaning than meets the eye.
Sometimes we go through so much pain and hurt that it seem like even God does not care, when in actual fact, He does. Problems in life at times do get the better of us and there are those that just have no answers to.
The Bible says God is above all, no matter the situation, he has the solution. This article is aimed at giving you words that will uplift your spirit and show that He cares. They will all be taken from the Holy Book which I believe; has the very words of God.
God Works In Mysterious Ways
Take for example, the above mentioned verse, to me it evidently suggest that ‘God works in mysterious ways’. It might happen that you are for the thought that He has neglected you when in actual fact He is rebuilding your life. The only virtue a person needs to have when it comes to the Almighty is patience. An understanding of how He operates needs to be established first.
His ways are not your ways. Isaiah 55:8-9 says ‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts’. So one not only need to rely on his perception but trust God to handle the situation.
When Jesus was tempted by the Devil, his replies were based on what the Holy Scripture said, not on His understanding. This symbolizes that if you have trust in God you will leave all problems to Him. That is if you believe in His power and capabilities. Upon reading Matthew 6:31-34 you will realize what it is that God really needs you to concern yourself about. These are words of Jesus the Son of God who said that he is sent by the father and all that He says is from the Father. God’s desire is for you to seek him and He will take care of the rest (Psalms 37:4).
Faith or rather belief plays an important role when it comes to God. If you consider for instance God’s words of encouragement found in Jeremiah 29:11-12, which states that God knows the plans he has for you and they are not evil, to give a future and hope. It goes on to say that you will have to pray to Him and He will hear you.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:7-11 that if you persist in what you want and never give up you will get it. We can make an example here of Abraham who was promised a son. He got so old that his wife reached menopause. Even when that was the case, they never gave up trying and miraculously Sarah gave birth.
So whatever the situation, God has an answer and is able to deal with it. After all he created the heavens and the earth. What is your problem compared to that? God’s words of encouragement are only found in Holy Bible and are worth giving a try because that’s where you will come to find what God is really like.
