He is sovereign. And we cannot know more than God.
Sometimes God uses "the wilderness" to get our attention.
If we believe that God is good and that He loves us fiercely, then our faith and trust in this truth can give us hope, even in the darkest of times.
The struggles we face, the heartache and deep need for healing may not feel "good," but we can believe that God is working in it — ultimately for our redemption and His glory.
How do we know He loves us? The cross. He sacrificed His son for you. He chose death on a cross for you. He became flesh and experienced pain, betrayal, persecution, rejection, brutality, so that we could be free.
Love costs and He paid the ultimate price.
Today I'm sharing a song by Laura Story called Blessings. Listen to it. Contemplate the questions asked in it. Let the Truth of it sink into your soul.
We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
And all the while You hear each desperate plea
And long that we'd have faith to believe
'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops?
What if Your healing comes through tears?
And what if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near?
And what if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?
