Trusting God When Everything In Your Life Seems to Be Going Wrong

13 Apr

Have you ever prayed for something and nothing turned out the way you expected?  Perhaps you failed God during a time of testing (or thought you did) or someone that you trusted and shared your soul with let you down and you feel like it is all your fault. Many Christians experience such pain that at times it is almost impossible to see God’s purposes or plans because of all the heartache that this world can bring; not to mention sin, negative thinking or other worldly passions and strongholds.  Many cannot see themselves as anything but “losers” in God’s kingdom despite Jesus’ promises that He loves us and that He alone holds our future in the palm of his mighty hand.  He alone is the one who will bring us through to greener pastures when the time is right – the only thing he asks of us is that we trust Him with everything that is within us – as this is our first duty as believers in the goodness and grace of Almighty God.

Many Christians struggle with feelings of guilt or betrayal from a spouse, loved one, or co-worker and you mistake these feelings as God’s punishment for a life half lived for his glory.  You beat yourself up and thus negate the grace and love of the Father.  God knew beforehand what you would do and knew before we were born all of our weaknesses and disappointments that we would encounter along life’s journey.  Don’t you dare let the devil lie to you – telling you that you are worthless or a disappointment to God – he does this because he is afraid of you because you are a child of God and greatly loved!  The devil knows how to get each one of us in our minds, telling us if only we had done this right or that then we wouldn’t be in the mess we are now in.  I have had to on more than one occasion decide that our life down here is too short to live with constant feelings of sorrow, depression and regret – as each one of us are needed as believers to do our share to advance Jesus’ kingdom of peace and goodwill to all mankind.  Don’t let the devil lie to you any longer – put down your idols and turn to God!  He alone will help you succeed in all that you do, if only you will trust Him completely for He loves you!

As bad as things may be right now (and trust me America in particular is headed for a tough time in the days ahead) we still serve a God that loves to bless his children with his very best – despite sin, failure and misaligned feelings with his holy and sovereign will.  Many saints throughout the ages have had to endure times of bitter testing – especially when praying for someone or something that is dear to their heart and mind.  I have been praying in particular for someone I love very much for sometime that God would touch their heart and yet I see so little fruit that at times I feel frustrated, confused, disappointed, etc.  Praying for someone can be discouraging especially when you know God has called you to be an intercessor –  especially if we look at the circumstances and not at the Creator of our lives.  If God has called you to pray – then don’t give up!  We have a God that loves to make the miraculous happen – just look at Moses and the Red Sea (see note 1)!  All it takes is for one person to stand in the gap and miracles can happen in and through our lives.  This is what has been on my heart today.

May God Bless you.

John

Note 1:  God did all of this (the parting of the Red Sea, etc) through one man even though he was a murderer when he was young.  Don’t let the devil lie to you saying that you are no good and/or worthless to God – that is one of his best tricks.  God loves you and needs you to be strong for His name’s sake.  So go with God – he has given you the victory and every blessing that you need to live a life pleasing to Him!

Take care and God bless,

John

    I already accept the situation I am in. Lonely due to my wife’s passing. No kits due to stillborns, miscarriages and babies who never lived for a couple of hours, jobless because evil people messed up my bussiness and not been able to get a job I qualified to do. How much more do I have to lose. When is God removing me from his earth? I don’t see why I keep praying. The fact is I am used to it and I hope it’s God’s will.

        I’m sorry to hear about the difficult times you are going through… look to God for wisdom and try to honor your parents as much as possible… I know things can be difficult when dealing with parents… perhaps seeing things from their perspective may help. Take care… John
        Ps. I will pray for you. John

      I hope and pray life is now looking up for you and that you are on the other end of your storm since 2014. Remember Job, he suffered for being a righteous man who trusted and loved God with all of his heart and in spite of all he lost, the humiliation he endured and the critics including his own flesh (his wife), he kept his integrity and did not curse God. His season of immense suffering was long, however he was tried by fire and came out as pure gold, because of his faithfulness to God he received far greater blessings from God than he started with. Keep persevering, it may be long but it won’t be forever, the Lord will not give you more than you can bear, the devil wants us to curse God and die, the Lord wants us to ever give him thanks no matter what circumstances we faith, and confuse the devil.

      Thank you for all these wonderful prayers… This was the real intention behind my blog… To unite would be truth seekers with wisdom and the knowledge to band together and prepare for the coming day of rapture and the judgement that will shortly thereafter take place…

      May Jesus heal the wounds and ignite passion in your souls for difficult days, especially in America are still ahead… The race riots are just the beginning as we were told through his annointed David Wilkerson since before the time I was born… A wonderful praying man who prophesied before the towers fell that something devasting was going to happen…

      He passed away peacefully in a car accident after 50 + full years of public ministry… Never a scandal or character flaw… At least with money ever nor sexually; as many pastors fall who are placed in positions of power before being spiritual mature (a well honed trap by the devil,)thus making true believers look bad.

      Lord bless those, all who have taken the time to comment on this here blog… May you bless them fully with fresh health and a revived passion for your holy word…

      Bless all those who stumble upon this website… May they find the rest and peace and safety they have been looking for in this life and the one to come… The hereafter…

      Your servant in Christ Jesus…
      From the “murder capital” (ex) of the world…

      Detroit, Michigan
      United States…

      John 🙂
