When we face a certain situation often we do not know what to pray, how to pray and when to pray. This is a normal thing in the life of believer. It is not a sign of weakness like the world sees it but it is the evidence that we need God’s direction. We don’t know the answer of everything but God knows. Jesus who is at the right hand of God the Father is interceding for us. God loves us and through Christ alone God sees us worthy. For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, simply put Christ is everything to us.
The access to the throne of God to obtain what we need has been granted to us through Christ. God the Father has given Him all authority in heaven and on earth. In Christ God’s power manifests, the wisdom of heaven is revealed and the treasure of His heavenly throne is unfolded.
Christ commands us to abide in Him and to be in constant communion with His Spirit so we could face and overcome every challenging or difficult situation. He communicates with us by His Holy Spirit. We gain assurance and strength in His supremacy by abiding in His word in faith.
There was a time in my life where I couldn’t see where I was going. I felt that all doors seemed to be closed before me and there was no way out for me to come out from such a difficult and complicated situation. One thing I was sure Christ’s love would never depart from me, I was not alone He would never leave me nor forsake me, that is His promise !!
I surrendered myself to God and relied on Him completely. I only knew little about faith but I trusted Him. The Holy Spirit gently guided my way to come out from that situation and I thank Him for that.
When Jesus said to the disciples : “ Do not let your heart be troubled believe in God, believe also in Me “ ( John 14:1). Here Jesus knew that they felt anxious if they had to face the world alone without Him. His word gave them assurance and comfort to their hearts that they would meet Him again and He would come back for them.
Trusting God is a decision to surrender and to submit to His authority and power. We must put our dependence completely in Him and fix our eyes on the Cross. Set our mind only on His heavenly purposes. The bible says “ His judgements are unsearchable and His ways past finding out “ Our mind cannot comprehend them, our thought unable to measure the depth of His riches of wisdom and knowledge. Often the plan that Satan has created to deceive and destroy us (God’s children) God would use it as an opportunity to strengthen our faith if we endure the suffering. He could turn the situation around to benefit us.
We must not let our emotion conquer our soul, we must not allow our feelings dominate our spirit. We should learn diligently to enter Christ’s rest by trusting Him. Those who do this cannot be easily intimidated and troubled by any tough situation that they may experience.
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever. (Psalm 125 :1)
Only by the power and the work of the Holy Spirit in our heart His grace shall lead us to His rest. It shall empower us to trust Him and it shall bring us to the place of peace in the storms of doubt and perplexity.
