You thought wrong

“Lord, I thought you said you’d never leave me nor forsake me,” yet you’ve left me to face this battle on my own.

“Lord, I thought you said that by your stripes we are healed,” yet my dad suffered and died from COVID.

“Lord, I thought you said that no weapon formed against me shall prosper,” but I keep getting attacked.

“Lord, I thought you said that the last shall be first and the first shall be last,” but I’m still in last position.

“Lord, I thought you said that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” yet I feel weak and defeated.

These are some of my expressions, which were clearly spoken out of frustration, and I know a lot of times you’re completely frustrated with God. You’re constantly reminded of others success and happiness, and see them as winning, while you’re fighting relentlessly not to lose. You do everything you know how to move up, but when you look down, you quickly see you’re not too far from the bottom. It pains you, because you thought you’d be further along by now. You thought that things would get better for yourself. You thought it wouldn’t take this long to reach success. You thought that God would help you, when you need Him too. You thought that nothing bad would ever happen to you. You thought that God would always be there for you no matter what, but it appears He’s gone afar. However, if there is anything you’ve ever thought God can do, and because it hasn’t happened, you believe that it won’t, I want to tell you that you thought wrong!

Think again, because God can do anything but fail!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
