It is an amazing thing how when you feel as though you are in a dark room… so dark that you cannot see your hand in front of your face, when you thought there was a door but as soon as you checked the door was nowhere to be found. Then, all of a sudden, God sends a breeze to direct you in the right location and you find the door.
This was how I was feeling recently while searching for answers regarding all that is going on around us. There were times when I just felt so discouraged and lost. This was only because I was looking at the circumstances all around. I knew that I needed to step outside of those surroundings to get a biblical perspective. I knew the Truth and I just needed to find the door so that I could open it and see the light of sound doctrine for what I was searching.
Sometimes, when we are wanting an answer to a problem or are confused about something we have learned… we cry out to God to reveal it to us. He rarely does on the spot. He desires us to search diligently in His Word and pray fervently, seeking His face for the answers. At times, He waits until we plead with all that we have and then wait in stillness with the understanding the He is God and He has it all under His control no matter what the life around us may say.
At times, we need to continually repeat the same steps over and over again for a long period of time before we get the answer. All the while, knowing that the answer may or may not be what we want to hear but allowing God to be who He is and knowing that His will is for our overall good and His ultimate glory.
A heart that desires to give God glory through all things that may come and is willing to give of its self completely, even to death if He wills, is a heart worthy of Christ and the purity to be able to stand in His presence… covered in His love, blameless because of faith in Him. This is the love He desires and the price of life that we pay to gain life eternal with Christ Jesus.
