We’ve all had those times in life where things didn’t work out the way we had planned. It seems like everything you have tried in a certain situation has not succeeded, or you are in a season of trusting God for the next steps because in the natural there seems to be no more solutions.
It can be tempting to want to give up during these frustrating times. It can be difficult to admit, but we sometimes even wonder why a God who loves us would allow certain things to happen in our lives or in the world around us. However, it’s knowing that God loves us that gives us strength to keep persevering. He has a way of revealing His love and light in even the darkest times.
The reality is that we are not going to always know everything or understand everything. Things will not always make sense to our natural minds. I heard a minister once say that if we are going to serve God wholeheartedly, there will be times we have to be comfortable with “not knowing“. He reveals things He wants us to know in His time and in His way, and certain things He may choose to leave a mystery to us.
One of the many joys of walking with Jesus is that He is never void of solutions. Everything that we encounter is part of God’s greater plan. Nothing that we go through is ever wasted, because He promises to work all things together for our good when we love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).
When all else seems to fail…
We can be thankful that Jesus Christ is always the same:
Hebrews 13:8 NLT, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
We can be thankful that we serve a God who is all wise and all knowing:
1 Timothy 1:17 KJB, “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
1 John 3:20 NLT, “Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.”
We can be thankful He promises to supply our needs:
Philippians 4:19 ESV, “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
We can be thankful the Word of God will stand forever.
Isaiah 40:8 NLT, “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”
When all else seems to fails it just means we have finally come to the end of ourselves and we get to see the glory of the Lord revealed in our lives. The hope that we have in Jesus will never leave us empty.
Romans 10:11 NKJV, “For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
When all else seems to fail keep trusting Jesus one day at a time. He is faithful and will never fail you.
