We see it from the early Bible times. God asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac in the land of Moriah. It must have been one tall order that one, having to give up his son but Abraham obeyed God. He did not get to sacrifice his son as God provided a ram caught in the thicket by his horns.
Many times God will ask the seemingly impossible of a Christian. It could present as a difficult request for him to make to the person but God knows just what he is doing. It could be that God requires patience with a troublesome child and one might wonder at the wisdom of God in this. Might even be a struggle of a painful illness that God is letting you endure.
At times God allows us to go through terribly trying times so that when he turns around the situation we can learn to depend on him. It delights God when we put our trust in him no matter what might be going on in our lives. To win our trust God takes us through these difficult times so that we can learn to call on him. Then when he gets us out of it we can be forever grateful to him for his ever present help.
Those who have overcome the greatest trials carry with them the most powerful testimonies. It is in those times when no one but God will help the situation that get us constantly crying out to him for help. God is there in the midnight hour when we fall face down in supplication to him. He is there when we have prayed all we can and words fail us. He hears those wordless prayers of a heart too burdened to utter a word. Those falling tears that fall from out eyes never go unnoticed to God.
I can testify to the faithfulness of God in my life. My testimony comes from instances of so much pressure that I could not have borne were it not for his grace. I have seen the provision of God in this life that was nothing but miraculous. I have witnessed his saving power on chariots of Glory come down to save me. I can surely proclaim that I have tasted his goodness in the land.
I want to encourage someone who is in a seemingly helpless situation today. I want to tell you that God is able to turn it around if you will let him. You need to hand over that situation to God. By doing this you will be surrendering your will and asking that his will be done concerning the situation. God loves to do the impossible for us and he will do it for you.
Take heart friend. Take it to the Lord in prayer. He has asked that we take all our burdens to him in prayer. He delights in doing good to his people. He alone understands our pain, our hurt. It is within his power to make it right for us. Purpose to take it all to him for he will make it all good in his time.
