Recently I have been in several situations that I called on God immediately and He was there. There was not time for me to get on my knees in a prayer closet and go into a long dialogue prayer. I needed to reach MY Heavenly Father by simply calling His name. It was a simple, “God, Help!” Have you ever been in one of those situations?
As time would go on, I would pray over and over, “God, please we need a miracle!” This was not a miracle for me personally but for my immediate family. He always hears my cries and He always answers.
God would answer my prayer with exactly what I needed at that exact moment. I wanted a complete and immediate miracle but God said, I will sustain you through it all, ” My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…” 2 Corinthians 12:9 That wasn’t what I wanted to hear but that was the answer.
I knew the same God that turned the water into wine and parted the Red Sea was the same God I was calling upon. I had NO doubt that He was capable of performing a miracle. Had I not been in conversation with Him on a daily basis I wonder how much catching up I would have had to do before asking for a miracle?
Right in the middle of my deepest heartache, in the darkness of the pain my heart felt, God’s presence has always been steadfast and immovable. Through my struggles, He continually comforts me with His Word. When I cry out in my darkness, not knowing what the future may hold, He will always be with me and our family regardless of what we may face.
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”Isa. 43:2
I will always pray for complete healing. I know that God will so tenderly hold us and comfort us while we face the trials together. At the same time, in those special moments of tenderness He still continued to carry on and still be God to the rest of the world!
- Thank you Jesus for loving me so!
