When It Doesn't Seem Like Anything Is Happening

"Jesus said to them, 'My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working."'
John 5:17 (New International Version)

Hey girlfriends,

I just wanted to remind all of us that even when it doesn't seem like anything is happening, our God is busying Himself with our every step. There have been and will continue to be seasons in our lives in which it seems that nothing is changing. We keep praying the same prayers over and over again and heaven seems silent. The accuser is whispering in our ears to give up, that even God Himself has abandoned us.

We need to ask ourselves where our faith is based? If it is based on emotions, heaven help us! This woman can be one walking hormone, completely deceived into thinking that what I feel is real. Emotions go up and down, but our God is a strong tower and when we run to Him, we are safe. No matter what circumstances are shouting at us.

Our God is on the throne, fully capable of fulfilling His promises to us when the sun is shining and the world is right as when the skies turn gray and gloomy. Someone needs to hear today, besides me, to hold on! If we are wrestling with our God over something that He has promised us in His Word that has not yet come to fruition, we must believe that He is going to come through. He never lies to us--ever. We can only see just a tiny portion of what He is doing. He sees the whole thing. He is always at work even when He seems to be so far away.

Take heart, sweet sister. Our God is on the throne working out every detail so that when we get the answer, our heart will be able to joyfully say, "Jesus, You did ALL things well!"
