Living Life God's Way 5/5/2009; Be Persistent
- +Living Life God's Way+
The golden rule for understanding in spiritual matters
is not intellect, but obedience.
So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will
knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives,
and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
There have been times in my life when God seems very distant, a;most as
if He is unconcerned with the issues I am facing. Of course, it is not
true because His word tells me different from what I am feeling. It is
during these seemingly, lonely times that I must immerse myself in His
word, reminding myself of His promises, and remembering His faithfulness
to me in the past. God is not ignoring me, nor is He being unkind. He is
taking me in a direction I may not understand now and as I persist in
knocking, the door will eventually open the yes of my understanding and
I will clearly see the purpose in what He has permitted.
Prayer - I have complete confidence in You Lord, I trust in Your word,
and I know You are faithful. I will continue to hold on to what I know
is true, that You love me unconditionally, and all that concerns me,
does concern You. I will persist in knocking, through Your silence,
until the door is opened and I can see and understand the reasons for
the way in which You have taken me. Amen
