The Lord Has Confidence In You
Have you ever wondered why you existed?
Have you ever wondered why you are experiencing a particular situation in your life?
Maybe you are battling with sickness in your body or you have a child that has poor health.
Whatever the situation that you are presently going through, you may ask yourself over and over again, “Why me?”
I remember asking the Lord this question twenty years ago when I just gave birth to an infant who had a terrible congenital heart disease.
Nobody in my family had heart disease and all of my siblings had healthy children.
So, of course I could not understand why I was the only one who had a sick child.
Do you know what the Lord said to me?
He told me that He trusted me to raise and take care of His child.
I have been doing that for over twenty years.
Thank you, Lord, for having confidence in me. I cannot afford to let you down!
I shared my story to let you know that the reason why you are going through a tough period in your life is because the Lord has confidence in you that you will endure and come out victorious.
As a matter of fact, the reason why you exist in the land of the living is because God knows that you are strong.
You may not think that you are not strong enough to endure, but that is okay.
It is in your weakness that God’s strength prevails in you.
Don’t give up because like the three Hebrew boys, you will come out of the fire 🔥 without a singe or the smell of smoke (Daniel 3).
And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. (Daniel 3:27)
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
