Isaiah 58:9-Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, “here I am”.
“Living our lives with certain things unresolved is what faith is all about. I believe that many things happen that we simply can’t explain. When we look back after many years, we still have little understanding of what went on. But we have the knowledge and assurance that Jesus was there with us through every moment, walking by our side, guiding our footsteps. We never needed to fear the questions, because Jesus was answer enough.
Some of the greatest words Paul ever wrote start with questions: Can anything separate us from the love Christ has for us? Can troubles or problems or sufferings? If we have no food or clothes, if we are in danger, or even if death comes, can any of these things separate us from Christ’s love?
Paul’s answer is that nothing–absolutely nothing–in this entire world can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Here is where we must start. Even in the darkest night, the most blinding pain, the most maddening frustration-when nothing makes sense anymore-we keep going because He alone is worth it all.
For years, I drank deeply of the false believe that if I just had enough faith everything would go my way. I thought I had God in a box. I do this for God and He does that for me. But it’s not true, and so many lives are caught and wrecked in the wake of this teaching.
“What did I do wrong?” we cry. Heaven cries back, “Everything, but I love you anyway. Always have, always will.”
Holding on is hard-it can seem impossible-but it is worth it because Jesus is worth it. No matter what happens, Jesus is enough!” by Sheila Walsh “Jesus Is Enough”
