“God uses times of waiting to draw us closer to him, to ourselves, and to our loved ones. So many people have told me that in times of uncertainty they have drawn closer to not only God but also their spouses and others near them. In the battle for our attention, God often has to let us go through a period of adversity so that we might attune our ears to his voice and discern his direction.”
This is an excerpt from a devotional that I am doing in the Bible App Called,” Know Your Why: Finding and fulfilling your calling”. This part really spoke to me because of what the whole world is going through with this covid-19, it is so sad that something like this has to happen for God to get our attention. I’m NOT saying that God did this in anyway shape of form, I am saying that God allows things to happen and will use the bad for the good of His people. God just wants us to draw closer to Him and trust in Him and yet we have let our every day lives get in the way of having a relationship with God, we put Him on the back burner of our lives and call out to Him when things go bad. We need to walk with God in the good times as well as the bad we need to trust Him and know that He has everything under control. God loves us so much that He wanted a relationship with us and He made a way for us to have that through His Son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross just for us. I am going to reevaluate my life and do what needs to be done to make God first in my life so that everything else falls into place. I pray God’s peace is with you today and everyday.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can guide you in your next steps in your relationship with Jesus.
