“If God were small enough to be understood, He wouldn’t be big enough to be Worshipped.”
Our Creator can seem to not be present within our lives at times. His perceived absence by us, during times of troubles; pains, disappointments and tragedies, are often-times hidden to our senses. This is also true while we are practicing our spirituals rituals such as prayer, repentance and fasting.
At the appointed time, our Creator will reveal to us, the long string of life events that needed to manifest within our lives that reflect that all things will work together for good for those who are faithful and are committed to God via love!
Everything is needful, [if not necessary,] that our Creator sends, nothing can be needful, [if necessary,] that He withholds. It is very difficult for each disciple to fully trust in every life event that happens to us that is beyond our understanding, if not our ability to control or influence. Our spiritual response is to learn to have a firm reliance in our Creator’s wisdom while trusting His love in spite of what we must endure. “God is ever-present within our living, yet He often-times is ever watchful in His Hiddenness.“
“Trust in yourself and you are doomed to disappointment;
Trust in your friends and they will die and leave you;
Trust in money and you may have it taken from you;
Trust in reputation and some slanderous tongue may blast it;
but trust in God,
and you are never to be confounded in time or eternity.”
-Dwight L. Moody-
