Pray for me, I need a job.
I’ve had 5 interviews a week and still can’t get hired.
My child is out of control, his anger is life controlling for everyone!
My daughter misses her real dad, and in her frustration she lashes out at everyone.
Please stop asking me to be involved. I’m too busy.
I just had to spend $500 to fix my car.
I took the kids to school this morning and heard the story on the radio about the church shooting in Lakeland. Then I came home and spent the day in bed recuperating from a too busy weekend that my body rebelled to. By Noon, we spent $200 fixing our A/C, and by the evening, my grandfather had broken his hip.
It seems that now more than ever we need to be strong in our faith. Finances, family, churches, health, everything possibly imaginable is being attacked. This is the time that we, as believers in Christ, are to stand firm in the truth of who God is:
Faithful. Provider. Healer. Restorer. Father. Savior. Rock. Redeemer.
Not to mention:
Holy. Sovereign. Loving.
Are we living that way? Do we live not just as we believe these things about some lofty deity but as we intimately know this person we call God?
It is in the roots of our faith that we find the strength to handle the disappoints and uncertainty of our futures. The only way a tree can stand so firmly in the storm is because of the depths and strength of its roots. As is for us.
If you are struggling, depend on your roots to keep you strong and steady in the difficulties. If your life isn’t weathering a storm, spend some time deepening your roots, because the storms will come.
Now is the time to believe in a Big God to do Greatness for His Glory. Are you believing?
