How do you approach God? Do you come to Him like a magical genie in the sky ready to meet your every need? Do you command and wait for Him to fulfil your wishes? Many people approach God only when they are in need. When they hit desperation, you find their fervency increase but is that how it’s supposed to be.
During Covid I heard many people make many requests from God, and when God didn’t come through, faith was shattered, in fact I was one such person who didn’t receive exact answers to my prayers. When God does not answer in the way you expect, your faith can certainly take a beating but how to do you stop your faith from being lost?
Firstly, we must understand who God is. God is not a servant to obey our every beck and call. Rather He is a Master whom we serve. We must remember that like and Jesus himself, we are all servants of the Most High God.
For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me.
If God chooses not to do what we ask does that mean He has abandoned us? Not at all. In fact, His Word says that He is working it all together for our GOOD. That leads me to my second point, God is always GOOD. When we were young every speaker used to say, “God is Good” and the church would say “ALL THE TIME”. We must understand that Gods nature is always good. He cannot be bad. Sin and the nature of man open the door to some difficult moments but God does not cause these moments.
No Matter what you are facing, God is still Good and still in love with you.
