Do As I Do
There are a lot of ups and downs in a life, and the Christian life is no different. I find a lot of young people have a serious misconception about this simple fact. They somehow think God is powerful and loves them when things are going well, and somehow He’s either no longer powerful, or doesn’t love them anymore when things seem to be going poorly. If you’re going through some rough times then maybe it’s a time of discipline, or maybe it’s a time of testing and growth, but two things for sure: God is still God, and God is still love! If you are, you can be sure God still loves you, too! Are my children (my own flesh and blood children) any less “Kilby” when I’m disciplining them? Are they any less loved? Certainly not! And you’re no less Christian during the tough times in life. Soooo… when God is doing amazing things and everything seems to be going well, write it down, then go back and read what God did for you when times get tougher–The same God is still ultimately in charge of everything! This too shall pass!
“The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. The LORD has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.” Psalm 118:16-18
