This is hard.

This is so, so hard.

I don’t think I can handle this?

Why aren’t you changing this situation?

Do you not see what is happening to me?

Do you not know what I am dealing with?

Lord, do you see?

Lord, do you know?

Is this you today?

Are you dealing with a situation that is so intense or so prolonged that at times you wonder if God really sees and really knows what is going on concerning you?

Maybe somewhere deep down inside you expected your journey with the Lord to be easier and you feel disappointed, disillusioned and abandoned because of the difficulties that you presently face.

Although you may not understand what is happening, or why it is happening, Jehovah, the Self-Existing Eternal One sees and knows exactly what you are dealing with.

Yes the situation is hard, yes you are suffering, and no, you did not expect to be dealing with it at this point in your life.

The questions run deep, they swirl around your mind like a whirlwind, tumbling over all that was once so settled, so stable,  so secure, so planned.

Although you may not understand what is happening, or why it is happening, Jehovah, the Self-Existing Eternal One sees and knows exactly what you are dealing with.

As Believers, many times we don’t want to embrace the fact that during our walk with Christ in this world, we will have trials and tribulations, yet the Word is clear on this issue.

Psalms 34:19 states:-

“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.” (NKJV)

In John 16:33 Jesus states:-

“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart,  because I have overcome the world.” (NLT)

James 1:2-4 states:-

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.

For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.

So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” (NLT)

In John 15:18-20, Jesus states:-

“If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you.

If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of  the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you.

Remember that I told you, A servant is not greater than his master [is not superior to him]. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word and obeyed My teachings, they will also keep and obey yours.” (Amplified Bible)

God sees and knows what you are walking through.

From before the foundation of the world was laid He knew this season of your life would arise and He has already put in you, around you and prepared for you all that you need to come out as pure gold.

Do you believe that today?

In Matthew 28:20, the Lord promises that He will always be with us, even to the end of the age, in Hebrews 13:5 He promises never to leave us nor forsake us and in I Corinthians 6:19 and II Timothy 1:14 we are told that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit and He dwells in us.

This means that God is right there with you in your situation whether you perceive Him or not and since He is there, He must see and must know exactly what you are dealing with.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us to everything there is a season and a time to a every purpose under the heavens

To everything there is a season.

To everything there is a set determined time with a beginning and an ending.

Praise God that “everything“includes your present situation.

God sees and knows what you are walking through.

Psalms 30:5 tells us that weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning……..after the night season comes the morning season and with that morning season will come your joy.

Romans 8:28 states, “We are confident that God is able to orchestrate everything to work toward something good and beautiful when we love Him and accept His invitation to live according to His plan.” (The Voice Bible)

Do you believe these scriptures?

Settle the matter once and for all.

Although you may not understand what is happening, or why it is happening, Jehovah, the Self-Existing Eternal One sees and knows exactly what you are dealing with and is with you to help you come through.

I found this song by Lionel Peterson called “Peace” which I believe will bless you as you set your mind to come through.


Be encouraged!
