I Am Determined
I am determined to find God in every situation. Because I love Him, everything I go through is ultimately for my good and for His glory. My difficult moments do not catch Him by surprise. Each one of them has been carefully planned and tailor made just for me. God knows what will produce the best results in me.
When I face tough times and hard trials, I must realize that before the trial came God approved it. God only allows me to go through things that I am already equipped for. If I find myself in a test that I cannot pass, that test is not sent from God. God always prepares me before He tests me.
My faith is shallow right now even though I'm trying to go deeper. But what I love about faith is that I only need one drop of it. That one drop is enough to move every mountain out my way. Little becomes much when I place it in God's hands. I'm placing my drop of faith in my Father's hand today, and I will stand in expectation and watch Him deliver. How can I not love a God like that? How can I not serve a God like that? How can I not trust a God like that?“
God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are His offspring'.
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
