Jeremiah 32:27 (KJV)

27) Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Have you ever faced a situation that seemed impossible to understand?

Have you ever questioned the purpose of your trials?

Have you ever asked the question: "Lord, why ME"?

Have you ever said " I don't know what to do or how to do it. Lord, I need you to HELP me!"?

Luke 12:12 (KJV) promises....

12) For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

Some of us have probably asked these questions countless times. We tend to jump into situations and then find ourselves in over our heads. IN TOO DEEP!

Have you ever taken a test where you went in thinking to yourself that you will ace the test, then, when you get the test and look over the questions, you say to yourself "this isn't what I studied"?

Life is pretty much the same way sometimes. Tests (trials) come and we go in thinking "we" have it all under control until we realize we're unprepared and didn't study the right material.

These tests are to prove that GOD is NEEDED in your life.

Have you ever experienced trials so difficult in your life to the point where there was only ONE thing you could do to get through the situation? I'm talking where situations have you so "low" that you only have ONE way to look, and that's UP! I know somebody knows exactly where I'm coming from. Those times where you couldn't count on anyone to assist you or even give you an encouraging word. No family, friends or associates. Just out there feeling like you're in sinking sand.

Psalm 121:1-3 (KJV)

1) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2) My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. 3)He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

It is at these times that God reminds us that it is him that keeps us. It is him that protects us. It is him that guides us. It is him that makes things possible for us. It is him that we should put our trust in. It is him that we should depend on.
Trials come to make us strong and are usually tests of our faith in God.Tests are the sometimes not so subtle reminders from the Most High....." YOU NEED HIM" in ALL that you do!

Thought for today: Sometimes, man learns wisdom through suffering. Let your experiences be lessons and learn from them whether they be good, bad or indifferent.

Be Blessed and remember to BE a blessing.

EW Ministries~ that is a GREAT lesson. We tend to NOT rest in GOD. We want to "fix" everything ourselves, when sometimes, we're trying to fix what isn't broken in the first place. God removes things from us which we tend to want to hold on to but SHOULD let go and other times, we let go of that which we should hold on to. That's a direct result of not resting in God's grace and mercy and not seeking God before making hasty decisions.

Yes to many of those questions. I have questioned God so many times. I have learned to just Rest in him. My husband is the founder of Rest Of God Ministries and for as long as I can remember since I've known him he has taught me and many others to learn to rest in the finished work of Christ and to understand that the work is finished. Also, that he who has begun a good work in us will finish it until the day of redemption.
