There are good moments in life. There are bad moments in life. Yet you question. Where are You, God?
Where are you when I expect You to be there? Do You hear my prayers? Are you listening?
Our expectations for God limits what we see with our own eyes. We are looking for Him in all the wrong places.
Because if you are looking only for what you want, you won't find what you can't see.
And if you are only looking only for what you want, you won't find what you need.
You can get lost in your own wilderness; the mess that consumes your every thought, all your strength, and strategic actions.
If you rely on what you think, you will miss God.
The appearance of God being silence is our cue to pay close attention. God is always working on your behalf.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." ~ Isaiah 41:10
The K.I.S.S. ~ Where are You, God?
REFLECTION: If you could audibly hear Him, what would you want Him to say?
Be cautious in putting words into God's mouth.
Instead of focusing on what you would want to hear, ask God, "What are You telling me?"
Don't let fear overcome God's promises to you.
You might be in a situation where you feel like God has abandoned you or left you to hang out with the wolves.
This feeling is real! But it must not consume your perspectives of God.
Expect the unexpected.
When you put boundaries on God, you are limiting the blessings you see from Him.
The wilderness can be lonely and scary; a never-ending journey with no resolve.
Be strong and courageous. God never leaves you nor forsakes you. He is with you always. (Deut 31:6)
Now you must be real and honest. Are you debating today whether God is with you?
Challenge: This week be watchful. Look for God not just where you want to see Him, but where He is moving on your behalf."It's not just where the light is. It may be in the dark."
