Yesterday @ bible study we had a guest speaker, Pastor Charles Jenkins from Chicago (he sings the song “My God is Awesome…Awesome) yeah that song…anyways…
At the end of his message he said that when we go through, instead of complaining and whining about it we should let if fuel us and we should ask ourselves, “what is it that God is wanting to be for us in this situation?”
There is a plan and a purpose for everything but we must have a Heavenly perspective or we will misdiagnose it every time.
You are single…”What is God trying to be for you in this situation?”…maybe He desires to show you how you can have TOTAL completeness in Him and not in a man/woman!
“For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; he is called the God of the whole earth.” – Isaiah 54:5
You are currently unemployed… “What is God trying to be for you in this situation?”…maybe He wants to show you that He is Jehovah Jireh (your provider).
“And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”- Genesis 22:14
You are dealing with rejection and neglect from those you thought were trustable people… “What is God trying to be for you in this situation?”… maybe He wants to show you that He will never change and that His friendship will always stand forever.
“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.” – John 15:15
Instead of looking at your situation in a negative and defeating way…just ask yourself… “What is God trying to be for me in this situation?”
He is I AM which means whatever you need..He is!! Haha I just love that! So, what is I Am trying to be for you? (Sounds like broken grammar doesn’t it, lol)
Remember, there is purpose for your pain and God can take anything and turn it for your good!!
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. ” – Romans 8:28
That will definitely give you a Heaven’s perspective!
