We have probably all read the P.U.S.H acrostic , pray until something happens…
In reading my devotion this morning it took me to look at some truths in our lives- not just mine and Jeff’s- but in every believer.
What happens when IN the urgent, knee buckling circumstance -prayer doesn’t get answered the way we had hoped?…..
We keep ON believing and praying. For HIS will, not our own.
When the loved one dies, instead of being healed on this earth; when the divorce is final; when the teen rebels; when the money runs out; when the house burns down; when the car won’t start; when the pink slip is issued; when the cupboard is bare….. On and on we could go- & you probably have so many more circumstances in your life you could list– but what do we do–as believers when we pray for that miracle– and yet the circumstances don’t change? We remain.
We remain clinging to the One who saved us. The true and only HOPE of this world. We pick ourselves up, and carry on.
The miracle DOES TAKE PLACE. THE PRAYER IS ANSWERED, however, in a way that brings all eyes to HIM as He does restore our soul and leads us in the path of righteousness– always.
Our dire circumstances does not negate who He is or what He can do. HIS goal is to reveal Himself to us and be revealed to the word through us.
Weep sister (and brother), in the struggle, but don’t forget Who called you, paved the way for you, and has great plans to use you…..
Push your way through the bars of your situation that has seemed to close you off and bind your heart -and look to HIM,…..and give HIM praise and glory all along the way. In THIS, others shall know — HE IS THE CHRIST.
“He renews my life; He leads me along the right paths for His name’s sake. Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff — they comfort me.”
Psalms 23:3-4 HCSB
