When my life fell apart I questioned everything especially my God . May be you like me that is questioning everything about your life saying if God would allow everything I had worked so hard for to go so terribly wrong, if God would allowed the one i loved very much suffered from the hand of sickness and disease, if God would allow people to betray my trust this much, if God would allowed the trouble i am going through, if God permitted all the calamity happenning in the world. I had many things troubling my mind that need answer—and I wanted to hear from Him!
What I found when I had the courage to come to God with my trouble heart, was that He could handle my toughest questions and that I wasn’t the first to ask them.
3 Question I asked When Everything Falls Apart and the answer i got.
1. Does God really have my best interest at heart? YES!!! How?
There is nowhere it is written that the journey of life is going to easy or smooth, He only promised to be with us and give us a wonderful ending. In Isaiah 43:2 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.
God knew there would be times where we would be so enveloped in fear and uncertainty that we would make us to doubt if HE cares. That circumstances so difficult would often cause us to question whether God really loves us or can be trusted moving forward such times remember His promised.
The Israelites were no exception. They were forced to endure desperate circumstances when there seemed to be no end in sight.
But God gave them reason to trust Him saying, Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
We can expect to not always make sense of what God is doing in the present, but can hold onto the promise that God has great things in store for our future: plans to prosper us and give us purpose. Plans to give us hope when we’re on the verge of giving up, a future despite our darkest days and to give strength when weary.
2. Is the best really yet to come? Yes of cause. How?
Sometimes when we look around it seems there is nothing pointing to great future and then we struggle to believe the best is ahead, it’s often a result of crippling pain and loss in the wake of our past. In Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
that is it is our thought or view of the circumstance now that determine the great future… only GOD determine it.
He permitted some circumstance in our so that when great future come, we can accolades the glory to HIM alone. 1 Corinthians 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
In the case of Job who had lost everything: His fortune, his health, his home, and every one of his children.
In his pain, Job often wondered if God was listening, or worse, if God even cared. He was so overwhelmed with grief he begged God to kill him for fear there was nothing more to live for. But Job also did something surprising: he kept is faith in God despite all the trouble in his life.
God took note of Job’s faith in spite of his suffering and “the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before…the Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part” ( ).
“ The pain of our past is an opportunity to see God’s power. ”
Job’s story reminds us that our own story isn’t over yet. The pain of our past is an opportunity to see God’s power. No matter what you have lost, God is working—in this very moment—to restore your life and heart immeasurably more than you ever thought possible. Remember in 1 Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are..
He want use your circumstance to shame the wise and mighty.
So this is not the end of your story; it is only an intermission. The best is yet to come! dont give up.
3. Does God really love me unconditionally? Yes! How?
In John 3:16 explain to us For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God is not delight in our destruction that why He sacrifice His son for redemption. He love us more than the way we love ourselves, we are His image for glory so don’t doubt His love for us again.
Maybe somewhere along the road we took a wrong turn, slipped up and made some bad choices that have us certain we are the exception to God’s love.
Remember the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-22 ……………………. verse17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
The father showed unconditional love to his prodigal son the same way God’s love toward you is unconditionally.
What of King David certainly believed the same when he rebelled against God, got a married woman pregnant and then murdered her husband to keep his secret from coming out.
But King David goes on to describe the unconditional love, He found in spite of the things he had done saying, “[God] reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters…He rescued me because He delighted in me.
God’s not done with you; He delights in you. So come to Him just as you are and confess how you may have gotten off track, He ready to accept you, clean you up just has He did for the prodigal son.
