WHY ARE YOU AFRAID? GOD IS NOT SILENT NEITHER IS HE ABSENT
Why are you afraid! Do you think God is silent or absent. No God cannot sleep nor slumber. He care for you and me. He is God from the beginning, yesterday, today and for ever He remains the Almighty God. (WHY ARE YOU AFRAID?)
DO NOT BE AFRAID WHEN THE GOING BECOME THOUGH JUST LET HIM KNOW YOUR PROBLEM.
In the world today there are storm or treat of epidemic ravaging the world such as CORONA virus or COVID-19 and other deadly diseases. Rumours of war, hunger, kidnapping, insurgence and killings which have imposed treat to the whole world. The answer is to prayer and call on Jesus.
The disciples that was with Him in the boat on their own time tapped Him and he arose, and rebuked the wind, and He said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
WHEN GOD IS SILENT, HE IS NOT ABSENT
WHY ARE YOU AFRAID?
Sometimes, God appears to be absent or far from us. The truth is that He’s never absent from us, He is always there with us but we may not see Him. In our limited knowledge we interpret His silence, for absence.
IS HE ABSENT IN OUR CHALLENGES.
Often, in our challenges, we presume God has forsaken us. Listen to Apostle Peter asked Jesus, “Carest thou not that we perish?” Friends, Jesus cares, much more than we can imagine. Jesus loves us more than we can ever know.
That you can’t see Him doesn’t mean He’s not there. He might not be visible, yet He’s making the crooked ways in our lives to become straight.
CHALLENGES MUST COME EVEN THOUGH JESUS IS YOU
As Jesus and His disciples voyaged across the Sea of Galilee, the storms arose and beat the boat. The boat was at the verge of capsizing. Jesus seemed much unperturbed. The disciples thought it was all over.
They thought they were doomed. However, he that keeps us will neither sleep nor slumber.
The Son of Man was actually asleep but never for the Son of God to sleep.
Jesus’ two natures were at work. His human nature needed rest, but His divine nature was awake and in charge, even over the turbulent sea.
HIS PROMISED VICTORY OVER CHALLENGES.
We do not know what you’re going through right now. May be your business or marriage is at the verge of crashing or breakup.
It may be that your house rent has expired and your landlord/landlady is on your neck and help is not at sight. Relax He have never change, and He cannot change in our own time.
IN TIME OF GOD MOMENT OF SILENCE DRAW NEAR TO HIM.
(WHY ARE YOU AFRAID?)
You may have prayed, fasted, cried and done all you know to do but to no avail. Don’t worry, God is there with you.
He will show up and show forth soon. Watch and see! Remember His promises in Isaiah 43:2, “When you pass through the waters, the rivers, and the fire, I am there with you.” He’s there! Although He may appear silent, He’s there with you.
Not long from now, God will show up for you as a mighty and terrible one. praise the Lord! Jesus is not absent.
May You oh! Lord, increase our faith to always know that your silence doesn’t mean absence. Up hold us with your righteous hands and direct us your part to follow in Jesus name. Amen.
