God knows, God cares...

My encouragement to you this week is God cares about your situation. Even when it seems like nothing is coming your way, God always knows how to miraculously provide. Things change when you invest in God. Invest your whole trust in Him to care about you. God never comes up short!
Many of us have wondered or currently are wondering where is God? God why have you forgotten about me? God why won't you listen to me? What did I do to you to deserve what I'm getting? All type of thoughts in your head. We essentially believe that God has stopped caring about us. Friends and Saints, God has not forgotten you for one minute despite whatever you are going through currently or have been through.
For those of us who have come out the storm, you know if it wasn't for God you probably would have given up a long time ago. You would have been given over to your depression, your circumstance, the prison of your mind, etc. But God had no plans for you to be taken over. He stuck with you. He provided for you. He made a way out of no way for you. Everything  looked bleak. It was one disappointment after another but in the end, you walked away a winner. Sometimes it may seem there is no way out. You have no clue how to fix this. You are all alone. Stop! If you read the Bible, God clearly says Isaiah 41:17 HCSB The poor and the needy seek water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. I, the Lord , will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. He won't let us down. He won't forget us. God cares.
Things change when you invest in God. God can send a lot of help to you if you reach out to God. It can come in the form of resources, a friend, family, counsel, a church home, etc. But pouring into God and into the Word is very important. You have to invest in God. If you believe in God, you can't take God in doses. He does this for me but can't or won't do this other thing for me. He won't let me life turn around but He did this for me. No! Have real expectations of God and you treat Him like you do. Because God has real expectations of us and expects us to get it done. He is all-powerful. He steps in on time. You must invest in His saving power. That comes through you actions. You can profess it but what do the actions say? Do they speak to a Christian? Do they say I believe in God thoroughly? Take that all into perspective. Keep all that in mind. Are you trying to be helped by doing your part? Or are you waiting for God to be a genie? No. We have to work for it through investment of a relationship with God. We have to do our parts in our redemption.
God will not come up short. He does exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything we can ask of Him. He has promises that He won't break. Will never break. Trust in those promises. Please trust in those promises. Seek God to show up in your life and ask Him what to do. Seeking God is so key. Jeremiah 29:13 HCSB, You will seek Me  and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. With your whole heart. Not begging God but actually looking for God. God will show up and God will have a solution to your problems. He will change it around. Invest in God...Be Blessed...
