anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. James 5:13 NASU
Through the seasons of life, it is always difficult to walk through a painful time. Spurgeon said " The God of prayer is the ear of God." Attaining the ear of God can only be reached by patient and persistent waiting upon Him. By pouring out our hearts and permitting God to speak to us, we come to know God better. And as we know Him more, we will spend more time in His presence.
During times of testing, God reflects His faithfulness. A few years ago I read this -
"Will you trust Me? Will you trust the God you know? If you will trust the God you know, you will be at peace."
For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, He
would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He
predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also
justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What
then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against
us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us
all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will
bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who
is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who
was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or
distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED." But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither
death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present,
nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other
created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:29-39 NASU
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
