Draw Near to God In Suffering, Every Day in His Presence
Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know. — Jeremiah 33:3
At some point, we all wrestle with why God allows us to suffer and we wonder if it’s because He no longer loves us. But the truth is, some of the greatest lessons we ever learn come as the result of hardship. During those painful times, if we’ll cling to the Father, we’ll gain tremendous insight into His heart and mind.
My brothers and sisters, when you experience trials, realize that God doesn’t want to hurt you (Lamentations 3:32-33). Rather, He has great things He wants to teach you — lessons that, unfortunately, can only be learned through sorrow (Hebrews 5:8). So when trouble strikes, be still and ask the Lord to show you what you can learn through the situation.
Your Saviour is here — right now, right beside you. He is waiting for your call to tell Him all about your trials even though He knows about them already. Your loving heavenly Father is beckoning to you, asking you to draw near and learn His ways. So call on Him. He will answer you. And He will teach you great and mighty things that you need to know.
Father, what would You have me learn through my heartache? Teach me, my Lord — I am listening. Show me Thy ways and direct my pathways. Amen.
In His presence… call to Him and expect Him to answer. His ears are not heavy that He cannot hear you nor His hands short that He cannot save,
Your servant and brother,
