Is God Even Paying Attention?
Have you ever asked the above question? Have you ever felt like you were going through tough situations alone and that God must have gotten off a couple exits back? I have, and chances are you have too. We all go through seasons of hard trials. We all have moments where we feel like we may not survive this and perhaps you have even had that moment where you were ready to throw in the towel. Here is what I have personally learned about those moments in life: "When it doesn't look like God is working at all, He is working the most". Just because we can't see or feel Him, does not mean He is not there. In 1 Kings 17:8-16 we find the story of a widow who was living in a time of famine. She and her son only had enough food for one more meal. There was nothing left in the reserves. No more savings, no more coupons. This was IT! She surely felt hopeless and in despair. In one place she even admitted her feelings when she said, "my son and I are going to eat this and then die". HOWEVER! God was working on the other side of the situation. There was a prophet on the way with a word from God that would become her provision through the remainder of the famine. The Bible says that when she decided to trust in God, her barrel never ran empty. Maybe that's where you are today. You are in the place of giving up. I say to you, hold on and put your trust in God. Not in what you see, but in what He has told you......STEP Forward!
