Melissa — The God-cloaked answer is not about God withholding an answer because we don’t get it. This is not about Him being mean or cruel. He is indeed right the opposite. “It is because of the Lord’s lovingkindness we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great and beyond measure is Your faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23 (AMP). This makes me cry. Our God is so faithful to sustain us through these battles to our answers. In fact, His goodness NEVER runs out! This scripture tells us they are NEW EVERY MORNING! There is new strength and grace to be set free right now. Y’all, He NEVER gave up on plan A which is the John 10:10 abundant life. We choose to live plan B simply because we don’t have a grasp on His love and true intent for us.
As the people of God assemble today around their family computers and in church parking lots, may they reflect on and stand on the faithfulness of their Father God who “changest not” and His “compassions they fail not”, as He has forever been faithful to His people and consistent with His Word, so shall He in these days and days to come. “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,” (Deut.7:9, ESV)
May the people of God lift up their eyes to Him who has never failed His people and who is always faithful and who has a plan and a timetable.
May they take heart and be strengthened by His faithfulness.
“Counting on God’s rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength…” (Hab.3:19, Msg)
