GOD'S LOVINGLY CONCERNEDIf faith was never tried, we would never see the impossible. Right now, it may feel as life is heading towards the edge of impossible.  All of the turns seem to be going to a dead end, there is no exit in sight.  Bills are piling up, children need school items, and the car needs attention.  Yet, even though you have tried to fix the problems, the problems keep growing.  Yet, inside our heart, our faith seems so small.  God’s not looking for great faith; He is looking for simple faith-trust in Him.  Faith is trusting God’s heart even when you can’t see His hand working.

As the problems mount, we start to question if God cares or is concerned about the burdens we carry.  May I challenge you today to look out the window, take a walk around the block, or sit in God’s presence without saying a word.  Sometimes perspective is all we need to see a different point of view, or take a breath, or rest in knowing God’s love never changes.  God hasn’t forgotten you!  When you look out the window, the sunlight kisses your face to reveal God’s faithfulness.  When you smell a beautiful flower, the aroma shows God’s care in the delicate details.  When the moonlight shines during the night, it shows God’s still present even through the darkest night.

God’s not alarmed about your problems or unconcerned, He is attentive to your cry. “So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them.” (Exodus 2:25) How does God look at your situation?  He looks we concern, not only a concern to observe but to act in their behalf.  God’s going to miraculous show Himself to you during this trial.  Don’t lose hope!  Although the children of Israel were in bondage, they still grew.  God still blessed them during the bondage but He delivered them.  In life we are starting a trial, in the middle of one, or just got out of one!  Yet, the beautiful truth God’s present through each step!  He is a victorious warrior!  He has never lost a battle or sought wisdom from anyone else, He is capable to handle this.

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
