Although my flesh is sick my spirit is very much alive. I take confidence in knowing that I’ll be living after this body has returned to dust. Why else would God be working not only me but my family? In the Old Testament God worked on those he planned to prosper, to those he had a future for, for those he planned to give life to. Do you see God working in your life? Jeremiah 29:11 says: For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Have you taken time to specifically ask God what his plans are for you?
James Chap 1 v5-8 say: If you want to know what God wants you to do, ask him, and he will gladly tell you, for he is always ready to give a bountiful supply of wisdom to all who ask him; he will not resent it. But when you ask him be sure that you really expect him to tell you, for a doubtful mind will be as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind; and every decision you then make will be uncertain, as you first turn this way, and then that. If you do not ask with Faith, don’t expect the Lord to give you any solid answer.
So if you haven’t specifically asked, then ask. And if you doubt what you hear, or that it’s him at all, it’s okay. Keep asking. Keep listening. keep building.
Matthew 7:7 says: Keep asking and it will be given. Keep knocking and it will be opened. Keep searching and you will find.
Are you searching? Are you seeking? What is it that you are finding?
Don’t let your happy trust in the Lord die away, no matter what happens. Remember your reward. Remember his promise. Remember why he sacrificed his only son. He did so in order that we may live; that we may live after this body dies. Would you give up your only son for a group of people who were destined to death, to be non-existent?
