It has been nearly 8 months since I have posted on this site. Like many Christians I was going really well for a while proclaiming God’s greatness and faithfulness but when things got tough I stopped.
I guess that is the what the emnemy wanted.
For some reason I got it in my mind that if I was going through difficult times then I must not be in right standing with God. After taking a step back I realize that is not true. In fact the opposite seems to be reality. If you are truly being effective for God then the enemy is not going to leave you alone.
The bible says:
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all. (Psalm 34:19 NKJV)
The Last 8 Months
I think I have had more affections in the last 8 months then I did in the previous 8 months. That is saying a lot since I battled cancer twice during that time. For me the last 8 months have been filled with tens of medical procedures, ER visits, and hospital stays. In fact as I write this, I have been in the hospital for 3 days after a very scary medical emergency that landed me in the ER, which resulted me being admitted into the hospital.
I won’t go into details because that is not whist this post is about. This post is about God’s faithfulness.
See, even though I have been through so many things in the last 8 months God has delivered me out of each and every one of them. He has done that regardless of how much time I have spent in prayer or read my bible. His faithfulness to me has been consistent regardless of my inconsistency to Him.
Seeing His faithfulness it makes me so grateful to have Him in my life.
Yes, I have been through a lot of trials and tribulation in the last 8 months. But in the same time I have seen God do amazing and wonderful things. I look forward to what the next 8 months have to bring!
