Expecting your relationship with God to be vibrant and strong during momentous times is like expecting your marriage to be full of fireworks and bliss without working on it or spending time with your spouse. It may sound good but it just doesn’t work that way.
God always follows the law of the harvest. You reap what you sow – both in your marriage and in your relationship with him.
In order to trust God, you have to know Him. In order to know Him, He must be more than a casual acquaintance.
To know God is a simple concept but one that is not always easy to accomplish. I have found that it requires prayer and turning to Him for guidance daily. I have also found that utilizing God’s guidance on a daily basis has placed me in a position of hope and enabled me to successfully use, know and understand His guidance whether the difficulty is big or small. In a way that words can’t explain, I find that my life is easier to handle, I am strengthened, and my ability to see life as it really is is enhanced.
I hope that you will choose the blessing of knowing God for your life!
Today, I have a story about a man who knew God. I hope you will enjoy!
A man just got married and was returning home with his wife. They were crossing a lake in a boat, when suddenly a great storm arose. The man was a warrior, but the woman became very much afraid because it seemed almost hopeless:
The boat was small and the storm was really huge, and any moment they were going to be drowned. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening.
The woman was trembling and she said, “Are you not afraid ?”. This may be our last moment of life! It doesn’t seem that we will be able to reach the other shore. Only some miracle can save us; otherwise death is certain. Are you not afraid? Are you mad or something? Are you a stone or something?
The man laughed and took the sword out of its sheath. The woman was even more puzzled: What he was doing? Then he brought the naked sword close to the woman’s neck, so close that just a small gap was there, it was almost touching her neck.
He said,” Are you afraid ?”
She started to laugh and said,” Why should I be afraid ?,If the sword is in your hands, why I should be afraid? I know you love me.
” He put the sword back and said, This is my answer”. I know God Loves me, and the storm is in His hands
SO WHATSOEVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS GOING TO BE GOOD. If we survive, good; if we don’t survive, good ,because everything is in His hands and He cannot do anything wrong.
