Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. — 1 Chronicles 29:11
This life we are living is a life full of challenges. Sometimes there are struggles and troubles. And our hope rises inside us. We keep on believing that God will eventually do something great every time we come to Him and ask Him in prayer to present our requests. But when what we are praying for, what we are expecting from God were not answered, we start thinking that God cannot do all things.
We people question a lot. We ask, “If God is all-powerful, why didn’t He save a friend who died of cancer? If God is all-knowing, why didn’t He give me what I needed most at that specific time? If God is everywhere, why didn’t I feel Him when I needed comfort the most?” We start doubting Him when our expectations are not met. Here’s a question for us, “If you love God, are you even giving effort to know Him more?”
God is not a genie who grants wishes. God is not someone we can command. He’s neither a God who needs to impress people. He is the only living God who deserves our whole lives. Everything we do, even if we also come to Him to pray, we seek Him first before seeking things to meet our expectations. And seeking Him also entails knowing Him more. If we want more of Him, we would connect with Him daily through the Bible and prayer.
All things are possible with God. God is omniscient and He knows what’s best for us even if it’s against what we think is best. God is omnipotent and is the only One who could change lives and give the fullness of joy. God is omnipresent even if we don’t feel Him, he keeps on watching us.
“Even if the healing doesn’t come, when life falls apart and dreams are still undone, You are God, You are good, forever faithful One, even if the healing doesn’t come.” — Kutless
