TRUST in GOD'S LOVE


Our little nativity set (Precious Moments)

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35

A friend of mine was going through a series of disappointments and setbacks. It seemed one thing after another went wrong in her life. She said to me, “I am questioning God. Why is He letting these things happen to me? Doesn’t He care about me?”
            Her reaction is understandable. In the midst of personal setbacks, tragedies, and hardships, many people blame God for the situation and question His love. Yet, we cannot ascribe the distress and disasters of this fallen world to a lack of God’s love. We live in a time of His permissive will, and the foolishness of man abounds in this sin-sick world. No one is spared misfortune.
But take heart. God’s love has already been proven for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16). God’s love was revealed through His mercy and grace when He made a way for us as sinners, reconciling man to Himself through Jesus Christ. God also gave the precious gift of the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter. As followers of Christ, we can put our faith in the love of God and hope in the promise of eternal life when we shall live and reign with Him forever. So today, trust in His love and goodness, no matter the circumstances.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37
When facing difficult circumstances, meditate on how God demonstrated His love to the world and to you personally in countless ways. Remember that your life is in His hands and God’s purposes will be fulfilled.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
