My father died even if we prayed, and prayed hard for His healing.
My life isn’t exactly what the common person would call fun and cool.
I don’t have everything I want. I don’t get everything I ask for.
But I have peace. I have peace due to the fact that 2,000 years ago, a Man named Jesus Christ, steadfast before the most trying of temptations, compassionate, merciful before the hardest of hearts, Life dwelling among death and decay, sinless before God and man – this Man chose to be subject to betrayal, arrest, ridicule, torture;
He was perfect & sinless before God & man, yet He suffered as a criminal in the eyes of both God &man – the most painful & shattering scourging, topped off with a humiliating, slow death hanging naked, nailed to a cross – all the while forsaken by God the Father, separated from all Hope, and love, and all that is good… All for us. All so we would not suffer the same fate.
All so we would be saved, because we couldn’t save ourselves.
In God we trust, because in Christ, we trust.
We may be emotional. We may come out as fanatical. But above all that the world perceives, one thing is definite: we choose to place our trust, our fate, our future to Jesus Christ. We keep believing because He causes everything to happen for the good of those who love Him. We keep believing because through all that has happened, all that is happening, and all that will happen, we know that God never fails, and that He is good, all the time He is good.
In Christ, there is peace, there is hope.
And, again I say… In God we trust, because in Christ, we trust.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 NKJV)
