Many times we set out on a mission, having everything well thought out, only to encounter defeat or serious setbacks along the way, that leave many of crashing and some of us even lament about how God has failed us. We forget that even when all things fail, God never fails and His word is true. Folks when things don’t go our way, or when our dreams and desires do not go the way we envisaged, as is often the case in this life, we shouldn’t wear the defeatist mentality and begin to cry about as the world does, rather we should hold firm to the word of God.
Remember the scriptures tell us that all things (including what you are facing right now) happen for good to them that love God. As long as we have committed our plans and the outcome to the hands of God, we should trust that everything works out in the right way, and in the most wonderful way with God.
Maybe we are in a situation where we don’t and cannot see any miracle happening. But one thing I know for sure is this; There is never a limit to what God can do – and seeks to do in our lives. We may feel small, weak, or incapacitated; but our God can do all things, because He is the Almighty God. Our circumstances, conditions and obstacles may seem too much for our present strength; but God can. We need not think therefore that this day will be lost, or our plans or desires will have to be abandoned, because as we take our lives and our affairs into the hands of God, and leave it there, we will be clothed with new strength, and not be shaken, just as we are promised in the scripture;
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken.” – Psalms 55:22
