11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?(Matthew 6: 25-26)
Faith brings God on the scene. Everything happens for a reason. Even if our life had been a mess for all the wrong choices we had made if we have made God can restore our ruined life.
We may have lost a lot of things, cried a river for the pain of losing these but be aware that when God closes a door, He opens a window. He must have a better plan and certainly His plan is always perfect. For instance, Joseph who was sold by his own siblings. What he had encountered in life is one of the worst experience—living away from your family, residing in a foreign land and all. Yet God had allowed that thing because He has a purpose which the readers of the story will appreciate at the later part of Joseph’s life.
There are times when we suffer too much we ask God what is taking Him too long for His rescue to come upon us. Tough life is putting our faith into a test. However it is not an option for us to lose faith. During our lowest points, the more should we draw closer to God and pray. Sure thing, He hears whatever we utter. Always seek His kingdom and we will find Him.
If we continually seek Him and trust our life to Him, later on we will realize how important our past experiences were just like what happened to Joseph. Just keep the faith.
