Oftentimes, when we feel like nothing is working out in our favor, and life is at its hardest, something amazing is actually going on in the background.
God seems to love using trying circumstances to test our resolve and our faith.
Chances are, you’ve faced something lately that you didn’t know how to handle. You wondered how you would overcome the problem or find the solution. Maybe things even started to work out…but then, a brick wall appears and progress comes to a screeching halt.
I can’t count how many times this has happened to me over the years.
But I want to encourage you. The secret I’ve come to realize time after time, is that God never really stopped working in the middle of the mess or the process. When the pressure is on and movement in your life seems to freeze, it can feel like God has left you. But God never leaves us.
Just as you cannot see the wind…God is there. He is moving, flowing, and pushing the environment around you in ways you can’t fully understand.
God is in the background of your immoveable situation, right now, and he is manipulating and leveraging the difficulty to work in your favor.
The Bible says…
2 Corinthians 5:7 ESV – for we walk by faith, not by sight.
The common denominator we face, is that we can’t SEE God moving. You can’t see where he is or what he is doing. It’s like watching one of those television shows where they work in the background, without your knowledge, then there is a big reveal.
God is just like that. He is working in your heart and in your life…then, when you least expect it…there is a big reveal.
Here’s some encouragement…don’t give up in the middle of the process.
The Bible also says…
Romans 8:28 ESV – And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, this verse is talking about YOU.
Everything you’re facing at the moment is something that God is currently working on and working OUT in the background of your life; and the awesome thing is that he is working it all out for your GOOD.
There really is a “big reveal” coming! So don’t let the stillness of unanswered prayers throw your faith for a loop.
God has been there the whole time, and he isn’t about to leave you now.
