For our present trouble, which is only for a short time, is working out for us a much greater weight of glory; (2 Corinthians 4:17)

Some assume that if you are Christians you will never get sick, never suffer loss, and never have disappointment, rejection and other hardships. The scriptures never promise the Christian a charmed life, but promise that God will see him through, and will cause all things to work together for his ultimate good. Friend do not focus only on what’s going on in your life today. You only need to remember that God is working it out, and you are going to be just fine. Deal with the present. This is just for now. It will not last. Circumstances change. Hardships of today will be gone soon enough. Pain will ease but what is awaiting us is eternal. You have to be able to look beyond your current pressing hardship, you need to get pass the hurting and trust God. God work what some call impossible miracles for people before us, and He can and will work miracles in your life today.

The Bible is full of God's promises, but unlike the promises that we make, God's promises are true and He fulfills every one. Abraham believed God's promise that he would be the father of many nations. He did not waver through unbelief but was made strong as he believed in the promise of God, because he knew the one who promised it was able to perform it. You have to rest assured that God is still able to perform miracles. He is able to hear and answer your prayers. God gives us grace every time we pray. God is able to answer your prayer, and if you are born of God, He will most certainly answer it. Contrary to popular belief, God does not only answer prayers about our great needs. He gets involved in our minor troubles as well. He is a loving and concerned Father. He cares about everything about us. You can trust God and go to God with all our complications.

Jesus Himself lived in daily communion with the Father, He went to Him all the time so that He could say to His Father and our Father, "I knew that you hear me always" (John 11:42). And all the teaching of Jesus about prayer shows that we too can have communion with God. Friend, the normal Christian life is a life of regular, daily answer to prayer. It is perfectly normal for an obedient child to ask God for things in prayers and get it, get all he wants. "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" (Matt. 7:11). Trust God, He will not fail you. Dare to be a Daniel. Dare to be Abraham. Dare to be the first in your family to blindly follow God. Read your Bible because the more you read, the more you will sense how deeply God cherishes you, and how desperately He wants to answer your prayers. So learn more about God each day. Grow closer to the glorious God who treasures you beyond your wildest dreams. You can trust Him. Focus on Him. Ask the Holy Spirit for help and He will. You are not alone.

Praise the Lord!
