Recently, I read a couple of comments from believers who made the decision to walk away from serving God. The Journey of pain and suffering was too much and too long. ” I’m over it” and “I’ve waited long enough” were the emotionally charged comments left in response to a posted scripture of Waiting on the Lord. Psalm 27:14. For those who are unaware that suffering and persecution is the life of a disciple are not studying the Scriptures. Remember, only the Apostle John died a natural death.
“O my people, what have I done to you? What have I done to make you tired of me? Answer me! Micah 6:3 NLT was the question that God asked the Israelites who enjoyed paganism.
Yes, the Believer’s life is a rugged journey. Sanctification is the lifelong spiritual process of being transformed to become like Christ. In Proverbs 13:15, the scripture reads, “Good understanding gains favor, but the way of the transgressors is hard.” So, an individual intentionally chooses to live without God, has a hard life on this Earth as opposed to going through hardships with the help of an entire Spiritual Team, which includes guardian and messenger angels to assist us through the fiery trials?
I tried life without God and the comment, “I’m over it,” is truly applicable to living a godless, non-productive lifestyle. Realistically, when I am feeling weary and worn out, I start praying a lot and include God’s promises from the scriptures in my prayer. By the time I stop praying, I’m feeling a 100% better.
Serving God reaps many rewards. Spiritual back up is available 24/7. And we know that, and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Prayer: God, we thank you for the Sabbath, 24 hours of communion with you. We ask for spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical healing. We thank you for the gift of your son, Jesus Christ who suffered for us, that we may have eternal life. Lord help us to never forget what you did for us on the cross. We ask this prayer in the Worthy name of Jesus. Amen. © 2021 Sonya Johnson, Faithful Fishers and Woman, You Are Loved by God Ministries
