Exodus 3:14-15, Deuteronomy 8:18, Hebrews 11:6.
God is anything He says He is (Exodus 6:2-3), and He’s also who we say He is (Matthew 16:15-16). He is ever present (Isaiah 43:2). He can do everything at a time (2 Peter 3:8)…
But, what if God answered all your prayers every time you asked Him, would you perceive those miracles to be BIG or as a mere gift because of your inheritance in Christ?
The fact that God does/has not answered all your prayer requests does not mean He isn’t in existence. As Christians, we should not despair even in tribulation because of the assurance of glory we have in Christ. He reassures us of peace in Him through His word:
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.“
John 16:33 KJV
Tribulation could be a test of faith. In a scenario as such, always remember the Bible passage above. Persecution, trials, and tribulation will arise against God’s word which you believe (Matthew 13:30-21): not mainly due to our obedience, but just solely because of the word. Here, your stand in faith in God and is word is proven.
During trials: be alert and stay strong
Tribulation could also happen as a result of one’s disobediences. In this case, all you need do is to surrender your life to Jesus if you haven’t done so previously. Ask Him for mercy too, and trust that He’ll carry you through that storm you are facing. Seek God diligently in faith to see Him display His power NOW!
MEANING OF “I AM”:
Yahweh – The Lord
The good news however, is that when we look more like Him, we’ll begin to think like Him and when we think more like Him, we’ll look more like Him.
You can begin to declare that because He is, you are.
For example, you may say:
° Because God is my Redeemer, I am redeemed!
° He is my Provider, so I am wealthy!
From today onwards, Speak your reality in Christ and indeed you’ll live as you truly are – more than a conqueror.
In conclusion, knowing who God is to you plays a vital role in ensuring that you remain steadfast in Him even in turbulent times. Now, let’s check, who is God really to you? In what areas of your life has He proven Himself the most in your life?
Please, leave a comment below if you’d love to share what He is to you. Cheers! ✨💜
